About Women’s Running

We all take up running for different reasons – to improve our health, lose a few pounds, raise money for charity, or perhaps because we drunkenly made a pact with a friend. But, whatever the reason, we all share the benefits of what running can deliver: inner strength, fearlessness, fitness, self-belief, self-esteem - the effects are countless. You only have to read this month’s cover star Viv’s incredible story to hear the effects of running. After undergoing a double mastectomy following a breast cancer diagnosis, Viv made the courageous decision not to have reconstructive surgery – a decision directly influenced by taking up running and the newfound body confidence this gave her. As we move into the New Year, confidence is going to be key to ensuring we reach our goals, whether that’s taking up running for the first time, upping our distance or losing weight (you can find plans for all three on page 32). Now is the time to harness self-belief and, to help you do so, we’ve got tips for you from life coach Steve Chamberlain. When you let go of limiting beliefs, you’ll be surpised how far it can take you, after all, as Chamberlian says, “beliefs are just thoughts we buy into, so it’s important we choose wisely!”
