If you follow me on Instagram, you may know that I am training to become a running coach. If you had asked me 4 years ago if I would ever see myself being a runner, let alone a running coach, I would have falling off my seat laughing. Nope, back then it was certainly not something I ever saw myself doing, yet here I am – funny how life changes.
In 2017, I found an online marathon coaching certificate that I really wanted to do. At that time I was thinking more for my own knowledge rather than being a coach, but after being a clinic instructor at the Running Room, I found something that combines two of my favourite things – running and telling people what to do. It wasn’t until 2018 that I signed up and got cracking on the workload (and let me tell you, this course is full on comprehensive, with an exam, case study, first aid course, and coaching a volunteer client!).
