To mark International Women’s Day, social runner, Rachel, tells us why she runs…

Reasons to Run

More and more women are getting in to running, so for International Women's Day, Rachel Evans tells us why she loves running:

"My running journey took me from non-runner to marathon runner in fourteen months. Running has become my therapy, my addiction and my new best friend. I have a new family around me (we put the ‘social’ in to social running) and a new-found belief in myself and what I can do mentally and physically.

There is no better feeling than finishing a run, whether it’s a mile around the block or 26.2 marathon miles. Some people climb mountains to hit that high, but for me, as I finish every run I feel on top of the world!!”
