A Volunteers Journey to Becoming 'A Runner' at the IAAF World Athletics Championships

From a young age I started running with my dad and joined the local running club; I have always loved sport especially Athletics.

This Girl Can Run 20 Miles......Just!

We had both completed this race last year so knew what to expect...hills, 2 laps and the pain that overcomes you at approximately mile 17 knowing there...
