I am new to football. Basketball was my first sport but a knee injury as a teenager put a stop to that. Then Uni and work meant I became inactive except for walking.
In my mid 30s I started running, inspired by watching the London Marathon again. I completed the London Marathon the year I turned 40. I set up Mile End parkrun in 2012 and have now completed over 100 parkruns (but volunteered a lot more…) My running is now more of a walk. When moving back to Scotland I used sport to meet people. Walking sports appealed so I was happy to see there was a local Ladies session. I joined when the sessions were at NICC and felt very welcomed.
