runtofitness clients triumph at the Wilmslow half marathon! 


runtofitness clients Karen and Bernie ran to victory today in the Wilmslow half marathon.

Karen has been training with Alex for several months and completed her first ever half marathon today in a brilliant time of just over two hours!! 

Alex and Karen have worked closeley together focusing on improving her running form and technqiue, general fitness levels and split times. Today the hard work paid off! Alex ran with Karen to provide extra motivation and support to get across the finish line.

Bernie has ran over half marathon distances before but has been working closely with Alex to achieve a sub two hour half marathon time. Through interval, fartlek training and hill sprints Bernie achieved her personal best time today. 

A huge congratulations from runtofitness!!
