Since joining Kembla Joggers, I have enjoyed my running so much more. Everyone is so friendly and there are the elite runners and then those who just run to keep fit... but everyone runs for fun. I go to their training sessions every Tuesday and try to get to every race of the winter and summer series.
In January 2010, I gave birth to my 2nd son Mason. I started running 3 weeks after - getting back into it very slowly. Again, it took me 5 months to start running the times I was pre-pregnancy. I went back to KJ's and ran the winter series that year. I have been lucky enough to talk to some experienced KJ's members - I met an original KJ's member, Jim Hennessy while marshaling at a KJ's event and he told me, "There is no secret to running, you just have to run!". Shortly after that, I ran the city to surf in 73 mins and then the Blackmores Half Marathon in 110 mins.
