Tell us your name. Carolyn Easton – (Caz)
How and when did you first start running? It started with walking the Race for Life with my sister in law in 2010. After the birth of my daughter I was diagnosed with chronic pelvic instability and was told I may never run again. I spent the next 5 years working with a great physio who helped me get from walking in pain to now running marathons! No my running style is not pretty it’s just fuelled by grit and determination. I have to work hard at it and it pushes me out of my comfort zone but I love the feeling of freedom it gives me and I thoroughly enjoy running events in Yorkshire throughout all the seasons.
