|Tell us your name.||Katy Jarrett|
|How and when did you first start running?||2018 Zip to Zoom Group. I had tried and failed to get going with running so many times that I just assumed it wasn’t the activity for me!|
|What brought you to Nidd Valley?||My lovely friend Nadene Wilkinson persuaded me to give it one more try|
|When did you join Nidd Valley?||Immediately after completing the Zip to Zoom course|
|What is your favourite running music? Genre or specific tracks?||I haven’t tried running with music yes, I like to chat with others from the group and when I run on my own I tend to organise and plan|
|What is your favourite food before and after running?||When we run on an evening I try to have a snack of a Banana or some Soreen or something similar then I have whatever I fancy for tea when I get back in|
|What is your best running tip that you would like to share with us?||Like Jeff always reminds us ‘Start off steady then slow down a bit more’|
|What is your proudest moment in your running career?||Completing my graduation run 5K at Fountains Abbey, I don’t think anything will ever compare to that. I Genuinely never believed I would ever be able to run 5K without needing to stop. Once you’ve gotten past that first hurdle (generally your own self-doubt) then anything is achievable|
|What are your running goals?||Honestly, just to keep going ha ha!
I would love to complete a 10K as comfortably as I now do a 5K.
I would also love to help out with the next Zip to Zoom group, to give a little back as I have gained so much from doing it myself
|What event are you training for at the moment?||Nothing particularly, with having a young family I am currently limited to what I can commit to|
