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
