Last quote by Laura Kay

At school I’d always felt I was terrible at sport. But then I committed to a 13.1 mile charity race and discovered my love of running. Standing in the muddy field with my chubby legs – pink from the wind – poking out of my brand new polyester gym shorts, I breathlessly wobbled towards the rest of my class who had bounded on ahead. I’m a small, sweaty 11-year-old and this hellish scene was my introduction to cross-country running. In fact, it was the first time I’d run after anything that wasn’t the ice-cream van. Dragging myself around the field in front of my new class cemented it: I was not a sporty girl and it was not for me.feedback
