About me

I hated Sports Day at school. The only race I ever won was the egg & spoon race and I proudly still have my winner badge. I didn’t suddenly develop a love for running or have aspirations of getting into my ‘pre-kids’ clothes (although I can always dream), in reality I joined the Beginners Course because I wanted to be able to play with my children without being exhausted. Multiple blood clots during my second pregnancy resulted in dodgy lungs and my breathing was said to be ‘about as good as it was going to get’. With my background in Holistic Health and Physical Therapy, I wanted to prove the doctors wrong. Not in my wildest dreams did I think I would complete the course let alone still be running 4 years later, so to be a Run Leader is amazing albeit bonkers. Joining the club has been the best thing I have ever done and the most fun. There can be so many challenges, whether it be getting out the door, social anxieties, commitment, fitness, mental health, physical health or just a lack of oomph but I love being part of HRC because it is inclusive and supportive of everyone, whether they enjoy racing or plodding and marathons or mud-runs. It’s all about feeling good and having fun – whatever your goal, pace or reason to run.

About me

I was never really a runner. At school I was a sprinter and took part in all the 100m, 200m and relay races. I loved racing and the speed of it. I also preferred team games taking part in netball, 5 a side football and rounders.PE was my favourite subject and I took it for GCSE and A Level as well as a community sports leadership award. I then spent work experience in a gym and have always been into some form of exercise. I got a bit lazy after having 3 children and saw a post about Haverhill Beginners course and in Jan 2017 took the plunge to sign up alone and go for it to see if I could conqueror my fear of distance (I mean 5k from 100m is one hell of a distance) and I was hooked. I went on to up my distance, run 10ks and in the following year I was signing up to half marathons and recently did VLM.I feel very strongly about mental health, suffering with it myself and along with Sil, I coach and manage Run and Talk Haverhill every month and recently completed my CiRF after being a LiRF for 2 years. I love running but I love helping people more and seeing them reach their goals and conquer their mental health makes it all worth while. Everyone that knows me will tell you I’m a chatterbox and you can probably hear me before you see me, but I am very friendly, approachable and always here to listen as-well as coach. As one of the clubs mental health champions, if you need someone to talk to, please feel free to get in contact any time.

About me

I took up running in order to take part in the London Marathon when I was 50 and haven’t looked back since. I have done the London Marathon three times but my last marathon, 20 years on, was in Milton Keynes.

I joined HRC 10 years ago and have benefited from the training, encouragement, discipline, and friendships it promotes.

The fitness and confidence I gained has opened up other opportunities such as triathlons, duathlons, 100 mile bike rides and many walking and trekking holidays.

I am keen to do what I can to help others find the same pleasure that I have from running.

Tracy Quarrell

About me

I ran with my Dad as a youngster. He would always joke that I had a stitch before I got out of the door! I stuck with it and ran at school and at Uni. When I was in my 20s and 30s I ran a little but kept fit generally doing dance, gym and yoga activities. In my 40s I took up running again and was encouraged by friends to join the club. My running times improved and I can now run longer with the encouragement of running buddies. 

I have met some lovely friends at the club and know that whatever pace I am running there will be a group and friends to encourage and keep me going. 

This summer I qualified as a run leader and hope to go on to pursue coaching further in the future. 

I run because it keeps me fit, gets me outside and helps to calm my mind. It makes me smile. 

My Dad still runs in his 70’s and is fit and healthy, job done!

About me

I started running when I turned 40 years old. The middle life crisis hit me hard so I put on shorts, vest and old trainers and started to run. I have never looked back.

I have raced in all distances from 5k to Marathon. I have a joy of running that I hope shines through to all who join our beginners groups.

My motto “it’s just one foot in front of the other”
