This month we share Agata Martins’ story of how running has helped her become stronger than before and escape the hustle and bustle of daily routine. She is a true inspiration especially to her son.
Over to you Agata.
“What a great year it has been, my love for running couldn’t get bigger. I love escaping from everyday problems and challenges and having some well deserved me time.
I got this Medal Display last year and completely forgot about it until a few months ago when I thought it’s time to display my achievements.
It’s amazing how we find energy to push ourselves further and try harder! I am a couple of runs away from my 30th Parkrun, completed a few 10k’s and the biggest challenge to date, is Southport Half Marathon in the crazy heat!
I remember struggling running 5k’s, and now when I go out I just want more, more miles, trying to go further each time!!!! And the happiest moments are when your little boy wants to join you on your adventures and run with you. Happy Mum = Happy Family.
I ran my 10k race exactly a year after taking part in my first ever 10k. When I put the medal on my display after the race I said to my husband “I think it’s time for a new one”.
My collection is complete, a year of running proudly displayed on my wall.
I could never have dreamed of my hard work being recognised and getting rewarded for doing something I love. Thank you Medal Displays for your kind gift.”
