We welcome the new year by shinning our spotlight to rising athlete and mum, Amanda Mercer. She shares with us how her initial decision to go to the gym led her to her running journey.
Over to you Amanda!
After a lazy Christmas I decided to start going to the gym. My trainer suggested that I do running. It’s not something I ever thought of doing, but every week when I run, I slowly added more miles. Later on, I decided to do my first race in May, the Liverpool Rock n’ Roll Half Marathon and it was then on that I got the running bug! I was lucky enough to have run the half marathon in Dublin and Disneyland Paris! The bling was amazing and I wanted to have it on display. I tagged my husband in MedalDisplays’s pictures A LOT!! Finally the hinting payed off and I got a medal display as one of my birthday gifts of the kids which my husband hung up straight away. Now while I'm in the kitchen I look at it admiringly and look forward to adding to my bling collection from races in the future.
