Here come the girls…

On the C25K forum, there are many, many people I am happy to call friends and family. We’ve never met and probably never will, but we share a bond. We all have either kicked the couch and are runners, or we are starting our running lives.

Some names are already known,  like Razouski who has been immortalised with the retro runners inaugural playlist on Spotify. Every playlist name has a relevance to me and the forum. There’s one special lady who has had a hell of a running life and she always manages to come out at the end, if not smiling,  then determined to keep on. That lady is MummyCav, a fellow smoothie, and so my new retro runners playlist is chockful of ladies names and a few lady power anthems, in honour of MummyCav…
