Dockside Runners has become my calling in a way. I never in a million years thought it would give me so much happiness, experiences, friendships and so many laughs. Without this club I wouldn’t have trained for my first marathon, becoming a pacer, becoming a Leader in Running Fitness and my first foray into coaching. It wouldn’t have given me the joys of bringing on the next generation of firsts, be it their first mile, 5k, 10k half marathon and the marathon. I wouldn’t be able to share in the highs and lows of our athletes, from runs where they think they can’t do this to 10 minute PBs in the rain and cold crossing the line together hand in hand. This club has changed my life in ways you couldn’t possibly imagine. It’s made me become comfortable being Ken.
