Our programs are transformational. With positive impacts to mind, body and spirit for our runners.
HAVE YOU EVER WANTED TO LEARN TO RUN?
Our women runners are inspirational. Before they start we often see a lack of belief in themselves, the old I can’t do this attitude. But, step by step, as they feel supported and encouraged they realise they can do it and their confidence sky-rockets.
Since starting to run with BOTR I have achieved not only the finish of the city2surf but also the half marathon which I could not have done without the support of all the run leaders. Through BOTR I have fun new friends and run companions and a passion to support my mental health which I am forever grateful for.
And MEL as a leader of this organisation you just rock in all the volunteer work you do and what you give back to the communities. I am looking forward to running many years with the BOTR team.
I signed up to Boobs on the Run because I wanted to improve my fitness and make some new friends.
I got all that and so much more. Three years on and I’m more fit than I’ve ever been, I’m part of a wonderful supportive community of friends, and I’ve discovered the amazing benefits in mental well-being that running can provide. What Mel has created with Boobs on the Run is truly life-changing. Running makes me happy!
At 44, following a radical hysterectomy which resulted in surgical menopause I was eager to ensure that I could look after my heart and bone health which is impacted by menopause. I have been a gym goer and personal trainer devotee at different times of my life but a busy schedule meant that I wanted to undertake a new form of exercise that was time efficient and independent. So, running it was. I found BoTR by accident via social media. I signed up for a Get Running program at the start of 2020 and during the first meet and greet session I met the ‘face of approachable running’, Ally MacDonald. I have now just started my 4th program with BoTR and Ally is still my run leader. I am now ‘a runner’. I run for my mental and physical health and for the fabulous women I have met during your running programs. I have taken advantage of BoTR partners (iMove and Running Science) to keep me running safely and I schedule my life around my early morning group and homework runs with my ‘girls’. The wonderful, authentic, generous and supportive women who have become such an important part of my life. Thank you for starting your wonderful program. Attached is a photo of two of my running friends who I met through that first program. I have permission to share this photo as we all feel exactly the same way about BoTR (Meischak, Kim and Caroline.). Thank you!
Training with Boobs has turned my running routine from a chore to something I look forward to each week. The support and encouragement from the amazing run leaders helped me through my first half marathon, something I never thought I’d achieve. Now I’m looking at doing another one and am even looking forward to it. I’ve met amazing women through Boobs and love our “chatty runs”, a brilliant community to be a part of.
