January Strider of the Month

Sheila Bugg - Sheila joined the club 4 years ago completing the beginners course. Since then she has managed to achieve goals in her running despite being set back many times due to her health. More recently she has managed to take part in pecos and run over 100 miles in January shortly after thinking she may never be able to return to running. Sheila shows such determination, perseverance and strength when others would just give up. She is also such a thoughtful person who encourages and supports others who are new to running and is always happy to cheer and support others in the club. We could all learn a thing or 2 from such a lovely lady.
