About Joanne

My name is Joanne, I’m married to Simon and have two boys, aged 13 and 17.  I enjoy running for the physical and mental health benefits that come with it.  Running and walking, and being out in the fresh air has helped me enormously, especially over the last 18 months.  I usually run with a friend who has recently beaten cancer, so we often set the world to rights whilst we are pounding the pavements!  

I also enjoy playing tennis with my family, and have recently joined a local club.  I started running over 13 years ago, just after my youngest was born, and have entered a few races such as the Sandy 10, as well as completing the Peterborough Half Marathon in 2007.

How is your training going?

As I run often, I am now conscious that I need to increase my mileage so I am just taking it gently and increasing my miles week on week so that I can finish the course!

What made you run for Papworth Trust?

I am running for the Papworth Trust as this is a charity that our company One Broker Ltd. Supports so entering the Cambridge Half Marathon gives me the opportunity to personally help, raise much needed funds and of course awareness of this fantastic charity!
