Mental Health Ambassador.

Christiane James: Mental Health Ambassador: Her story. (pictured left). In 2009, prompted by a life event, I started running again. I decided to do the GNR to raise money for Cancer Research. I found that I enjoyed running and from thereon I increased the mileage every week. I particularly liked running outdoors as it helped me to switch off from the pressures of life and gave me time to clear my head. Who would have thought then that I would go on running London Marathon this year, a week before my 59th birthday? Running makes me feel ” Forever Young” and joining Elswick Harriers contributed to making new friends with whom I have built a genuine camaraderie as we battle the wind and rain together on training days and race days.
