Guide Leader to Runner- Inspired by the Games

27th Nov 2012

Chinley guides celebrate 'Bolt Style' with leader, Nicola Parkin who won a £50 voucher in the Active Derbyshire 'Inspired by the Games' competition. Nicola wrote a wonderful letter, which demonstrates all the reasons why people find it difficult to get into sport, and how she overcame all those barriers, to run 5km this autumn. Nicola was initially 'dragged' out on a run, with the Guides, but she found herself strangely drawn to it. Nicola's entry to the Inspired by the Games competition tells how she became hooked ..... 

"... a little voice inside my head kept nagging me along. I made it to the end of that first run. By the time I’d showered, I was thinking about the next time…....I’m deliberately only looking one step ahead, to my next run. An infinite, yet undefined goal. Faster, higher, stronger!". Well done Nicola! Your Guides are very proud.
