It was the peak of summer in early December 2017 that I began my running journey with RK POD. Naturally, I was nervous and the many little voices in my mind were questioning me all at once. Will I know anyone? Will I be able to keep up? What if I get lost on this trail? Upon opening my car door to join The POD for the first time, warm smiles welcomed me.
‘PODsters’ immediately assured me that no runner is ever left behind and how true that was. Jules and Leigh supported me on my first run, sacrificing longer kilometres to guarantee that my first experience was positive. I will never forget this moment of inclusion with pure reassurance. Every week I look forward to running with a wide range of athletes that share the joy of running and the taste of a quality cuppa.
RK POD offers opportunities to runners of all abilities and levels of fitness. I began my journey 6 months ago being able to run 5km and in just under 4 weeks I will be running my first half marathon with confidence largely due to the training and support that is provided by Ross. The positivity and encouragement that is carried within the group is infectious.
Each and every week, RK POD caters for all runners with differentiated programs to suit all goals and needs. I am thrilled to belong to RK POD and thankful for the time, effort and support that Ross dedicates to every RK POD member.
