When I tentatively took my first steps to getting physically fit, I didn’t realise that this was the start of an extraordinary change of mindset and self-discovery. While feeling the depths of grief – my father had recently died along with a heartbreak from a long-term friendship breaking – I joined parkrun.

My running story has inspired others about the positive mental effect, the benefits, of being physically active.

Join me for my talk: Running through grief and matters of the heart, as part of Write Up! Speak Up!  Support local writers and performers at this showcase event, as part of Wells Festival of Literature.

The event is hosted by BBC Somerset’s Simon Parkin, curated by Bryony Jayne Brook.
