SOPHIE POWER - THE JOURNEY FROM PREGNANCY TO PERFORMANCE

SOPHIE POWER - THE JOURNEY FROM PREGNANCY TO PERFORMANCE

Over the past few months we've followed Sophie's journey from the final month of her pregnancy through the birth of her daughter, and documented her steps to recovery from the huge physical changes of pregnancy and labour. We take an honest look into the pre and post natal challenges facing women who want to start and grow their families without compromising their goals. While positive images of female runners are commonplace, we're taking the important step of addressing the often unspoken barriers that women face - both physical and mental.

But with reports of women bearing a disproportionate amount of the additional pressures, it is crucial to make that bit of time for yourself to take care of your physical and mental health. Make time for your daily run, and find the #timetofly.
