Christine rose from the couch and donned her trainers when she was approaching 35 years old, just to accompany her neighbour in her get fit campaign. Months later she joined Pitreavie AAC and was by then already in the ‘Veteran’ category. A competitive streak soon saw her picking up a few awards in her category and returning some very good Marathon and Half Marathon times. Soon the competitiveness gave way to the desire to encourage others to follow in her footsteps and in 2003 she became one of the founder Leaders of jogscotland Dunfermline. Her greatest passion is to share her experience and knowledge with new Joggers and nurture them along the road to fitness and health. She loves this so much that it is her wish (although unlikely!) to be able to continue being a Jog Leader until she receives her telegram from the Queen.
