I have been very lucky to be asked to do the photographs for County Durham Sport’s This Girl Can campaign. The aim of this national campaign is to celebrate active women up and down the country who are doing their thing no matter how well they do it or how they look while they doing it. Within this celebration County Durham Sport want to encourage women to get involved with sporting activities they may not normally think about. Today was This Girl Can Run.
Considering how cold it was, sub-zero temperatures, these women were very motivated and just happy to be there. Some bought their babies in buggies and ran with them, some did their cool down exercises with their babies in arms and some took time out of running to breastfeed. I came away thinking “aren’t women/mums blummin’ great!” and resolved to join a running group (at the time of writing I haven’t but I will….I will!)
