Meet the Member – Louisa Enriquez completes 50 parkruns

Q) For members who don’t know you, tell us a bit about yourself?

A) I used to live on a tropical island in malaysia ‘working’ as a scuba diving instructor. Now the only fish I get to see are those in the form of fish fingers that I feed my 3 girls after a long day at work!! Ha ha

Q) How and when did you get into running?

A) I used to be extremely fit scuba diving, but after having my 1st child and eating way to many donuts I had put on 6 stone and couldn’t walk up a hill without thinking I was literally going to die! So between having more children (and being careful with the amount of donuts I was eating) I lost the weight and then started to run. I run for one reason and that’s so I can eat those donuts and still walk up a hill without dying!!

 

Q) What do you enjoy most about being a member of Sandhurst Joggers?

A) I can now run up a hill without dying!!! Gotta love that rollercoaster run. Its great being part of a club that has different ability levels!

 

Q) On which of the weekly runs are we most likely to bump into you?

A) Tuesday

 

Q) I see you’ve mostly run at Rushmoor, tell us what you like about Parkrun Rushmoor?

A) I run Rushmoor purely for the easy parking and fast course! Ha ha

 

Q) Of the other venues you’ve tried which did you like best and why?

A) I find Bracknell and Frimley are more pretty and scenic. I really enjoyed Bushy Park run as it the home of the parkrun and a few of the club went, but I hated it only being a 1 lap course much prefer 2 laps for pacing

 

Q) What other events are in your plans for 2018?

A) Alice Holt 10k, Windsor Half and Rushmoor 10k. Plan for 2019 is a sub 2hr half!
