February Woman of the Month: Emily Capps
Congratulations to Emily Capps who is our winner for February. Emily was nominated by Kerrie Gallagher who said,
In April 2016 Emily was asked to be the maid of honour at a friends wedding. This sparked Emily into action - not only loosing over 7 stone in weight, but taking on all sorts of new sporting challenges. After years of back problems which limited some physical activity she started building herself up to running and now participates each week in her local parkrun and is training for her first 10km in March. Not only this, but last year in April 2017 Emily undertook a massive challenge - walking around the Isle of Wight in one go, a massive 68 miles. The challenge took 25 hours, an impressive time considering the terrain. Emily has totally changed her life - she was never a stranger to being active, but in the last 2 years she has made significant changes which have enabled her to take on new and significant challenges - which she has excelled in. She won't be stopping anytime soon either, having just signed up to walk across Wales in June!
