In 2018 I took up the Orbis Challenge alongside twenty others and Dame Kelly Holmes, I was so inspired by this that I started Artisan Design which now brings Kenyan Beaded Running Bracelets to the UK.
Running in the winter months can be tough – there’s no denying that! However, it can also be exhilarating and surprisingly enjoyable; if you want to get out there and run, the weather shouldn’t stop you (within reason).
Being active is great for both your physical and mental health; it can increase self-esteem, reduce stress and anxiety and improve social connections, amongst a variety of additional benefits. When it comes to the management of my own mental health, sport has helped me in a multitude of ways.
The 2019 World Championships Marathon commenced earlier this month, with the women's event kicking things off on Friday the 27th of September and the Men's a week later on Sunday the 6th of October.
Artisan Founder, Rob, is heading away this weekend on an exciting adventure. He’s going to be travelling to Malawi to take part in the Orbis Challenge acting as a Team Leader alongside Kelly Holmes.
