On the first day of Lockdown two, I spoke to driven woman Emma Page, about running, about being a mental health ambassador and about helping to launch her company's Sustainability Pledge, featured in this week's Property Week.
Emma recently took part in the South Downs Way 50-mile run – a lockdown challenge, with bells on. She's been running for just a few years but has managed a demanding role as Business Operations Manager at property management firm, Ashdown Phillips, with ultramarathon training and racing (including 11 marathons in one year). Running, she said, has helped her manage her own anxiety and channel the emotions of the 'coronacoaster'.
Emma's also been instrumental in leading runners at work and played a part in her company's recent Steptober challenge, raising over £4,000 for LandAid's Steptober appeal, which aims to end youth homelessness in the UK.
Finally, at the start of the second lockdown, Emma launched a Facebook group to share her passion for running, Ladies who Runch (run at lunchtime), why not join in?
