Member in the Spotlight - Josh Palmer

Welcome to the our second feature on our members, this time we hear from Josh Palmer, a member of Burnden Road Runners for 2 years and with sights on Barcelona this year!

How long have you been a member of Burnden Road Runners?

2 years

When and why did you first start running?

During lockdown, to keep my fitness up

Proudest running achievement to date?

Running 8 half marathons in one year and 2 of those in the same weekend

Favourite race and why?

Great Manchester half, my very first half marathon. Always ran this with some amazing people, it just holds a special place for me and always will do.

Have you set any short or long term goals?

Not just running as such, but Ironman Barcelona this October!

What do you find most challenging?

As with most things like running, keeping out of your head has to be one of the most challenging aspects as it’s more of a mental game then anything else.

Best tip or advice for others?

Don’t lose yourself chasing PB’s or comparing yourself to others. Enjoy the journey, and keep moving forward.

Good luck Josh from all of us at Burnden with your Ironman in Barcelona and thank you for sharing your running story with us all.
