Belfast, Northern Ireland

My name is Janet Sproule and I’m the leader of Badass Lady Gang Belfast. I started running in November 2014 using a Couch25K app on my phone and in April 2015, joined a live Couch25K programme and I was hooked. I wanted to join the Badass Lady Gang Movement as it has a similar philosophy to mine. No one is too fast or too slow. No one should ever be left behind in a run or race. It’s about the finish not the fast. I’ve been the one at the back of the pack in every distance. I’ve been through recovery periods and feeling like I have to start all over again. It can be pretty lonely at the back but it can also be the most rewarding experience ever and you often meet other people and get to hear their stories, support them, or be supported by them. I want Badass Lady Gang Belfast to encourage all you ladies out there to just get out and run, walk, jog, and workout in a group where you will be supported, have the opportunity to socialise with others in an active environment, have fun, and build our own inclusive Badass Lady Gang community. I look forward to meeting you!
