Jerry Lockspeiser’s story
Jerry is a man on a mission. After years of playing football, he stopped due to the length of time it was taking to recover from injury. He decided to take part in the Great North Run in 2008 and now, Jerry does not stop.
He has been involved in 15 marathons since 2011, including 5 of the 6 Abbott Marathon majors, with his time getting gradually quicker.
His aim when starting with The Running School was to break 3 hours 30 minutes. He finally did that at the Valencia Marathon last month with 3 hours 27 minutes. Jerry believes that the Running School were a major reason for him being able to break 3 hours 30 minutes.
‘Number one, the Running School has improved my technique which has made me run better, faster and with more endurance. They have also taught me to think about my technique when running. I have also had a huge reduction in hamstring injuries which has been a huge bonus.’
When asked whether Jerry would recommend the Running School, he replied, ‘I regularly do! Why? Good results, nice people, nice atmosphere and very focused on each individual’s needs.’
Do not forget, Jerry has written a book, ‘Your Wine Questions Answered: The 25 Things Wine Drinkers Most Want to Know’ for all those wine lovers. The book is priced at £8.99 and 100% of the proceeds will be donated to The Millione Foundation to build primary schools in Sierra Leone.
