I would like to get more women running in and around menopause. One of the lesser-talked about symptoms of perimenopause and menopause - yet one that can be one of the hardest to deal with - is the sudden loss of confidence and self-esteem that can happen at this time in our lives. It can make us feel completely lost and at sea. Running can be a great confidence booster, and I think - and the runners in my running groups have told me - that this is especially the case if you are a beginner. I would also like to held women to feel safer on the streets, especially when running, as I think this is one area that sadly needs a lot more work.
