Meet the R4R Runners #13 (take two)
Firstly, I apologise for the double up on Meeting Lara, but she’s so nice, we got to meet her twice… The upside of this mistake is that we now get to meet Elise!
Elise has been a consistent force at R4R and even through a knee injury, she kept rocking up and is always a pleasure to talk to and catch up with. It’s people like Elise who keep coming to R4R that make it the great community that it is, and for that Elise, we’re very thankful.
So without further ado, let’s meet Elise!

In the 2022 edition of the R4R Gift, who will win the coveted Clydesdale award 100kg and above? Jonesy, Benny A, or other?

We thought Jonesy got another one with the double up from Lara, but unlucky, it’s all about Benny A. Thanks for your answers, Elise!
