Our ALL TIME LEGENDS - Meet Christine Ball

Our ALL TIME LEGENDS - Meet Christine Ball

When did you begin running/walking?

I began running in 1981 and switched to walking in 2005 as it was less wear and tear on my body.

Do you have any event highlights you'd like to share?

My event highlight is walking the Half Marathon with my daughter three times as she carried the latest grandchild in a baby pack. My daughter was walking to get back into shape after childbirth. (We did this with Josh 2009, Bina 2012 and Kipp 2014).

What drives you to return year after year?

I return year after year because it is always a well-organised event and it is a scenic enjoyable course.

Do you have any motivation secrets to help get out the door?

My favourite motivation secret to getting out the door is to arrange to walk with a friend and also to join a walking/running club.

Anything else you would like to share?

I feel very lucky to have enjoyed good health on the first Sunday/Saturday in August year after year.
