"In Year 12 I joined the Lurgan College cross-country club which runs every Thursday after school. This club has undoubtedly motivated me to be more active during the school week and at the weekends. I have noticed that XC training has helped me to improve my personal running times and has allowed me to escape from the pressures that a busy school year can bring. More than that, and most importantly, it has encouraged me to make new friends with people in different year groups.
Although XC can be tough when the weather deteriorates (this year we have had some very frosty afternoons and even some strong winds pushing against us), I have found the XC club to be a place where I can improve my physical fitness among those who I now call my friends."
