Leader: Towerby, JHB South
My name is Lavern Baggott, married with two kids, a boy (7) and a girl (2) living in Johannesburg South. I enjoyed athletics in my younger years and that took a backseat due to studies, work and motherhood.
I started out just looking for another way to lose weight, but then I realized that running is about commitment, patience and perseverance. I enjoy the high after doing something I told myself I couldn’t do.
I got introduced to CMIYC and I felt like I was in a safe space within just a few months. I’m just getting to a good place in my life, I’m getting my health and fitness on track and with that I’m hoping to be an example to my family.
My goals going forward are to have a healthy, fit and active lifestyle so much so that I can lead my family to make healthy conscious and well informed decisions.
I have also committed to training and getting run fit for my first Half Marathon in late 2017.
I’m hoping to reach many more ladies who find themselves in the same predicament I did so that we can support and push each other to reach our personal and mutual goals. So that we can be a better version of ourselves and the start of an unstoppable movement by creating awareness on the importance of living a healthy, fit and active lifestyle.
