Ambassador Profile: Frankie Carr

So where to begin, what has OCR done for me?  Well I'm a wife, mum and 3 years ago weighed 19.5 stone. I was active as a youngster; swimming, cross country and horse riding were my passion and I was selected for the English school cross country championships. After 18 life changed and I went out more, partied and saw friends. Sports slowly drifted out of my life.

After I got married and started my family, my weight just crept up and up and my active lifestyle was a memory. Then in 2013 my hubby went away on a 4-month military posting and I decided now was the time to take control. No quick fix diets, just a simple combination of eating healthy and starting to exercise.

In 12 months I had lost weight and was much fitter than I was before but I was lacking a goal. So me and a friend set ourselves one; to do an OCR at the end of 2014, We completed it…Just, but I came away with a sense of achievement and pride. I watched some of the elite runners and thought; this is what I want to do, so I trained harder though the winter and early 2015, I became hungry to race and to do well and to my amazement I won my first solo OCR. This Sport truly does except everyone weather you are there to have fun and complete a personal Goal or you are there to race to be the best YOU can be. OCR is what keeps me going, training hard and drives me to improve each time I race. This sport will continue to grow and thrive and in doing so it is allowing people of all ages to do the same, and to keep achieving things that they never thought were possible.
