Leon Nash, Virtual Warrior
A bit about me. During my teenage years, I was lucky enough to travel the country representing my swimming club as well as being a very talented footballer. Then at the age of 17, I moved away from my home town of Nuneaton with my family and began a new chapter in Bournemouth. Unfortunately, I never continued with my sports and soon began to put on weight and lose the fitness levels I had built up during my teenage years.
I have had many jobs but none has been as rewarding as my current post as the Head of Year 11 at a large school in Bournemouth, where I have the privilege of working with and learning from my brother, Brad.
Brad is responsible for getting me back on the right track; he could see that I was too unfit to join in the games my two children, Adam and Holly, wanted to play as I would easily get out of breath. He bought me a ticket for the hardcore 10km ‘Wild Running’ race’ known as The Wolf Run. It was one of the best experiences of my life and I was soon booking my next event. I decided as I crossed the finish line that I needed to get fit if I was continue on my new chosen path.
Since 2014, through sheer determination, dedication and with the support of my family, friends and the Mutts Nutts running team, I have lost 2 stone! But I still have a long way to go …
