Col. Dame Kelly Holmes MBE
In this episode of RunPod, Jenni is joined by a true running legend. Colonel Dame Kelly Holmes MBE is a runner with more winner’s bling than you can count on both hands. She’s a two time Olympic, and Commonwealth, gold medal winner, as well as a European and World Championships medalist. In addition to her track success, she has served an impressive military career climbing the ranks to Colonel status, she has ‘HGV driver’ down as a skill on her CV and for the last 10 years, she has held the 800m British record. In this podcast, Kelly gives you a taster of what it feels like to stand on the winner’s podium, how running ‘just for fun’ compares to competing (is it even possible?!) and she fills us in on her rather unusual pets. A hugely motivational and inspiring episode that will definitely have you reaching for your trainers!
