On this episode I share my interview with Leanne Davies, Founder of Run Mummy Run, the online community with 60,000 Facebook members focused on happier and healthier lives.
On work-life balance Leanne says;
It used to be the scales with the work on one side and life on the other. My work creeps into my life and my life creeps into my work. It’s very different now.
Leanne initially founded a Facebook group called Run Mummy Run. This was set up with 2 friends because they wanted to motivate each other if and when they couldn’t always get to their running club. Further more, it was designed to fit around their lives as being mothers.
This has slowly grown from a few people.
Today (6 years later) they are now up to 60,000 runners! The group motivates people and as a result they meet up regularly. Similarly they do Park run and run races together.
In Leanne’s words;
They provide the platform for women to lead happier and healthier lives.
The community is built on togetherness and bonding. Consequently, 6 years on she still pinches herself by how much it’s grown and how much people want to interact and support one another.
Doing something you love and enjoy
It’s really important and Leanne feels ever so grateful to be able to do that.
Run Mummy Run has evolved from being a hobby to becoming her passion. She’s found her thing and Leanne says it doesn’t feel like a job at all.
Leanne’s passion comes from her dad and she’s been supported by her mum and husband as well.
The bigger the community grows, the more energy and effort it takes to sustain it. At the heart of this growth continues to be the aim of encouraging more women to live healthier and happier lives.
If you don’t have that work-life balance it doesn’t matter, as long as you’re happy.
