Shirley Marshall I have been a Trustee of Teamwork for a number of years and thoroughly enjoy being part of the Teamwork community. I have been approached on several occasions to take part in the Great North Run, and until this year I never had the confidence in myself to agree to take part. However on commencing a "new year, new me" type attitude to training & fitness in January, I said YES!

Taking on this challenge for Teamwork fills me with mixed emotions as I find it difficult to self-motivate myself when it comes to exercise - so part of me worries that I won't make it. The other part of me is full of excitement, anticipation and pride at the thought of running on behalf of Teamwork and contributing to the continued success of this amazing charity. It is that thought that I know will motivate me to train and complete the run - however long it takes me! Shirley Marshall
