Stephen Curry is a Support Worker and Team Leader from County Durham. He started running some 5 years ago when, after pulling a few muscles in his back, his physiotherapist recommended that he do some strength training to strengthen his core. From day one, Stephen was hooked, and he now runs competitively, with his first marathon scheduled for October 2016.
Stephen loves to travel and emerge himself in new cultures, and he also describes himself as a ‘big foodie’ with a hunger for tasty cuisine. He loves watching movies and going to the cinema too, and when he’s not working or spending time with his wife and son, he can be found running and participating in other activities such as rugby and basketball.
To create an even balance between work, training and family time, Stephen run commutes to work most days. He loves the fact that by simply running to work he can lower his carbon footprint, save money, and arrive feeling refreshed and ready to tackle the day ahead, and so he frequently encourages others to do the same.
The Benefits of Running
Stephen is passionate about running, and his enthusiasm for run commuting is infectious. When we asked him why he continues to run each day, he said, “I love it, if I get up early enough it puts me in a great frame of mind for the entire day. Running is really like a drug, it gives you a natural high, it's total freedom, put on your trainers you can go anywhere! The other thing about running, you meet some awesome people, great for socialising.”
While Stephen describes himself as ‘still looking for his dream job’, we think he may just have found it as a Brand Ambassador for IAMRUNBOX. We’re delighted to have him on-board!
