Interview with Steve Pickering ~ Managing Partner ~ Ernst and Young
What do you enjoy about running?
My best time is after the run, coming home after an early morning run and realizing that I have the whole day ahead of me. It sets up me up for the whole day and sets a positive frame of mind for the day
What is your top tip for running?
Establish a small routine. Getting started is the hardest part. But once you start – it is great.
What gets you going ?
Just getting ready – that your shoes are ready, good running socks and having a glass of water before the run. Also important to set a plan. 4 months ago I couldn’t even run for one kilometer, now I can run 10km . Once you get going your body takes over and then it becomes a matter of the mind over the body. Since I started running 4 months ago, I lost 7kg, I am eating well and feel great.
