This week I'm joined by semi-professional runner Megan Taylor. We talk about how she went from being a complete novice to recently finishing 26th out of 23,000 female runners in The Great North Run. How running is excellent for your mind and your body and how it's helped build her confidence. She also gives tips on how to start if you're a complete beginner.

Megan talks about the Reclaim Your Run movement set up by Women's Health and Runner's World magazines after 60% of women surveyed said they'd been harassed while out running. You can find out more by following #reclaimyourrun on social media or join this campaign https://www.ourstreetsnow.org/our-mission which was founded by the girls in Lewes Running Club.

She also mentions Couch to 5K as a great way to start running. You can get involved here www.nhs.uk/live-well/exercise/couch-to-5k-week-by-week/

Megan's other passion is food, and her dare for me is to bake a She Dares themed cake. The last time I attempted to bake something it completely fell apart, so this should be fun!

If you'd like to join me in the dare, please send us your clips and tag @_shedares so we can share it back with the community. Also if you'd like me to do something, you can get in touch via Instagram @_shedares
