[p]Hi everyone,[/p][p]My story starts with a nomination to do the NHS 5k. So on the 19th of April in lockdown I decided to put on some lipstick for empowerment and to feel half human and to have a go. I did it and I haven't looked back since. I have run pretty much every day since. And every day the lipstick goes on. #thelippyrunner (follow me on Instagram) I was NOT a runner but have found a love for it that I don't want to give up. I wanted to find something for my mental health in lockdown and be more than mother, wife and teacher. I think a lot of women feel like that. This was something for me.[/p][p]I've had messages off women saying how they don't have the confidence to get out there but that this has inspired them to. This is amazing and makes me feel so proud. Anyone can. Support each other and we all can.[/p][p]I found this charity as I wanted to raise money for women's postnatal mental health and this is only one area but a very important area that isn't spoken about. We need to #getlippy and change the stigma. This is not embarrassing. We need to talk, help and support one another and this amazing charity does that. I'm so passionate about it.[/p][p]Action on Postpartum Psychosis[/p][p]https://www.app-network.org [/p][p]I want you to join in. This is a July fundraiser.

This can be an extra or your actual run. I want to encourage people to get running and not feel self conscious. I will also be doing a final run on 31st July and I will invite anyone to come and join.[/p][p]I will be running most days too and you can continue to follow my running journey too.[/p][p]I'm so thankful to be doing this so PLEASE support me and this amazing charity!![/p][p]Sian 💋 I am #thelippyrunner [/p]
