Pete is a keen runner and ran a half-marathon the day before Give and Gain week, where he directed 5 back-to-back Games festivals; a test of strength and endurance in itself. Read below some wise words from our star event director on the benefits of keeping fit:
“No matter what I have done I always try to keep active. I run whenever I have time and when I can motivate my friends we play basketball in an East London park on Saturday mornings. The running indulges my competitive side – setting a time and trying to beat it; the sport of basketball aims more at the social side.
I think if you look at all the positive things you can get from an active life, apart from the physical benefits, you can see why it’s so important to people. I find sports to be very fun because I can socialise and be competitive. Cheesy, I know, but I think being active makes you happier.”
