Hi, my name is Rachel, and I am a Community Fundraising Manager at the charity Hearing Dogs for Deaf People and alongside this I am a keen runner, walker and most recently a strength trainer.

On Christmas Day 2018 the life I had known changed forever. The man who I loved and trusted had been cheating on me for 6 months. I didn’t see it coming, and it took me to a mentally dark place.

That is when I found running. On a day when everything felt too much, I decided to try running. I had always enjoyed the gym, but the thought of running instantly scared me as I didn’t think I would be able to do it. However, there was something about being outside, being free and just being able to process things in my mind which I loved.

I then signed up to couch 2 5k and once I completed that there was no going back. I moved on to doing the Vitality 10k, quite a few half marathons and most recently completed the London Marathon in October 2022 which was an absolute dream. Running has changed my life for the better, I now have a new partner and we live in a beautiful end of terrace in the countryside with our Labrador Yianis who is a complete joy. I am now part of the Brooks Run Happy Team for the UK and have made some lovely friends through this as well as in the running community itself. I am happier than I have ever been, and I really owe so much to running. It really is the most incredible and life changing sport.

As running is such a huge part of my life, I spent some time looking into what would be best to help me on my journey. I then came across Kollo after researching the benefits of collagen for runners and especially now that I am also incorporating strength training into my routine.

Collagen supports my tendons and ligaments and is a great way to ensure that I can prevent injury, especially as I am always training towards a new goal. If there ever was any issue, collagen can help to speed up recovery and there has also been studies to show that joint pain can be reduced. Not only is collagen something I wanted to include for running, I also have wanted to improve my hair and nails and I have already noticed a significant difference in them.

When it came to finding the right collagen, Kollo just seemed like the choice. I love the fact that I can have a sachet with water each day and it tastes good. Being active is everything to me, I find that exercise and just moving my body makes me feel incredible, so I like to ensure I find things to keep me moving, and Kollo is definitely helping me. I find it so easy to incorporate Kollo into my routine, and I am looking forward to seeing where this journey takes me.
