Claire gave up drinking in preparation for some big adventures

Claire Robinson, 42, from Middlesbrough, has given up drinking while training for both the Great North Run 2017 and trekking Mount Kilimanjaro, in Tanzania, in October 2017. Claire always enjoyed social drinking and used to unwind after work most nights with a couple of glasses of wine while cooking dinner. After a visit to her GP, she realised how much she was drinking and it really hit home. After giving up booze, Claire feels a lot brighter and is looking forward to the challenges ahead!
