Joe Wicks moves Scots cancer fighter to tears in Glasgow after meeting her out running

Joe Wicks moved a Scots cancer fighter to tears on the streets of Glasgow after he met her while out running.

The Body Coach, who released his first ever children’s book on fitness called The Burpee Bears, is on an eight day whistle-stop tour of the UK, and had been staying at the Kimpton Blythswood Square Hotel when he decided to go on an early morning run.

After asking punters if they’d like to join him he ended up starting outside the nearby Slug and Lettuce before taking in the local streets during a 5k run.

And one of the runners who joined him was a 60-year-old local woman called Anne who had just finished her last course of chemotherapy.

While he was still running, a thrilled Joe told his fans on social media: “There’s a woman here I want to introduce to you. She started exercising at 56 years old, doing the ninety day plan.

“She had cancer and just finished her chemo this year and she’s out here running a 5k. It’s amazing.

“It just goes to show anyone can do anything in their life with the right mind set. We are all different fitness levels and ages, c’mon Glasgow.”

Joe then stopped his run and reintroduced Anne, saying: ‘I bumped into this lovely woman Anne who started exercising four years ago. She is sixty now and this year she finished chemotherapy. What an amazing human being.

“She’s out there running 5k, she’s beating me and is an inspiration. It just goes to show when you have that belief in yourself and stay determined you can do anything in life.

“What a fighter, she turned up and overcame that final climb all by herself. Thats a hero in my eyes.”

Anne who was more than a tad embarrassed and emotional from the praise, said “stop it, you’ll make me cry” before wiping her eyes.
