Hello there, and welcome to Psycho Wyco, your new stop for all your running needs!
I’m Suzie, and I’m Lizzie. That’s right; it’s double trouble here. We are two sisters who share DNA and a love for running. We created this site to empower others to grab their trainers and head for a run. Let’s tell you a bit more about ourselves.
Suzie here, the oldest and wisest of the two! I am a married mother with two small children and a cheeky cat, Milo. I started running after I had my second child as a way to shift some baby weight. At first, I hated it. No, I would have to drag myself down the street, moaning under my breath. It took a while, but the love of running came.
Now I can chase after my children and feel fitter and healthier than ever before! But while I was searching for new trainers or a good running route, many reviews and sites seemed tailored to men. Not only did it annoy me, but it made me wonder, is there a gap in the market?
I wanted to create a safe space online that was inclusive to everyone, so I convinced fitness fanatic, Lizzie to join me and create Psycho Wyco to empower others to feel comfortable and confident about running.
Hey guys, I’m Lizzie. I’m not as great with words as Suzie, so I’ll keep it brief. I work in a local gym teaching some fitness classes, aerobics, Zumba, that sort of thing. But my one true love is running (and my partner, obvs!). I’ve competed in half-marathons and had to drag Suzie on a few of her evening runs, and there’s nothing quite like that adrenaline rush for me.
When Suzie first asked if I wanted to create this site, I was shocked that she hadn’t found a great running community and vowed to change that. So here we are, bringing you all you need to know about running. As Suzie said, this is a safe space, so whether you are a seasoned runner or a beginner, come on in; we are here to help!
