ABOUT ME

From Club runner to Olympian, I've enjoyed every step of the way. There's been many hurdles to get over in my running career, but it's made me a stronger person. I am a P.E teacher, Athletics Coach and Sport Massage Therapist, although all part time at the moment as I have been pursuing my running career since 2009. I love animals and currently have 10 pets in my menagerie including 1 cat, 2 whippets, 2 goats and 5 alpacas. In the next life I think I will be a farmer!
