ABOUT ME

I absolutely love running anywhere with a jaw-dropping view. Unfortunately, this means I have to go uphill on a regular basis. I am slow going up and fast coming down. That's my style. As well as the occasional race setting off way too fast and regretting it later. I have combated this by going longer on my races so now have to do silly ultras that mean I have no choice but to plod along all day. It's all about views, fresh air, meeting people and going slightly insane during long races.

MY BIGGEST ACHIEVEMENTS

3 ultra marathons in 4 months having never ran further than a marathon before.
2nd placed non-elite at Beetham Tower Staircase Race.
Appeared on Ninja Warrior UK as a banana. As you do.
Finishing Thunder run with my legendary teammates without going insane from sleep deprivation.
