ABOUT ME

This year I have completed my first ever marathon and finished Ironman UK. I have completed both of these within 20 months of being in remission from Leukaemia. I was diagnosed in my second year of university at the age of 20. I had 7 months of intense treatment including 4 cycles of chemotherapy. Luckily I have come out the other side and have a new outlook on life. I want to push my body and mind to the limits. I now know how much the body and mind can take.

I know I can run a sub 3:30:00 marathon. If I pace myself right and use the correct nutrition I can do it. Do I dare to believe I can qualify for the world championships in Kona for Ironman? We will have to wait and see
