About me

I first discovered running as a means of releasing exam-related stress, and almost immediately fell in love with the world of endurance sports. In the past, I represented my county, Suffolk, as a youth athlete. I run my first Marathon (2:56 at Valencia Marathon in 2017). I Hold an honours degree in Applied Sport, Health & Exercise Science and a personal trainer qualification and combine my practical training experience and knowledge to share with the run community.

My biggest achievements

My greatest achievement was running my first marathon in under 3 hours, I didn't train as well as I should have done for it which made it even greater! -Representing my county in XC -County champion (2012) for 100m, 400m and 10k. - Ranked 33rd in my age in the UK for my Valencia Marathon time in 2017.
