After been a self confessed couch potato pretty much all of my adult life! I had a lightbulb moment age 38 to start running! I mean I didn’t really know what it entailed apart from wearing trainers and moving a bit faster than walking! One evening in May 2013 my running journey began. After the initial 6 week trail period and when I could run a mile without stopping I was hooked! I entered GNR to raise money for charity in 2014 which was the most awesome experience ever! I then moved into London Marathon the following year and that’s were my passion for long distance running began. Since then I have completed 14 marathons and 1 ultra marathon both a mix of road and trail runs. Roll on 8 years later it’s part of my life and running gives me so much and I have met amazing people who now I call friends. I love to travel and one of my favorite trail marathons is a white star running event at Larmer Tree Gardens and amazing course and was also the venue for our wedding in 2012!
With a mix of local trail runs which I do every year which are always 26 miles plus! The. Freedom of trail running and the no ego that comes with it makes the run an awesome experience
