Bio

In the summer of 2012 I took to the treadmill to run 5km in an effort to improve my fitness for the upcoming football season, however it wasn’t long before I was bitten by the running bug and I switched football boots for running shoes and have never looked back.

Starting with the usual 5km and 10km runs, I booked myself a place in the Bupa GSR in 2012 as a target and from then my love of running has grown and grown. I would now consider myself an Ultra-Runner, and Marathon fan who is always looking for the next big challenge to test myself.

I love healthy food, and embrace an active lifestyle alongside my running and yet I have a distinct weakness for cake!!

I am an Ambassador for XMiles UK and Squirrels Nut Butter UK
