Raced my 1st Half Marathon in 2008 (Worksop) after training through the summer, gave up till the next summer and raced it again. Did my 1st Marathon (Amsterdam) in 2011, followed by Berlin in 2012 & 13 (my PB course) and others have followed. I joined Grantham Running Club in the summer of 2012 and obtained my Leadership In Running Fitness in 2013 and am currently working towards my Coach In Running Fitness. I went onto the club committee in 2013 and am still on it. I have been the Race Director of the clubs Grantham Cup (1 year) and Summer Solstice (3 years - 2013 - 2016) which grew to 850 entrants in 2016.
I am also actively involved in my villages Football Club, as the Welfare Officer and Charter Standard Coordinator, since 2005, the club has over 20 teams and 60 volunteers.
