Started running in March 2012 and was 5 1/2 stone overweight.
Couldn't run for more than 10 minutes and a mile loop was impossible.
Ran a 100 miler in May 2017.... always believe..!!
Completed many races but my favourite experiences are:
London Marathon 2013, Berlin Marathon 2014, Paris Marathon 2015, Snowdonia Marathon 2016, Thunder Run 2014/2015/2016/2017
Imber Ultra 31mile 2014, Evesham Ultra 47mile 2014, Railway Ultra 36mile 2015, Run To The Castle 2015, Millennium Way 2016/2017,
The Long Good Friday 51mile 2017, The Westcountry Ultra 100mile 2017
But.... of everything I love parkrun and being Arrow Valley Event Director. I have the event to thank for introducing me to running friends, inspirational people & leading me on a path towards coaching others. Will hit 200 runs in Oct 2017 which is a long journey from that first 1 mile loop around the back of my house..!!
