Live life outside
Keep running and explore your surroundings
About me, the short version
I started running at the end of 2008 as a way to get fit and lose weight. I was soon hooked and by the start of 2010 I had booked my first race - the Great North Run half marathon which I ran in a time of 01:59:05.
In 2012, after moving to Suffolk, I joined Ipswich JAFFA Running Club and through running and training more, I have since knocked exactly 30 minutes off my half marathon time, running 01:29:05 in 2015. I became an active member of the running club and since joining I have been Course Director of the Ipswich Half Marathon over multiple years and the Race Director of the Ipswich Friday 5.
I love endurance running and I also love the trails, combine the two and that's probably my favourite type of run/race. I've completed 6 marathons including Yorkshire, London, Paris and one ultra marathon. I do a large percentage of my training runs off-road and enjoy documenting my runs through taking photos whenever possible.
My targets and aims for the near-future are to improve my road marathon PB, enter more ultras and increase the distance; 100km is the next target.
