What I Do

I got told to have three hobbies, one that keeps you fit (Running or Cycling), one that helps you relax (Yoga or Reading) and one that makes you money (Knitting or Baking). So on any given day I do one from each group just to keep me rounded, sane and interesting. I have a lot of energy so need to always be creating or learning something, I am forever being told to slow down. I do have a 9-5 job where I play with statistics and spreadsheets. Instagram - @e.runs.this

Best Race

Maverick Snowdon for so many reasons; Firstly, It was in Wales and having lived here for 7 years I am completely in love with the country. Secondly, It was the most challenging event I have done to date and gave me a taste of what is to come. thirdly, we were blessed with amazing weather. And lastly, the sprinkles on top of the icing, I was first lady home.

Plans For This Year

Explore the UK on two feet, starting with a run round the Isle of Wight, adventures in the Brecon Beacons and completing the full South Downs Way. The London Marathon is in the mix for a bit of speed round the city. But the moto for 2018 is ‘memories not medals’. 

Favourite Running Kit

Inov8 Soft Shell Jacket, it is brilliant and even has sleeves long enough for my lanky arms. Am a huge fan of buffs and wear up to three at a time to keep the chill out. Does Peanut butter count as Kit? I believe it does, as I couldn’t run without it!
