I’m living in Reading but I’ve spent most of my life in Timaru, New Zealand. For me, running is mentally rewarding and I love the thrill of finishing a long run which usually involves a good cafe!

When I ran my first long-distance event (a half-marathon) back in 2015, I never expected it to be such a transformative experience. After the event, I felt like I could achieve anything and I started dabbling in a few more races. Since then I’ve completed a couple of duathlons, several half marathons and a marathon.

Like a lot of other people, I started running a lot more during lockdown to try to maintain wellness both physically and mentally. I usually run a few times a week and on days I’m not running, I’m often cycling.
