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.
I’m running the @Marathon_Mcr in October & will be posting about my training [struggles] up to the event!
I’m already in week 3 of my training plan. Today felt like a scorcher with a grand high of 21 degrees. 🥵😅 pic.twitter.com/grSYQPCCVd
