Who am I

I started running in my late 20’s, after getting out of breath going up some stairs at work (no joke, ask me the story!). I gave up smoking and started running, just to the end of the road to start, and then further. Since then I’ve run Great Manchester Run, Great North Run, New York marathon, London marathon, Lakeland50 and the Marathon des Sables.

I’m a UK Athletics Coach in Running Fitness and Athletics Coach, Triathlon England level 1 coach, Trainee Mountain Leader and hold Emergency Care in Remote Environments.

I’ve lived in the Lakes nearly all of my life, and am passionate about keeping people active in the great outdoors. I also love distracting people with all sorts of geekery to keep them moving.
