I started running in 2011 doing a 10k with friends in 1 hour 20 mins. From there I entered the 2012 Sheffield half marathon, completing it in 1:48:48. 

Since then I have supported others with their running by helping to lead courses in Couch to 5k, 5k to 10k and I lead regular club runs for the Steel City Striders running club. I am also a regular pacer for the Sheffield half marathon and Sheffield 10k events. 

I have taken part, and still take part, in events from 5k to 50 miles on road, trail and cross country. This has led to PBs of 

5k 17.55

10k 36.46

Half marathon 1:23:26

I am also a qualified running coach. This has helped me understand my running better so I can get the most out of my training, and also lets me help others towards their goals which I find very rewarding.
