About Me

Half marathon plodder turned ultra runner.I did at least a half marathon a month between April 2009 and January 2013 when my intended race was cancelled due to the snow. I still do them, although with a bit less OCD, and I have now done over 70 half marathons. I have coped with them while boiled (St Albans, Humber Bridge and Ufdance), drenched (Barns Green and Sussex Beacon - nice weather Sussex!), battered by the wind (Four Villages), both battered by the wind and drenched (Shakespeare), fogged up (St Neots, Seaford), and frozen (Keyworth and Polar Night). After shedding a couple of buckets of lard that I had been carrying around about my person for several years I achieved the elusive sub-2 half marathon in September 2009 and I have been chipping away at this pb ever since, achieving a sub 1:40 at Gosport in 2013. The half marathon has historically been the favoured distance but in recent years I have been focusing on improving my marathon time and getting a GFA time for London and a Boston qualifying time, as well as training hard for the best race ever, Comrades. I have now done over 40 marathons.5km races hurt a bit too much so I mostly volunteer at Parkrun - I'm often the timer at Braunstone. Race goal for 2015 is a sub 9 Comrades, which I didn't manage in 2014. I effectively sacrificed it for a sub 3:30 marathon but I'm proud of that, so can't complain. In 2014 I also got to run the Boston Marathon, which was ace, and won a prize in the county road race league.Races that I would like to do, in no particular order: Jungfrau Marathon, Mont Ventoux Half Marathon, the Blaydon Race, Beirut Marathon, Ooredoo Marathon, Funchal Marathon, Pyongyang Marathon, Soweto Marathon, Yonkers Marathon. I designed the chameleon icon. My Comrades #20607 but I'm not after a Green Number. 2nd on the Marathon Talk podium during Episode #154. Based in Leicester and Nottingham. Teetotal and proud to be vegan.Things that I have won when speedy people have not turned up: 1st lady, Braunstone Parkrun #1, 2nd lady, Beacon Hill trail race 2011; 1st FV40 and 9th lady, Blackpool Marathon 2012; 1st lady, Leicester Winter 5km Series Race #1 2013, 3rd lady, Leicester Winter 5km Series Race #2 2013, 3rd lady, Leicester Summer 5km Series Race #1 2012 3rd lady, Christmas Enigma marathon #1, 4th lady, Stort 30 2013, 4th lady, Huddersfield Marathon 2014, 4th lady, Wakefield Marathon 2014, 6th lady, Cheltenham Circular Challenge 2013, 9th lady, Belvoir Challenge 26 2013, 10th lady, Cambridge Boundary Run 26.2 2013, 10th lady, Bolton Hill Marathon 2013, 10th lady and 49th overall, Wales Marathon 2013, 10th lady and 1st FV35-44, Riverbank Notts AC 5 mile 2013, 2nd lady and 20th overall, Charnwood Marathon 2013, Fastest lady, A Coventry Way Challenge, 40 miles, 2013. 1st lady, Sheffield Castle parkrun #59, 4th FV40 Leicestershire Road Race Summer League 2014. 1st FV40 Market Harborough Half Marathon 2015, 4th lady, Hinckley Town Centre 5km 2015, 4th FV40 and 19th lady, Potteries Marathon 2015, 1st lady Enigma Shaken But Not Stirred Half Marathon 2015. 3rd FV 40 Leicestershire Road Race Winter League 2015; 2nd FV40 Leicestershire Road Race Summer League 2015.
