Describe your ideal run, ride or swim.
Run - a long run with clubmates on rolling country lanes - not too hilly - in warm but not hot sunshine with the option of a slightly faster finish. Rounded off with tea and cake somewhere afterwards

What's the biggest challenge that awaits you?
Continuing to improve to get my shorter distances back into and potentially beyond PB territory. I've made inroads but the hard work now really starts if I want to get back to my true best. Plus to have my strongest XC season next winter...

What's your favourite thing about Fetcheveryone?
Being able to look back easily at years worth of training and race data and gage where I'm at now based on what I've done in the past. Plus the familiarity of people who I'd call friends who I've met through here.

How do you pick yourself up when you need to?
Quality time with my boys to gain a proper sense of perspective and / or a good run in good company.

What’s the best bit of advice that you would give to new runners, bikers and swimmers?
Try to enjoy what you do. Don't let it become a chore or a grind. It's our hobby afterall. We all want to be the best we can but nobody else is comparing or judging, we're all too self-obsessed!!!

About Me

Discovered running in my mid-20's, best thing I ever did. Great for self confidence, fitness and weight loss (apart from when injured)!

Mum to 2 gorgeous boys (born in 2008/2011) and have had my best running years since becoming a Mum, perhaps due to an increased focus on juggling the balance between family, work and running and therefore making every session count.
Half marathons remain my preferred distance and I regularly do 5ks thanks to the awesomeness of parkrun. I also race the odd 10k and 5m usually as part of local leagues and whilst I will never be at the sharp end of the competition, I have been known to win the odd 2nd or 3rd in category in recent years.

Late 2015 / early 2016 was the pinnacle of my running 'career' and I set my lifetime best times across the board - whether or not any of these will be achievable in future who knows, but I train hard and smart with the slightly limited time I have whilst juggling family and full time work.

2018 is the year of the shorter stuff with my main aim being to get below 90 mins for HM again, bash out some sub-20 5ks and possibly to trouble my 10k PB. Marathons can wait for the time being...

My overall priority remains to enjoy running, to keep fit, healthy and injury-free and to make every session count.
