I hail from Northern Ireland, and started running properly in 2010, which was over a decade ago, yet feels like not so long. Professionally I work as a Software Engineer for a major hard drive manufacturer.
I’ve been lucky in my running career to hit all my running goals, which included:
One mile in under 6 minutes.
5k in under 21 minutes.
10k in under 45 minutes.
Half marathon in under 100 minutes.
Marathon in under 4 hours.
Complete every parkrun in Northern Ireland.
Since then, I have focused on enjoying my running and trying to reap the health benefits of it. Avid parkrunner slowing working my way towards the coveted blue 500 t-shirt, while also volunteering to help keep the event going and free to attend. More recently, on March 19th 2020 I started a running streak (although didn’t know it at the time) when I was placed into lockdown. Running has allowed me to visit so many different places, meet lots of interesting new people and become fitter, all while having fun. Like, who could complain about that?!

A few years back I went on a running holiday (I didn't know those two words could exist in together in the same sentence either). The goal of the holiday was to run UP the 12km climb of Alpe d'Huez in France. An incredible run and experience.
