STATUS An ex-teacher who is now enjoying the FIRE approach to life.

About Me
A fifty-something retired teacher who took up running to improve the muscle tone in her legs after a hip resurfacing op in 2003. It all started with a 'Race for Life' 5k, that I took part in to raise money in memory of my Dad.

In 2005 I discovered the Fetcheveryone site, and thanks to the help and support of Fetchies, my running has moved on a bit since then.

Describe your ideal run, ride or swim.
My most brilliant run so far was when Mr Ness ran with me before breakfast while we were on holiday in Venice for my 50th birthday. We had St Mark’s Squares to ourselves and it was so peaceful! Any run would be ideal if I had Mr Ness beside me though
