STRIVING TO BE PHYSICALLY FIT AND MENTALLY FIT.
A bit about me
Running has inspired me during some of my darkest times, and motivated me to challenge myself more than I though possible. Since I took up running in 2012 I’ve run three marathons and countless shorter distances, made some amazing friends, upturned my life and never looked back. Heading out on my first run was a daunting moment. I remember tentatively running around back streets after dark so no one would see me. Thank goodness I did! Facing that fear has empowered me endlessly. I passionately believe that if I can find something in movement then everyone can!
In September 2018 I quit my job in the city and started a PhD looking at women in ultra running. I joke that when I run I’m technically studying! I’m fascinated by what this sport offers women and how powerful adventure can be. I know from my own experiences it can be life changing.
If I’m not running (or studying running) I can be found dashing around town on Doris my bike, practicing yoga or having an adventure either at home or away.
To have adventures and live a full life.
Kitchen equipment I couldn’t live without
This made me laugh! I am not a cook, but I do love toast and am very attached to my Dulite toaster!
Finding balance and realise I can’t always do all of the things all of the time.
