Professional expertise: UK Athletics running coach, Barefoot instructor

Running on the road, a muddy trail, with friends or just my own thoughts, I simply can’t get enough of it. It started as a race entry on a whim at the end of 2008 and has resulted in me diving head first in the world of running. There is something quite special about the running community and through my pursuit of PBs and new adventures, I have met an incredible array of people who never fail to make me smile, challenge and inspire me. As the miles clocked up, I became more interested in what is the best way to run. Having gained my qualification as an England Athletics coach and Barefoot instructor, I have been fortunate enough to train and work with numerous athletes at various stages in their running careers, enabling me to explore this. As a coach I always aim to look at how we can refine our technique to make us stronger, faster and injury free. I love to be able to pass on what I have learnt to other runners, who in turn can then improve their performance and surpass their expectations.
