Professional expertise: England Athletics Leader in Running Fitness

After years of lethargy I begrudgingly signed up to a 5k in 2006 and never looked back. Since that time I’ve run everything from a 5k to an ultra-marathon. Initially I trained by myself but after taking on my first marathon I realised I needed more support and joined Greenwich Runners. It is such a supportive group and I have gained so much in terms of becoming a better, more confident runner – I have also made many great friends.

I never had much confidence when it came to sports at school but running has given me so much and I wanted to use my experience to help people get started. I took the England Athletics’ Leader in Running Fitness Course in early 2020 and since then I have been lucky enough to help people get started on their running journey.
