As a very late entrant into the world of running following sporting activities of squash and cycling it didn’t take long to realize what was being missed. The first race Carlton London Run (10km) in 2001 became a life changer. A lot of training any many more races followed but not much improvement. It took 5 years to get enough courage to join a running club! With structured training and peers to run with the improvements started. Now there is significant experience to fall back on from cross country, 5km to marathons. Notable achievements have included age category wins across all distances including Virgin London Marathon, Great North Run and representing England Masters in both half marathon and 10km.
With the passion for running, wanting to improve and help others, coaching was the obvious route to follow. After a lot of hard work the following coaching qualifications have been achieved:

UKA Athletics Coach
