When did you join Daventry Road Runners?

I joined Daventry Road Runners in May 2019.

Why did you start running?

I ran cross country and enjoyed athletics at school, but had a lazy period during my 20's and 30's where I just trained at the gym and learnt boxing, which I really enjoyed! I started from scratch in 2018 doing a 'Couch to 5K' and the rest is history.

What is you biggest achievement(s) so far?

Running the Virgin London marathon in 2019 and raising over £13,000 for Myton Hospices, which is where both my in-laws were cared for during the latter stages of their terminal cancer diagnosis.

Why did you decide to join Daventry Road Runners?

The wonderful Tee paced me at Daventry parkrun and conned me into joining, haha!

What race would you love to do, that you haven't run yet?

I would love to have a go at a Tough Mudder or maybe the Snowdon Marathon.
