Tell us a bit about you

I’m a mum of 3 small children.  I live in Probus and I work at the local school.  Running is my escape and I have to make sure I use every possible opportunity to get out and train.  I can often be found pushing the buggy with my 2 year old along the quiet, undulating country lanes, or if I’m on my own, I love nothing more than getting out on the coast path and notching up a fair few miles.

What are your best achievements to date?

Represented Great Britain at IAU World Trail Championships (July 2013), UTMB CCC 8th lady (1st British) (August 2013), Represented England at Anglo Celtic Plate 100km, 2nd lady (July 2012 & April 2013), Dartmoor Discovery 32 miles 1st lady (June 2012 and 2013), Classic Quarter 44 miles 1st lady (June 2012), Beacons Ultra 46 miles 1st lady (November 2012) Winner Grad Union Canal Race 2014
