My running journey started 3 years ago as a way to get fit. I had no intention to run more than 10km to begin with but I quickly became addicted to running. After running the Brighton 10km in 2018 I signed up for the Marathon the following year at the event village. I ran 12 half marathons in 2018 and completed my first marathon in Brighton in April 2019 followed by my second in Berlin in September 2019.

Over the years I have ran with many running clubs including Adidas Runners London, New Balance, Tenzing Clean Air Run Club. I have made so many friends and love the running community. Nothing beats the support and motivation everyone has for eachother.

I was meant to complete my 3rd marathon in Manchester last year but that was postponed to October this year and project sub 4 hours is well and truly on.

Running is my passion and so after I completed the Leadership in Running Fitness course at the end of 2019, I started my own running club, Croydon Meerkat Runners. Bringing people together to get active and have fun while at it 😊
