Ambassador

Like all great stories my running journey started in the pub with friends. The idea that we should run a half marathon to get in shape and lose the excess weight that life had given us.
12 years later and im competed in races all over europe from 1 mile events to parkrun to marathons, ultras and Ironman triathlon.
One of the most important factors for keeping the journey alive and fresh are the people that its brought into my life, and more recently the online running community.
Of a weekend i can be found normally at a parkrun tourist destination, running with friends, pacing or trying to smash out a session on my own.
My go to running shoe is the Brooks Glycerin.
My current goals are to reach a GFA marathon time and complete the World Marathon Majors.
