Hi, I’m Mary – an addicted runner since 2011!
Somehow between three part-time jobs, being full-time Mum to my one year old son Oscar, acting on my running club committee, blogging about running and keeping my house fairly presentable (just don’t open the door to the spare room!) I manage to run enough miles each week to stay happy!
Trail running and long distance running is where my heart lies. I ran a 50 mile ultra just 6 months after having a Csection last year and I’m currently training for my first 100 mile ultra marathon. To the other extreme I also regularly attend parkrun on a Saturday morning and love the community feel the events have. Already an official ‘parkrun tourist’, having run 20 events, I’m looking to increase that number even further this year. When my (now) home parkrun first began I made sure to run it, even though it fell just three days before I had my baby!
I would like to eventually join the 100 Marathon club. I’ve run 13 marathons so far and 11 ultras so I’m slowly heading in the right direction!
