• Age: 23
  • Years Running: 2
  • Favourite race: London marathon 2013, the atmosphere was fantastic and I never thought I'd be able to run a half marathon let alone a full one! Despite poor training due to injury I managed it and raised £1300 for NSPCC.
  • Least Favourite Race: Sleaford half marathon 2013, it was cold, snowing and my IT band hurt so much!
  • Why did you start running? In my third year if uni I began running to raise money for Great Ormond Street running London 10k, I loved racing so much I carried on..
  • Injuries received? IT band syndrome has thankfully cleared up and I suffer from plantar fasciatis in my feet.
  • Furthest Distance ran? One Marathon.
  • Trainers worn: saucony
  • Favourite running kit? Compression socks...they are amazing!
  • Top tip from your experience: Recently I have found that using another competitor for a good pace during a race, this helped me in Stanwick lakes half and Nene Valley 10m to keep a good pace rather than starting too fast.
  • How many miles do you run per week? Depends on work and other commitments, but currently 30 miles a week.
  • Other hobbies? I like the cinema and shopping obviously! I love spinning classes and going to the gym as many of my friends also go.
