I discovered a love of running in my late thirties/early forties, having never participated in any competitive sport before. I joined the Harriers in 2007, to run with others and support my training for races. I enjoy the social side of the club as well as the push it has given me on speed and distance training.
My favourite races are half-marathons (particularly Bath), the Great South run, and the Hanney 5 – a friendly club race. My aim for 2017 is to beat last year’s half-marathon time (1hr 52mins) and also climb Kilimanjaro, without injuring myself!
