Run Leader

Why Orchard Eagles Running Club?
I love the inclusivity and the diversity that the running club provides irrespective of a person’s ability

Why did you start running?
I started running in July 2014 as my best friend had started running and said how enjoyable it was. I’d put on some weight so thought I’d give it a go.

Do you have a favourite event?
Well I think my favourite events are the Hardmoors trail events of which I’ve completed the 26.2 series of half marathons.

What is your proudest running achievement?
I would have to say that it would have to be my first marathon at Manchester in 2017.

What is your day job?
I am a manager in the NHS with a nursing background.

Do you have a favourite quote?
Yes! “Breathe and believe!”

Do you have any other hobbies besides running?
I frequently attend CrossFit: I firmly believe that this is a huge benefit to my running. I also thoroughly enjoy hiking and am gradually attempting to walk all of the Wainwright’s.
