Run Leader & Welfare Officer

I started running in August 2018 at the age of 50, when a walking friend told me about Couch to 5k. I subsequently moved on to a 10k plan, before joining the Eagles in early 2019, and ran my first event, a 10 mile Trail, in March.

Encouraged by my Eagle running buddies, I have since run 9 Trail Marathons, 3 Ultras (with more to come) and many shorter Trail Events and ventured onto the road for the Inaugural Rob Burrow Leeds Marathon. Over the last few months, I have also become a bit of a parkrun (and cake!) tourist. 

I love to support others and have volunteered and been a Tailrunner at events from 5k to Ultra.  Seeing others achieve their goals gives me as much enjoyment as running myself.
