Why invest in me?
Running saved me. It truly did. I was going through a really difficult time when I took to running as a way to get out of the house. I soon realized I was still able to run like I did when I was a country runner. at school Soon I plucked enough courage to take my newly acquired love for running to the test. I won a few local races, been on the podium a few times and now live and breathe running. As I had to take time off from an injury, I began to study running more and love to coach to help others improve their running. Take a look at some cool footage taken at Foxtrail in 2016, you'll see I'm gracefully accepting my medal covered in fluorescent paint. who said races are boring!
