What does running mean to you:
Running for me is freedom, It is a time for me to be on my own, in my own space – regardless if I am running my own or with other people. I always find a sense of presentness, creative space, inspirational space and with that gratitude.
Favourite place to run:
My favourite place to run is anywhere outside in nature. Mainly in nature, surrounded by trees, water, grass, woods. But I also like running in new places as well – to bring in that creativity and inspiration into my run.
Your best running memory:
My best running memory is a 24 hour run, which was 26 miles in 24 hours, for Run Grateful, with Mark White. We started with 3K on the first hour and then a mile every hour after that, for 24 hours. That was the best one because I met the most amazing people, friends, that I now feel like it’s a close-knit family between us, and this has just developed meeting lots of new people, new friends, great community.
Why does running matter?
Running matters to me because it’s made me realise who I am and where I want to be, where I’m going. If I didn’t run I feel I would’ve left a lot me behind and for me it’s just helped me navigate different paths leading onto different journeys, challenges and adventures.
Running plans for the future:
My running plans for the next year ahead of us are running my first 10K race, for cancer research which will be in London, February. Prior to that I’m running 200 K. which is the equivalent to 4 1/ 2 marathons and that will take me up to the 11th of January. Possibly I’d like to take part in my first half marathon will see this year and definitely Goggins challenge again. And hopefully a Run Grateful event.
