Club Chairman & Website Admin/Designer
I started the 'Couch 2 5k' programme in 2017 for fitness and really haven't looked back since. I joined the local running club scene in 2018 and with it I improved rapidly as runner, pulling on experiences and advice of others! I love the community and support a running club can provide and group runs obviously makes a welcome change to those lonely solitary solo runs!
In April 2020 along with Nick S we came up with the concept of 'BADRAT', to bring something new to the road and trail running club scene in and around our hometown of Bridgwater (check out this website to discover what our values are and what we're looking to offer). I fulfil the role of Club Chairperson, website administrator and club brand designer.
Over the 3 years, I have ran a number of 5k/10k's, Half Marathons and a solitary Marathon, with 10k being my preferred distance. In 2019 I expanded into tackling trail running and although not particularly good at it, I love it for the unique settings and social experience that differs from conventional road racing/running.
My favourite races so far has probably been the Flying Fox Running Dark Woods night trail race and the Weston Super Half (Road) in 2019, the support and finishing on the Grand Pier was a really great experience.
