I started running in 2018 as a new challenge; something brand new to me.
In February 2019 I decided to take this to a competitive level through both local and virtual clubs, and ran my first race as a half marathon in Taunton – straight in at the deep end.
Since then, I have run several other half marathons on road, but have also discovered trail running and thoroughly enjoy it! The challenge of events where there are unexpected conditions, hills, roots, rocks, mud, and humorous signs is hard to resist!
I joined BADRAT in April 2020 as part of the club training team.
To date my favourite event has been Flying Fox’s Run From The Romans event – a trail, night race around Ham Hill hillfort, closely followed by their Dark Woods race at our local Great Woods.
