After a long period in the running wilderness (in which I spent time as a diving (not driving) instructor and a world champion at some random sport in the middle east), I returned to the sport in 2016, running the Edinburgh Marathon in 3h 26, and have then embarked upon a personal journey to be the best I could possibly be.
Working with Steve as my coach, I ran a succession of marathon PBs, always looking to build and develop what we did before, with the latest one in Dec 2020 of 2h 19m 17s. In that time, I enjoyed plotting my own progress so much I also developed my coaching skills as British Athletics running coach and have been working as a coach with The Milestone Pursuit since 2019.
In my coaching, I believe in the untapped potential of people of all ages, and being a bit of a data geek, I often find myself delving deep into my athlete’s data set, and I am fully versed in the use of Power as a training and racing data set that can drive improved performance.
I grew up in Kent, where I showed some promise in the sport, before then spending my 20s and 30s in various locations around the world. I settled in East London for a while, but I am now based in Edinburgh, where I am enjoying lots of out and back long run along the beautiful but blustery coastline”
