Thanks for stopping by at my corner of the internet where I blog about running, racing, training and everything in between. I’m just a little lass from Lancashire that put on some running shoes in early 2012 and never looked back. I made a New Year’s resolution to complete the Great North Run in a bid to get a bit fitter and to raise some money for charity. To help me train, I started to attend Burnley’s parkrun and I found it really motivating to see my finish times tumble down.
It was here that I started chatting to some members of a local running club, the mighty Trawden A.C. I was invited to try one of their training sessions the following Monday and I signed up immediately. They are a thriving and sociable club and there is no better feeling in the world when I cross the finish line of a tough race with all of my fellow humbugs cheering me in.
With the support and guidance of my new found clubmates, I’ve really enjoyed trying a variety of different races, including road, fell, trail, relays and cross countrys. I’ve well and truly been bitten by the running bug and I’m looking to infect as many people with it as possible!
