When coaching and leading, I believe in a friendly, personable approach. I know what it is like to be new to running...and very much know what it is like to sign up for a race, only to realise you have no idea what you've let yourself in for! Please get in touch if you think I can help you achieve your next running goal.
I hold the Coach in Running Fitness and Leadership in Running Fitness Qualifications with British Athletics.
