I started running from a very early age. My first memory of running was from when I was about 7 years old and I was running around the stadium of a local rugby club as part of a charity run with my Uncle and cousins. The idea was to run as many laps of the ground as possible and I remember being very disappointed when I had to stop. I had the same feeling a few years later when I ran my first cross country. Once I crossed the finish line of the girls race, I went back out and ran with the boys in their race. I just loved to run.
I dipped in and out of competitive running throughout high school and Uni but I always ran in a non-competitive sense; it had become a way of life for me and was just something that I did. It wasn’t until a few years ago that I started to get a bit more competitive with my running again and it has now become a huge part of my life.
With so many trail runs, ultra marathons, alpine adventures, road races, and desert runs popping up on the international running calander, I’ve created a personal bucket list of events and races that I’d like to do. This blog is a way for me to rant about all things running and to keep myself moving forward with the hope of one day ticking off as many adventures on my bucket list as possible!
