I started out as a runner. Then, over the following 20 years, I dedicated a lot of time to a plethora of other sports. Then in 2013 I returned to running. Knowing little about ultrarunning, I was initially inspired by books, but later by the people I have met and the places it has taken me. I love the simplicity of running, the feeling of being connected to nature and the way of life it encourages me to have.

I am based on the edge of the beautiful Peak District in England. When Iā€™m not out running in the hills I work as junior doctor specialising in paediatrics. I hope you enjoy following my journey here.
