What is one of your proudest moments?
Running the London Marathon! Before the London Marathon, I did run, but never really followed a plan, I would say I was more a fair weather runner, I would go out when I felt like it and would just do sessions here and there. But this all changed when I found out I got a place in the marathon, I knew I wouldn't be able to just 'wing it' - so for the first time ever, I got a running plan! I followed that plan to the letter, whether it was raining, cold or dark, if my plan said run, I would run! Everyone thinks the marathon is the main challenge, but its actually the 3-4 months leading up to it that is the biggest challenge, the race is just the icing on the cake! I felt so many emotions during that race, but the one that stuck with me after was pride. I was so proud of myself that I set myself a goal, trained hard for it and achieved it on the day! And now I get to do it all again this year, I can't wait!
