Hello everyone

West Bromwich born and bred. And of course a massive West Bromwich Albion fan. Follow many other sports including Formula One, Cricket and Athletics. Currently working in PR/Communications and loving it.

I took up running in March 2015 and thought why not give it a go. Never did I think I would get the running bug and enjoy it. It really is a great stress reliever and am enjoying my running.

Completed my first full marathon in September 2016 at the Wolverhampton Marathon. Yes I was in pain come the end of the race but knowing I completed it was a fine achievement and one of the best days of my life. Not forgetting I ran 540 miles for Children in Need in 2016 and raised over £1,200.

I have only just gone and signed up to four full marathons in 2017. What am I thinking? Still if you want something in life, you have to work for it and never give up.

I have never given up in life and am proud of what I have achieved.
