I am an enthusiastic, charismatic, and creative motivator who loves running – the freedom it brings, the social connections it opens up, and the life changes it can bring about.

Here are a few interests of mine, along with some areas I have been involved with in the past and currently. Click on the links to find out more.

Want to know how I started running? 

Do you want to read an uplifting story about how a non-runner took part in a Christmas fun run and started a journey that led him to become a marathon runner? This is the story of How A Fat Sweaty Santa Became A Marathon Runner. Available on Amazon for £1.99.

Running

That’s right – I run. Sometimes a lot. Sometimes a little. Sometimes I do well. Sometimes I just get by. But overall, I run. I am a runner. I love the social aspect of running, being part of a group of like-minded people keeping active.

I have a saying ‘Smiles Through The Miles’ and I live by this. I make sure that I put the enjoyment of running before competitiveness or anything serious! That doesn’t mean that I haven’t achieved anything – not by a long shot. It just means that I have a smile on my face when I am doing it!

Partnerships

I enjoy building partnerships with companies and organisations where I can. By connecting with businesses, charities, brands, or causes that I support, my authentic recommendation about them helps promote what they are doing and also helps promote my involvement too. 

Here is a blog post I wrote about partnerships that I have been involved with. If you’re interested in working with me as a brand ambassador, or as a partner or representative, please get in touch

Blogging

I blog. Sometimes often. Sometimes less often. Sometimes I write in the short form for social media and sometimes I write in long-form for my blog or for running publications or running websites. 

We all have experiences that we can learn from, or where others can learn from when we share them. I am told that my personality comes across in my writing which is great to hear as it is important to be yourself at all times, and this is true also when writing for others.

Career

I work in the NHS in a Data Liaison team. This involves me being a listener, a problem-solver, a sign-poster towards help, an instigator of change, and someone who most importantly gets things done!

Working with stakeholders and partners is enjoyable as it enables me to learn more and more about the complex and interesting world of health service data.

Rugby League

I spent ten years involved with amateur rugby league, both in the West Midlands, and then back in the heartlands of the sport in West Yorkshire, prior to me taking up running as my main hobby/sport.
