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 community, or a group of like-minded people.

I have a saying ‘Smiles Through The Miles’ and live by this. I make sure I put the enjoyment of running before competitiveness or anything serious! That doesn’t mean 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.

TOP TIP – read my running blog posts.


I enjoy building partnerships with companies and organisations where I can. By connecting with businesses, charities, brands, or causes that I support and authentically recommending them it helps promote what they are doing and also for me too.

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 others can learn from when shared. I am told my personality comes across in my writing which is good as it is important to be yourself at all times, and this is true also when writing for others.

TOP TIP – read my blog.


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