Q. Why did you join the club?

A. I would like to be in a position to motivate other runners, help them reach their targets whilst reducing the incidence of running injuries.

Q. When do we typically see you at training?

A.  Tuesdays in Group 4, Thursday speed work sessions, Saturday mornings at the track and a long run on Sundays!

Q. What are your aims for your running and/or coaching?

Q. Tell us something about you that other Spartans will not know!
