Moving to Sheffield from down south a few years ago I was amazed how much more the world had to offer in terms of hills, mud and rocks. Once I’d got over the shock of my first fell race I kept coming back for more to see if I could manage to run up more of the hills and conquer my fear of coming back down them. I love running because of the variety of different races, it’s impossible to get bored and it also gives you a great excuse to eat cake. Looking forward to training with Team Accelerate this year – hoping to get faster, have plenty of fun, and aim for some podium finishes (with a bit of luck).

Best result: 3rd female in Grindleford Gallop, 2013
Most pleasing result: 1h30 in Sheffield half marathon in 2013 (running all the way with a bleeding leg following a close encounter with a rock at a fell race the week before)
