Have a little say about you?

As I mentioned earlier, in my spare time you will probably find me on the top of a mountain or running.

I got motivated to improve my fitness having reached the summit of the first 4000m mountain in Switzerland during 2018.

I started running in October 2018, following the 'Couch to 5K' scheme (on a hidden back lane!), and lost over 4 stones as a result. Since then, I've walked the 4,000m mountain peaks of the Atlas, completed 47 of the Munros, and ran my first half marathon in under two hours.

If anyone is hesitant about taking the first step, I have one message: ‘Go for it! It will be one of the best decisions you will ever make’.
