Race Reports

I ran my first road race in the summer of 2011. There I found my true passion.

Since then I have trained for and raced on more than fifteen occasions. These events have ranged from 5km to the marathon distance.

Every race presents different challenges outside the control of runners, such as the competition, course or weather. Fitness (including being injury-free), training and psychology are all factors that runners can determine before and use during a race. Each of my races has taught me valuable lessons about expectation, pacing and perseverance. This has meant I am now a more adaptable runner.

The memories of those moments will stay with me for the rest of my life, along with all my participation medals and t-shirts.
