What event are your training for and what is your goal?
I’m training for the Mountain Run, C2C, Feb 2018.

What it is your motivation for wanting to achieve this?
1. Love that feeling when you cross the finish line
2. I want to be a bit less slow than 2016
3. I feel good when I’m training for an event.

What is your background and how did you get into your sport?
I really only started running in my 40s! First full marathon at 48, then when we came to NZ I discovered trail running and haven’t looked back.

What is your favourite event/or training mission so far?
Mountain Run C2C…

…because it’s completely bonkers – and it’s a buzz to be a part of it.

What is your favourite training ride/run/kayak/swim etc?
I like the Coopers Creek to Wharfedale Track and back circuit.

Who is your inspiration?
Anybody over 50 still out there running in the hills.

Who is your biggest fan?
Probably my 17 year old son who appreciates having an active Mum.

Do you have an inspirational quote that you would like to share?
“There will be a day when I can no longer run. Today is not that day.”

What is your favourite recovery food?
Cornflakes with cream and sugar.
