I ran a lot of cross countrys and 800m races for my school up until about year 10 not really getting any further than scraping into the suffolk team. Then decided to see what i could do so started training properly from december 2008.
What is your greatest achievement to date?
Probably either coming 9th in the euro cross last year or winning the national cross country. Hopefully this weekend should take that title!
Biggest weekly mileage so far?
Who is your sporting hero?
Not entirely sure, definitely has to be a runner. I guess either Prefontaine or Rupp. I’ve been told I have a Prefontaine-esque running style (kind of a backhanded compliment I think). And Rupp’s holding it down for the white man!
What is your favourite sport other than athletics?
What is your favourite film?
Love a good comedy! Anchorman, Superbad and both Hangovers are all top films!
If you had the ability to fly, where would you fly to on your first trip and why?
I’d fly to and from America and England, save on all the expensive flights
What is your favourite food and how often do you get to eat it?
Anything from the tescos bakery! And a little too often….
If you could go on a date with anyone who would it be?
From the athletics world, Jessica Ennis without a doubt. Generally I’d say it’s between Beyonce and Rhianna. Maybe all 3?
Within 10 years I will be…………………………………….
Who knows? Hopefully I’ll still be running to a decent level, in a dream world I’d have a couple of olympics under my belt.
