Like most things in life, I fell into running face-first without any warning. I was lucky enough to have been brought up on the stunning North West coast of Scotland surrounded by sea lochs and mountains, which started a life-long love affair with wild places.
An extremely painful road marathon experience in 2013 should have put me off running for good, instead, it inspired me to run more and run higher. Since then, I’ve been a part-time teacher and part-time mountain runner with the occasional surprisingly competitive race finish to my name. In 2020 I set the fastest known time on the GR11 through the Spanish Pyrenees and in 2021 broke the record for the Haute Route Pyrenees that weaves in and out of Spain, France and Andorra, taking over 40 hours of the old record.
See you on the trails!
