About Me:

I have been a member of Barrow Runners for 14 years joining after marshalling the Barrow 10 mile race. I was introduced to the club by Coach John Rees who at the time had the misfortune to be my boss.

I have been an active member of the committee for at least 10 years covering membership for about 8 seasons.

My first official event was the Barrow 6 which I completed in 1.10 later the same year did the Barrow 10 in 1.50 a never repeated PB. My greatest running achievements have been 3 London Marathons in 2008, 2012 and 2016....every 4 years but not at Olympic standard!

I consider myself a social runner running for fitness and heath and have made many life long friends through my association with the club. I love to introduce others to the club and have been helping Sue with our beginners group on Monday nights.

My other hobbies are walking swimming reading and fashion anyone who knows me well will have had sight of my impressive shoe collection

Married to Kevin for nearly twenty years (not sure which of us needs the medal) we have a son Jamie, 18, and an extended family including our lovely granddaughter Lilia, 7.
