As an elite marathoner, sports scientist and running coach, running has been my passion since I was eleven years old. Nothing else has bought me the highs (and lows) that running has.
Whilst I have had many successes along the way, I’ve also made mistakes. I want to share the vast amount that I have learnt with others to ensure they don’t make the same ones.
My passion for coaching was born whilst studying at Oxford University. I found I really enjoyed helping others to reach their goals. I have a Master’s in Exercise Physiology and am extremely interested in the science behind distance running training. For the last four years, I have coached athletes at RunnersConnect. I’ve worked with so many different runners with their own stories and individual needs.
My philosophy centres around the health and happiness of the athlete. A healthy and happy athlete is most often a fast one! If an athlete isn’t healthy and happy, any successes will be short-lived and unsustainable. My coaching centres on these two principles in the knowledge that a healthy, happy athlete will see improvements with intelligent training.
