Describe yourself in three words…
It’s always one of those common interview style questions that potential employers like to throw at you!
Honest, passionate and determined.
My biggest passions are running, teaching and shopping! I’ve been a city girl for the last 10 years now and live in Manchester with my amazing hubby and puppy Rupert.
I’m pretty new to the world of blogging, but I love words and having been an English teacher for the last 9 years, it seemed like a great way to share my journey and use language (and a few pics) to share the love!
Last Summer, I decided to fully step into the world of social media and share my experience as a runner, living with the incurable degenerative disk disease of the spine. I desperately wanted to help encourage and inspire others living with pain by sharing my honest thoughts and feelings.
In September 2016, I was overwhelmed to have been selected by UK Women’s Health Magazine to be a top 5 finalist in ‘The Body 2016’ competition. Something that was beyond my wildest dreams and although I didn’t win, the support and encouragement that I have received since then, has spurred me on to share tips on running, fitness, nutrition, health and beauty.
My motto and all time favourite hashtag… #nevergiveup
Would love you to follow my journey to my first marathon!
