How long have you been running what made you take it up: I’m running since 2013, I managed to give up smoking and took up running to try to keep off them. Became addicted to running instead!
Favourite thing about running: The freedom it gives you to get out and clear your head and the opportunity to meet others in the running community.
Favourite race distance to run: I think maybe the 5 mile distance, The Ballycotton summer series were some of my first races.
What is your main goal for this year: If Charleville Half Marathon goes ahead a PB hopefully!
Your best race/most memorable racing moment to date: I really enjoyed Berlin Marathon last year and the finish near the Brandenburg gate.
Tell us something most people might not know about you: I’m actually not from Bandon!
Biggest heroes (sporting or non-sporting): John Tracey, love watching Jimmy McGee’s classic commentary in the Los Angeles ’84 Olympic Marathon. Always makes me want to sign up for one.
One bit of advice you would give to someone thinking of taking up running: Slow down.
3 things you would take with you onto a desert island: 3 pairs of Vaporflys.
