Newcastle-under-Lyme , United Kingdom
I am a physiotherapist and certified running coach. I have completed over 30 marathons and ultras around the world, and completed my PhD on running performance and injuries in 2020. With my extensive running experience and injury knowledge, my aim is keep people running and enjoy it. Over a 1 year period half of all runners will sustain a running injury, and my training programmes are practical and aim to boost performance and minimise the risk of injury.

My motto for running is, “If you are going to train that hard and run that far, you might as well do it somewhere nice and enjoy it in the process”. My other motto which comes from the legendary coach Arthur Lydiard is, “Train to race, don’t race to train”.
