I am a fully qualified, licensed British Athletics Coach. I coach at Watford Harriers Athletics Club as well as having my own groups and personally coaching a number of athletes and runners from beginners to those seeking new inspiration and personal bests.

I believe anyone can run and everyone can love running. I enjoy coaching anyone who wants to improve whatever their goals. Hard work can still be delivered with positivity and a sense of humour. I am experienced in ongoing coaching as well as towards a specific race. As a former elite athlete you know I know how to train, target and peak for an event whether its 5k, 10k, half marathon or marathon. I can support you whether you're aiming for a specific time or just aiming to complete the event. Most importantly, I will ensure your training plan starts from where you are now and know how to fit your training around your work, family and life and still be your best because I've done that myself.

I have 30 years experience as an athlete and achieved a number of international honours. Most notably representing Great Britain in the marathon as part of the Bronze medal winning team at the European Championships in 2010. I finished in the top 20 at the London Marathon and the top 10 of the Great North Run. On the track my best performance was 6th in 10000ms Manchester Commonwealth Games in a new personal best. I have competed at national and international level at track, road, cross country. And I'm still running now so join me!
