With me as your coach, not only will you start to run further and faster (if these are amongst your goals), you’ll naturally discover the huge impact that running can have on your life as a whole.
There are so many amazing benefits to running ~ sometimes it just takes a coach to ensure you’re approaching it in the right way. If you’d like to chat about this further, get in touch to book a discovery call with me.
“The more I run, the more I love my body. Not because it’s perfect, far from it, but because with every mile it is proving to me that I am capable of more than I ever thought possible.”
IT STARTS WITH A SINGLE STEP...
My coaching is specific to YOU and so I am able to coach anyone regardless of running background, age or general fitness level. During our first call together we will chat about where you are currently at and we will also have a think about both your short and long term goals.
I truly believe that we are all born to run and that it is never too late to start. I particularly love working with beginners. Don’t worry if you feel you are ‘too old’, ‘too slow’ or just ‘not a runner’. We will start gently by using a run/walk strategy. My coaching will challenge you, but it will also be enjoyable and rewarding, allowing your fitness to develop alongside your love of running.
As your running coach, I am with you every step of the way! We will start our journey together with a call on Zoom where we’ll chat about your running background (if any) and what you would ultimately like to achieve. We’ll consider any particular circumstances such as family life or a busy career, which may impact your training from time to time. I’ll answer any questions you have on topics such as gear, nutrition and running terms (ever heard of a ‘fartlek’?!) and you’ll finish the call feeling excited and eager to start.
You’ll receive your training each week on a rolling basis using a program called Training Peaks. I’ll give you regular feedback and we’ll also speak on Zoom once a month to discuss how things are going in more detail.
I’m also available on Voxer during working hours to answer any questions or give you tips and motivation.
Sometimes life does get in the way, so if you need your training shuffled around to account for parents evenings or busy weeks at work, I can do that too!
If you are training for a specific race, I’ll help you with a strategy for race day, practical advice, and building that all-important confidence.
My 1-1 coaching is payable on a monthly basis in advance. Initially I ask for a three-month commitment from you in order for you to really start seeing and feeling the results. After the inital three months you are welcome to extend on a monthly basis.

I love running. It’s probably what I’m best known for in my day-to-day life and local community. Having being something of a runner at school, I rediscovered my love of the sport in 2011 when I was living in Cairo, Egypt. In 2013 I ran my first marathon, and have run nine marathons since, knocking 45 minutes off my time!
I have also become fascinated with the world of ultra-running, having competed in the 2 Oceans 56km event in Cape Town, and running the infamous Comrades Marathon (90km) two years in a row.
Since having Dylan, I have become so humbled by the sport and by what my body can do, and it is now my mission to get women into running, not only for fitness but for the mental health benefits. Running is my alone time, thinking time and a challenge I enjoy.
I’ve had my fair share of running highs and lows over the years; the highs including my marathon PB in Tokyo and running the Comrades Marathon (90km) twice. However, I also had a disaster at Berlin Marathon when I fell significantly short of the time I was aiming for and walked for most of the last 8km…when I was interviewed on German TV (facepalm). Getting back into fitness after having a baby has also been challenging, but it has also given me the drive and determination to succeed more than ever.
Throughout all the chaos and the ups and downs that life brings, running has remained my one constant. It helps you to recognise that you are stronger than you think, and that, given dedication and a willingness to adapt, we are capable of so much more than we could ever imagine.
Running can have such a huge impact on your life in so many ways, from travel to mental health. That’s why I am now helping other women (and men!) to begin running, despite all our preconceived notions and memories from school.
