Running History

I started running back in 2014 after being a couch potato and overweight for the longest time of my life. Running has made me a healthier and happier person. Saturday Parkrun has become a regular outing for me and my family.

I have also done many marathons in Straya and is currently on the journey to finish all 6 world major marathons. Covid pandemic has put a pause on it but I’m hopeful and cannot wait to run international races again.

What are you most excited about for the 2021 course?

Running from Hamilton and along Brisbane River to the city. There is no better way to start your weekend

Favourite running song?

I don’t usually listen to music while I’m running. I like to chat to my fellow runners. If I run by myself, I enjoy people watching and sightseeing.
