I am an export from the UK, and now a proud Canadian citizen, who loves being outside and playing in the snow, sun and running or hiking in the mountains.  Some describe me as an outdoor nut, which is probably true. I have always played sport and after I had my two sons, I started to run. Since then I have completed loads of different races from 5k to the infamous Marathon des Sables. (See my story of my "Why".)

If I am not out running with my dog Louis, then I am staring at a map working out where to trail run this summer!
