Coaching

Her approachable, friendly, non-judgemental style and her understanding of the needs of women runners make her the ideal coach for you.

"My approach to coaching is to really understand the personal I'm supporting". I work closely with them to develop a plan that works for their personal situation and contexts and specifically meets their goals. Together we will develop a training routine that is appropriate, progressive and motivating. I enjoy speaking to the runners I coach regularly and sharing their journey".
