How did you get started: Always ran for fun, and I had some friends starting to do running races so I tagged along and then just kept going !

Why I choose CPC: I knew of Sarah during my time at holistic endurance so was aware of the same training principles that appeal to me.

What I ‘get’ from my sport: It simply gives me the enjoyment of doing something for myself to make me a better person through mind and body of which benefits can then flow on to my family…
