Why is running important to you?

It keeps me sane really – its just great to get up and go out to clear the head

Emily and Myles are unreal! The encouragement is just phenomenal. My group friends there are great, even through this ordeal they motivate me to get out.

Me and cross country are not friends anymore!

I love swimming!

Tell us something that no one in the club knows about you!?

I have never been on a tractor & I am pretty ok with a football for a person who doesn’t have a football background.
