I started running after finishing my accountancy exams, as I wanted “something to do” since I no longer had to study and I liked the idea of running.

The plan was to run 5k once or twice a week to help build my fitness to aid me in my squash game. Almost 3 years later and I’m regularly running at least 25 miles per week, ran more than 10 half marathons, one road marathon (soon to be two with London later this year), 3 ultra marathons and countless 10k races… And I’ve given up playing squash.

The Striders have helped me do all of this including beating many personal targets and thankfully many members frequently remind me to keep myself hydrated… In 2017 I became a leader for Monday and Wednesday nights and in 2018 I was privileged to be selected as treasurer for the club.
