Off the back of running -

2 Marathons 

1 ultra Marathon 

2 Backyard Marathons 

In 2023 , I wanted to give my body and mind a little rest . I am

Currently training for Manchester Marathon , hopefully London 2 Brighton ultra Marathon and then finally back to Berlin with a charity place to support the awesome Mind Mental Health Charity ..

All these events will be self funded by myself so hopefully I can raise a few quid for a charity that is very close to my heart .

As someone who  has and still suffers with mental health issues albeit with the help of people like Mind I am in a much stronger place to be able to manage my MH . I don’t think it’s something I will ever be “cured” of but learning to live and manage with it is made easier by these kinds of charities who have helped me so much over the last 3 years so time to give something back .

My running journey has been an important tool in helping me manage and find respite from this crippling disease. See link below to a podcast where I talk openly and honestly about my running and MH .
