Why did you start running?

I was involved in a fatal traffic accident in work, where two of my colleagues were killed while I was working with them. I suffered a bit after that. Things went downhill. One day, I went for a run and changed things forever. If I never had a PB or a fast race, it wouldn’t bother me, as long as I can get out each day and clear the head. Now, don’t get me wrong; listening to Stazza about not going for a PB is actually worse than not getting it. 😂😂😂

Got in contact with John Starrett in 2017 and haven’t looked back. To be honest, I can’t wait for every Sunday afternoon, just to check to see what training I have for the week. 🙌🙌🙌🙌

What do you like about Stazza’s Stable?

Absolute legends in The Stable—all fantastic people and everyone encouraging people, no matter what time or distance they can run. I’d like to meet Stazza too someday. 😂😂😂

What is your motto?

You only die ONCE, live every day.
