I spent a lot of my childhood running (literally) late. Combined with being very competitive, this meant that I ended up doing well at a school cross country race when I was 13 and being picked for the team. The rest, as they say, is history. I ran at University in the UK, was offered a scholarship to run at the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque (for a sun-deprived Brit this was an easy sell.) While at college, I met my now husband, ran a bit more (and did some work) back in the UK while I waited a tediously long time for a visa and eventually ended up in Durango by way of Salt Lake City. I thought running a marathon was massive until I moved here and met a bunch of crazy people who convinced me that running more than a marathon was a perfectly normal thing to do. I also discovered that it's easy to want to run a long way when you have miles of trails on your doorstep. I completed my first ultra in 2017 and have at least one more planned for 2018.
