I’ve dabbled with running on and off for several years, building up fitness in the springtime by following the couch to 5k programme, only to run out of steam a few months later, and often giving up altogether when the cold weather sets in.

In 2017, as part of my low-carb keto lifestyle overhaul, I’ve finally managed to make running a regular part of my life, and now it plays a vital part in my weightloss and health improvement journey. I’ve gone from an unfit overweight woman who could barely run 200m, to a regular 5k runner, avid parkrunner and running club member, and I even competed in my first two 10k races earlier this year.

Each Saturday morning at 9am, rain or shine, you are likely to find me at my local Walthamstow parkrun, or one of the other nearby East London parkruns.

Current PB’s:

Walthamstow parkrun November 2017- 31:30

Hackney Marshes parkrun July 2017 – 29:43


Cambridge Town and Gown 10k October 2017 – 1hr 08:59
