Team bio: 


I started running in May 2013. My first official run was Septeber 2013 Onehunga Half Marathon 1:46:46 this was followed by Auckland Half Marathon. 2014 started with "Auckland's most scenic half marathon" the Coatesville Classic and Rotorua Marathon then the Auckland Marathon (for Oxfam). I'm back this year. 2015 started with the Coatesville Classic (1:34) and Rotorua Marathon (3:28)


I've been training constantly this year. I'm currently doing about 120k a week and with the help of a coach, hope to do something around 3:20ish this year. Here's hoping!


Will you support me in the run by sponsoring Oxfam and their amazing work?

Thanks for reading.
