Canterbury born and bred. I am 29 years of age, father to be and cop by day.

Running serves many purposes in my life, whether it be competition, personal gains, helping others or escapism. It's a movement I believe we are meant be doing. Sitting is the new smoking.

I have an insatiable appetite to run as many trails, summit as many mountains in this short time I'm here for.

Favourite Shoe: Altra Olympus 2.0 because of its superior cushioning | zero drop and toe splay attributes. It's a solid go to shoe for trail and road if need be. Perfect for those long slogs in the hills.
