I started training with Kevin at the beginning of 2008 after placing 2nd in the City of Wellington half marathon.  I used to run when I was at school in the interschool, regional and national athletic and cross-country events, but I didn’t focus on my running as I was involved in other sports.  I’ve never belonged to a harriers club until this year, but I have always run to keep fit and have entered the occasional fun run and triathlon/duathlon event. 
I am really enjoying training with Kevin, as I have never had a structured programme before and I like the challenge of the long runs and speed sessions. 
I have decided to focus on my running this year and hope this enables me to improve on the results I have achieved so far. 
I did my first half marathon in 2003 after I decided to enter on the morning of the race.  I completed this in 1 hour 29 mins 33 secs and said I would never do it again when I finished because I had never run for so long!  I decided to do another 2 last year and 1 at the beginning of this year.  My times have improved each race and I hope this continues.
Here are some of my athletic achievements.
