Christina Kersey

I began running about 10 years ago focusing originally on the half marathon distance.  In the last 5 years, I have upped my mileage and competed in 7 international marathons.  I love the buzz and adrenaline rush that comes with competing as well as the mental discipline and physical challenge of training for the marathon distance.

I am from New Zealand originally (half Malaysian) and studied and worked in Wellington for eight years before moving to Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. While the half and full marathon distances are my strongest (and favourite) distances, I am currently focusing on getting my 10km time down and have also reached a goal I set myself of breaking the 3 hour marathon barrier.
