Having done athletics at national level (100m,200m and 4 x 100m) when I was younger it had always been a part of my DNA. Once I realised UA had a platform where now as a 40-year old I could carry on this passion I had to get involved. I love the nervousness I get come race day and also the discipline that is required to maintain and improve on the track. I love the competition. I get total satisfaction from telling people my age when they see me competing as like most things they fall into the trap of thinking it’s only for the kids.
Well, it’s not and this season I plan on going faster than I ever have to dispel this myth.
