Lancashire Lass, global trotter, currently residing in Manchester...trail running aficionado and advanced personal trainer at your service :) Been fortunate to travel to around 270 cities across our globe and fortunately the runners have some with me to most places! Running has been my best friend and worst enemy for about 6 years now.

Retaining your Running Mojo
