i enjoy

I train every day looking forward to improving my time!

Strong points

I started athletics in 2015, and noticed there was still a lot I could do to improve the way I ran. I discovered a lot of things I needed to work on, and I think my strength lies in how I’ve worked to face and solve these issues, instead of running away.
