I walk – a lot. I run – a little. And I bike – occasionally. I’m lucky enough to live in two beautiful places: Hampshire and Cumbria, although if truth be told, the mountains win hands down.
Over the years I’ve backpacked numerous long distance trails, often in the company of my daughter or husband. The most memorable of these was when my daughter and I walked from Winchester to Windermere. Occasionally I enter challenge events, almost always in Cumbria.
When I’m not out walking or running I teach Pilates – which is rather a change from years of teaching English, Art & Outdoor Education in senior schools. I’m also creating a sketchbook of a year in Lakeland which will be published in Spring 2023.
