What does trail running mean to you?
I love everything about trail running! I love the remote places and the scenic views the trails can lead you to. I love the people of the trail running community. I love that the trails challenge you to keep putting in the work because you can always get better and there is always more to learn.
What are you most looking forward to at Tarawera?

What’s the 1 piece of advice you would give to newcomers to running ultras?
Keep trying! Be patient with yourself and persistent with your training.
In the running world tell us about someone you admire?
How could I pick just one!? Too many to name.
What motivates you when running gets tough?
I am really curious about the mental aspect of running. Physically, it will always eventually hurt. How can our brains help us overpower that physical pain?
