MOST PLEASING ATHLETIC PERFORMANCE

My marathon debut at the 2019 Belfast Marathon. I dedicated a few months to training for the event and even with a few interruptions in the buildup and a longer-than-expected course on race day I blew away my pre-race expectations, clocking 2hrs 37mins and taking the NI & Ulster bronze medal with a sprint finish in Ormeau park.

BEST POSITIONS/ PERFORMANCES IN RACES

3rd in 2019 NI marathon champs (& leading man for Striders' 2nd-placed team at the event)
4th team at 2018 Seeley Cup 10K
2nd team at 2017 IUAA road relays (for Queen's)
1st Somerset Schools 3000m 2014

ANY OTHER COMMENTS

I came across Annadale Striders purely by chance when I moved to Belfast to attend Queen's University Belfast. I couldn't have stumbled across a club with more history, or a greater depth of knowledge, had I tried. I am proud to wear the orange and black vest and look forward to competing for the club for many years to come.
