As a child the education system didn’t suit me, I spent my time trying to hide in the background, bumbling through school, doing just enough to get through, until I was old enough to leave. Then when I left I got the first job that came along, and got stuck there for 24 years, feeling unmotivated and uninspired, wanting to leave but never knowing how.
Fast forward to 2019, I quit that job and lept into the unknown, started my own business, and started doing something that I’m hugely passionate about. I’ll be the first person to admit that I’m not the most qualified person out there, but what I can promise you, is that I’m incredibly passionate about getting you out on those trails, no matter what your ability. That’s why since setting up ESCAPE trails I haven’t stopped doing something that I never managed to do at school – learning.
That’s why, over the past 6 months I haven’t stopped reading books, listening to podcasts, talking to coaches, doing courses (like the one in the pic), and prepping for doing my full coaching qualification next year. So that when you’re out on the trails with me I can give you the confidence that I know my stuff, making you feel more relaxed, giving you the best experience possible, and ultimately giving you the confidence to hit the trails, and hopefully igniting your own passion for trail running and the sport that has had such a positive impact on my life.
Doing something that I care about so much means that I know I will never reach the point where I won’t want to learn more, nor will I ever feel like I know enough. So follow your passions and never stop learning people, you never know where it might lead you………..
