I was born just south of Edinburgh but always said that I wanted to live in the mountains and spent endless time exploring the remote corners of the UK on foot. After getting accidentally stuck in the city for years after university I realised that I was getting ‘old’ and had better get a move on if I really did want to escape. The very next day a temporary contract came up in Aviemore and I started packing!
Always motivated by fun I seem to constantly be getting myself into hilarious situations by signing up to things that sound like they would provide a lot of laughter and an ‘experience’. Generally, I get a lot more than I bargained for, but I always have an amazing time!
Not many people know this
I have the ability to sweet-talk pretty much anybody up and over a huge A-Frame, even if they are absolutely terrified of heights. I just love seeing people light up when they conquer something, so I have almost as much fun marshalling races as I do running them :)
