Wishing my office job away, forever dreaming of adventures in the wild this blog is about how I make the most of my free time, my journey transitioning from road running to ultra trails and all that goes with it.

I have been running since 2014 and trail running for nearly two years – I started by running the London Marathon for charity, caught the marathon bug and significantly improved my time over 26.2 miles but as soon as my legs discovered mountains, fells and trails my soul went with the wild.

As a girl who hasn’t had the traditional school cross country & track to adult elite competing route, I want to share what I’ve learned, what I am still learning and hopefully share (and gain more!) tricks of the trade and trail buddies along the way.

Run wild & free and remember to never lose that smile.

For those who don’t know me…here is a little overview of me as a runner:

My favourite thing is to run up hill

My marathon PB is 2.39 which I have run twice, annoyingly

I hold the women’s course record for the South Downs Way 50 (6.54 in case you wanted to know) – my first 50 miler & first ultra win. Whoop

I love an off-beat running accessory. Bum bags, visors, a good pair of socks, head bands….you name it, I’m game

My given trail name is Jetpack Jules….

Lots of running means snacks. What will you find in my race vest/bum bag/stuffed up my sleeve? Soreen (with butter), GU (salted caramel, chocolate mint, chocolate & coconut roctane, vanilla, strawberry & banana, LEMONADE ROCTANE…the list is endless), chocolate brioche, a (probably rather bruised) banana and to round it off some Tailwind or Maurten. That should keep us going.

I am a member of the Maverick Race trail family – if you haven’t come to play, please do

I often get lost. Something I am working very hard on fixing
