An interview with a runner's hero
Running's easily perceived as boring. Why do you do it?
My weight (laughs). Before this, I was flabby. It was horrible. So what started as a simple weight management workout turned into a passion. To be honest, running wasn't in the initial plan! I was personally more interested in stuff like boot camps to lose weight, but surprisingly, running just stuck. And it's not boring at all to me.
After about two years with running, I also began cycling and swimming in the hope of taking on my first triathlon very soon.
I can see how waking up at 5am in the mornings to run might seem a little boring for some people, but not for me, not at all.
