1) Can you tell us a bit about yourself and your running journey - how and when did you start running?
I have always been an active person and started road running quite young. I started trail running in 2011 when I friend took me from Parkview to Tai Tam and i was instantly hooked. I did my first trail race in 2011 and I am 50 now, fitter and stronger than I have ever been.
2) What is your strength when it comes to endurance running?
I think my strengths when it comes to endurance running is being able to adapt to different situations and circumstances, which is essential for long distance running as anything can happen. Over the years i also seem to have a high tolerance to discomfort. And most importantly I like my own company.
3) What made you want to participate in the HK4TUC?
To answer this question I will share my essay that I wrote to Andre, explaining why I wanted to participate in 2019 HK4TUC
As for my reasons for wanting to do this challenge.....to show my two girls anything is possible if you work hard and have a dream. To be able to run on home ground and have amazing support around me.
Points which come from races have never interested me really, just finishing something that you start to your best ability and if that comes with points then fair enough but it’s definitely not why I choose to do races. So no points, no medal that’s good.
I also believe to be able to complete this challenge you have to really really want it, not just give it a go and see how far you can go but 100% want to and believe you can do it. I am at that point, it’s the next thing for me.
4) If you could give one piece of advice to women who enjoy running what would it be?
One piece of advice to women who enjoy running, never ever compare yourself to other runners, run for yourself.
