I started at Vision 7 years ago to improve my fitness after having children. I have always avoided gyms but found Vision to be a positive, upbeat environment to restart my fitness journey. I was quick to join the Vision Running Group and enjoyed the sense of community that comes from running with others. Under the guidance of my trainer Karl Tansley, I gained the confidence to enter a number of road and trail running events, eventually realizing my passion for the Marathon. Over the years I have managed to set goals and realise those goals with the guidance and support from the Vision Team. I continue to train under Karl. I enjoy his varied strength sessions which keep me on the road, injury free. 2019 holds new personal goals for me - to qualify for Boston 2020 and the all elusive Berlin qualifier!
