Life is good, but it doesn’t mean it is easy.

I would love to be able find the time to train, race and win a trail race before the end of 2016 – the last race I did was Kemensah Krazy 45km trail in April 2015 and I came in 4th, without knowing I was just 4 weeks pregnant.

To be the person you wanted to be like when you grow up. When others tell you they want to be like you when they grow up.
