“I was over the moon to win the Bristol half on Sunday. I’ve had a really tough year and thought I wouldn’t be able to compete competitively again this time last year so to just be lining up at races again is amazing. I also love that I can compete well again while also raising money and representing a great cause such as the RAF Benevolent Fund”.
