I ran my first marathon in 1997. Starting with only one or two per year. Since then I have enjoyed fitting as many marathon as possible into my budget and my yearly calendar, giving me the opportunity meet new people and explore new countries.

I have encouraged runners to take on Triple and Quad challenges, overseas. Since becoming a member of the Marathon Globetrotters I have promoted membership. At least two of the members from France joined as a result of my encouragement. And I have a number of Australian based runners considering applying at the moment.

In Australia I am a very active member of the Victorian Road Runners, an organization that has been running for 25years+.

I am also a member and previous committee member of the Melbourne Marathon Spartans (10 years Melbourne Marathon Runners), and organization that encourages runners to progress through the five year milestones of the Melbourne Marathon.

I am an assistant to the Australian Comrades Marathon Ambassador, assisting him with all enquiries and distribution of information about the Comrades Marathon in Australia. A number of these runners may be eligible for membership of the Globetrotters. I am also Marathon Maniac.

I thoroughly enjoy Networking and maintaining friendships, even from a distance.
