International Mountain Leader
My running journey started when I was very young: my father used to send me and my brother out running along the lane on which we lived, so we would burn off energy! Later, in my teenage years, running became something that I did to train for other sports. This continued until I got to university, when I started to run longer distances. It was then that I started to realize how much I loved running. A couple of years after university, I was living in the UK’s Lake District and was fortunate enough to meet some fell runners. That was the start of my life as a mountain runner! Twenty years later, I still love running in the mountains, whether for fun, guiding clients, or taking part in trail and Skyrunning races.

Breezy Mornings Merino Beanie
Fact: We’re kind of picky about our beanies. Some are not thick enough, some are too thick. Some of us (no names, please) have big heads and find some big-name outdoors brands (no names, please) to have, well, not enough volume under the dome.
