Me as The Running Squirrel is a relatively new (now not so new- 2013) concept bought about by running with my dog, Rufus and my husband, Jon. He would chase squirrels (Rufus not Jon!) and we would chase him which made for great fartlek training. This training type and route became one of the mainstays of my (our) ultra MdS training (even without Rufus as the runs got too long and fast for his little legs).
Squirrels was a winning formula! and I foolishly mentioned that if I did well I would have to honour it with a tattoo…..so a tattoo of a squirrel is what I have…..and I love it!
Me as a runner in not a new concept. I have been running since I was about 15. I have always run long and enjoy the sense of freedom it gives you to explore.
