As we walk on

Tuesday 12 Sep, 17

Perseverance is the name of the game whether on the track or in life we all need to learn the art of walking on regardless of obstacle or outcome. My journey to an Olympic medal wasn't easy and it certainly didn't happen overnight, when I am asked how I did it there is no short answer but looking back the best answer is an unwavering determination which took me over peaks and through troughs, something that I worked on each day alongside the physical endurance needed for a 20km was the mental fortitude to continue to push myself every day to new levels.
