Hi there, having lived in and around Buckley all my life and worked in the Civil Service for nearly 20 years, I took early redundancy to pursue activities I enjoy.  I started hiking  over 30 years ago, about 5 years ago I started running, I am hooked and have completed numerous races from 5k’s up to ultra marathons.  I run most days with my dogs and have a great knowledge of safe off-road routes around our local woodlands, parks and hills.

 

Dogs have always been in our family, I have over 40 years experience of dealing with dogs of differing personalities.  I live with my husband and we currently have 2 Lurchers, both rescued from local centres.  Fletch came to us having been rehomed several times due to his overbearing and boisterous behaviour.  I persevered with him and his boundless energy has been chanelled into running, he is now the most amazing running partner and is absolutely perfect in the home.

 

 

Sharing a tent together we have completed the coast to coast 200 mile footpath amongst others.  We have run some one day ultra races including the Lakeland 50 and the Bullock Smithy 56 miler and really enjoy competing in Canicross races around the UK.  Tess was very introverted and underweight when we adopted her and I have to say a very reluctant runner!  She required socialising and it has taken patience, time and encouragement to give her the confidence to venture away from my side and interact with other dogs.

 

We regularly meet with other Canicross runners with their dogs, as the social aspect is great for the dogs temperament as well as improving everyone's health and fitness.  I have introduced many people to the sport of Canicross and enjoyed watching them progress in terms of confidence and fitness and they all love it!  I get so much satisfaction from running with my dogs, seeing them so focused when racing, the bond between us has strengthened through Canicross and it makes me love them even more.  I'm really looking forward to meeting you and your dogs and taking them out for some great walks and runs together in beautiful & varied locations such as Moel Famau, Nercwys woods, Llandegla forest, Loggerheads......so many choices around here!
