What is your favorite distance to run? 10km. The ideal distance to test both endurance and speed.

What has been your favorite race to date? Tokyo Marathon 2015 was a surreal experience. I never thought I’d be lucky enough to go all the way there to run the marathon. Chicago Marathon 2015 was probably the best race experience to date. The flat and fast course goes through 29 different neighbourhoods so the marathon really feels like the ultimate sightseeing tour. The atmosphere throughout Chicago during the marathon weekend is incredible.

What’s your dream race to run? New York Marathon is the last big marathon on my bucket list but I’ve been unlucky in the ballot a few times so keeping my fingers crossed for a place in 2017.

2017 races: Berlin Half Marathon, Spartan Sprint UK South East, Hackney Half Marathon and hopefully another triathlon, New York Marathon and qualification for OCR World Championships in Canada.
