My main tasks are to look after the club email account, answer enquiries from the public and provide admin support to the Board. i started running (trying to beat the bus) to and from school nearly 60 years ago but didn't race regularly or train systematically until I joined Phoenix three years ago. Half marathons and all Sussex Grand Prix races are my special interest.
As a regular attender and hopefully a familiar face at club training sessions (mainly track training at Withdean from 6.45 on Wednesdays and Clubruns from 6.30pm on Thursdays) I am a contact point for any questions or concerns about club events, upcoming races and training sessions, though for technical advice our coaches are your best bet!
I have been a member of Phoenix for nearly ten years, during which time I have built up from 10Ks and Parkrun in its early days to Marathon running (a Brighton brace and one London Marathon so far) as well as endurance off-road events such as the South Downs Way Relay. I also enjoy cross country and have dipped my toe into multisport with a couple of sprint triathlons and aquathlons. I like to fly the Phoenix flag abroad too, having raced in Germany, Portugal, Majorca and Lanzarote - keep the flame alight!
We are responsible for the track and field U13 league events for all athletes in years 4-7.
Paula is enthusiastic and encouraging to the young athletes having two daughters who compete in the league. She regularly competes herself in many 5k and 10k events.
Emily previously worked as a Television Producer for the cult programme Trans World Sport and her passion for athletics and statistics is evident as she closely monitors the Power of 10 to help her choose the teams. Her daughter competes in the U15 league.
I am a BTF level 2 coach, so feel free to speak to me about all things multi-sport. I still participate in local triathlons and duathlons and have represented GB at age-group level in the past. I have been a member of Phoenix AC for over 16 years, helping form the mulit-sport side of the club and have previously served on the Management Board. You can usually find me at the track on Wednesday trying to hone my newly re-invigorated track-racing skills but I'm equally at home on the road for 10k or 1/2 marathons, at parkruns or on the country in winter.
