I’m so fortunate to have a job that allows me to travel the world. But as a professional athlete, I’m more accustomed to spending hours of the day stuck within a hotel room and travelling between the airport and the athletics track! As I’ve got older, this is something I’ve wanted to change.

I don’t want to be 70 years old, looking back on all the amazing countries I’ve visited but without ACTUALLY being there or experiencing anything other than my running. With that in mind – I’ve made a bucket list. An endless list of things I want to do or see throughout my life. Realistically with my current training, I’ll aim to tick at least one thing off every year – during my two week off.

Let me know what’s on your bucket list? What do you recommend I add?
