What fuels my running? The buzz I get after an intense session. I won't go running without my... really comfy running socks! I love the Thorlo Experia socks for colder days, and the Hilly Monoskin for warmer days. I run and become... to blow out the cobwebs and be ready for the day's challenges. My best ever running experience... When I'm doing speed work. Sprinting focuses me and thrills me.
