Road mostly but don't mind muck on the odd occasion.
How did you start running?: 
Race for life, my sons friend had leukaemia aged 9. I was determined to run all 5k. I started by running lamppost to lamppost. Then Paul Harmes mentioned Park Run and Lliswerry Runners and I have never looked back. There is always someone to run with and made some incredible friendships.
