Lesley is an Ultra runner in every sense of the word. She is a well known and respected figure in Glasgow who has consistently helped businesses with their office interior fit-out needs over many years so her passion for the real deal comes as no surprise.
Lesley and her husband are regular competitors in some of the biggest Ultra Marathons in Scotland. All we can say is either midges don’t like you or you run too fast!
In more reflective moments, peace and quiet do appeal and a dream holiday would be hot air ballooning in the mountains around Annecy in France. Uniquely for air travel – apart from when the burners are heating the air in the balloon, flight is silent and then you really do hear the sound of silence!
Obviously with running being such an integral part of Lesley’s life, a geeky obsession with running shoes and Garmin watches is to be expected. The great thing is that in Glasgow you can combine shopping for these along with her favourite cuisine; locally sourced Scottish food, preferably fresh scallops cooked in butter, garlic and splash of orange.
Typically Lesley’s favourite quote comes from another Ultra Runner – Dean Karnazes: “Run when you can; walk when you have to; crawl when you must; just never give up” which says so much about her dedication and commitment to achieving at work too.
