The need for speed
Photographer, designer, chilli addict.
Normally seen running along Colchester Road in Ipswich, Emma hung up her trainers in March this year, after completing the Cambridge half marathon to focus on cycling. She's finding it fun to tick off the miles a little quicker than she can on foot and she particularly loves her downhill finish she gets after every ride, weeeee!

Lesley Nash, Tara Nash, Mark Coates, Summer Coates, James Kindred, Eva Kindred, Nola Kindred. They are all part of this great challenge. From booking hotels to laughing at me in silly shorts, we couldn't have done this without their help and support. Thanks in advance to them for the tea making, bacon bap buying and legs rubs - Go Team!
