Ally is a fitness, health and lifestyle journalist, runner, and presenter. She is a writer for the likes of Women’s Health, Marie Claire, Cosmopolitan, Glamour, and The Telegraph.
When she’s not writing, she’s running. She’s completed countless half marathons all over the world, two London Marathons, and a lockdown marathon. Her latest obsession? Ultrarunning, thanks to the Ultra X team who challenged her to take on the Quarantine to Qualifier 60km distance with only 2 months of training!
Find out all about how she found training for her first ultra marathon by watching the short interview below.
