Andrea-Louise Glenn is 45 (eesh, how did that happen?) and lives in Bristol, UK with her husband, four children, a dog, a snake a gerbil and a hamster (at the last count). Andrea home educates her children but has miraculously also found time for running marathons and writing about running marathons. In her first published book, Running Mark's Marathon - The Making of a Mid-Life Marathon Runner, Andrea journals training for and running her first marathon in memory of her brother Mark.
Before having children and having relinquished her childhood ambition to become a ballerina, Andrea worked as a medical laboratory technician, then moved into social care eventually training as a social worker. Other points of interest about Andrea: If she had been a boy she would have been named Kevin, she once spent a summer working in an underwear factory and she is a Christian.
Andrea has always enjoyed expressing herself in writing and with her first venture into sharing her writing with an audience hopes to inspire anyone to believe that with commitment and training they could run a marathon. Don't be fooled by the home schooling and marathon running into thinking she is some kind of super-mum, she's really pretty ordinary; sometimes thinking she has it all together but more often teetering on the edge of chaos and remarkably not tipping over and falling in. She is an on and off runner of very average ability currently trying to find and maintain the discipline to train regularly in the midst of the whirlwind of life. She started to run in 2010 and in her fitter phases has run 8 half-marathons, 3 marathons and a handful of 10k races. Other things Andrea enjoys are time with friends, singing, reading, watching films and the occasional bit of knitting.
