Joan lives in the West of Ireland.
She competes in canicross, usually running with her gorgeous 8 year old Rhodesian Ridgeback, Nunu (IKC registered name Sikulubani Thandwe) pulling enthusiastically in front.
Joan won the Canicross Ireland national championship in Female Canicross last season, and currently holds the age category record at 3 different Park Run events.
She and Nunu have run sub 24 minutes over 5 kms and they are hoping to replicate that pace at the European Canicross Championships in Italy this October.
With her current level of training and running, she is in with a very good chance of coming home with a medal for Ireland in her class!!!
