Where is Shona? That's the question on the lips of the running community in Kerry who have not seen the incredibly talented Shone Heaslip in action for the past eighteen months.

The holder of numerous Kerry, Munster and All-Ireland road, track and cross-country titles, Heaslip's phenomenal sporting career came to an abrupt halt in November 2018 when she broke her foot while competing in the Easy Kit Cross Cup International cross-country race in Belgium. Despite the excruciating pain she still crossed the finish line in third position. Now back to full training, Shona reflects on a period of her life without running, competition and training.
