Despite having to deal with Arthrogryposis (which affects her joints, muscles and nerve endings) Ruth has always lived her life large and she doesn't like to feel anything has beaten her. With the support of her family and friends she competed for many years in her favourite sports of swimming, skiing, athletics and horse riding. Although she retired from competitive sport several years ago, in between working full time she describes herself as always looking for a new and exciting adventure.
