As well as watching her children compete in their various endurance runs, Emily cultivates her own "bit of good life" in her garden in Barrow.
"I have a dog and chickens and ducks and I have a very big garden and tolerant neighbours," she said.
"I have a dog and it is great to go up to the Lakes for a walk at the weekend to somewhere with a cafe and a pub. I like to go up to Skelwith Bridge, that is one of our favourite haunts."
