Racing at all distances from 5k to 50 miles, she ran over 40 marathons between 2004 and 2014, winning more than 20 of them. When injuries and surgeries forced her to put running aside, Leah took up cycling. In 2016 She entered the inaugural Zwift Academy, a competition to find a professional cyclist using a virtual training platform,  and became the first ever Zwift Academy champion.
