I have been running on and of since October 2005. I was inspired from my boss at the time taking part in Great North Run and Cardiff Half within 2 weeks. I have really caught the running bug, entering as many races as I can.
I finally got under 40mins for 10k at Castle Combe on 25/11/07. Had managed sub 40 10k splits in half marathons on 2 occasions previous to this!
Took part in my first Marathon in 2009, the Flora London Marathon! What a great experience! Was hoping for sub 4 hours, but due to swelling on the foot a fortnight before race, I was unable to train much! I ran the Virgin London Marathon in 2011 for the 2nd time, on a very hot Sunday morning. Again I was hoping for sub 4hours, but the heat got the better of me, finished in 4:03!
This year, I am running the Virgin London Marathon again! I am aiming for sub 3hrs 30mins this time. I have been training a lot harder than previous years, but also listening to my body to try and avoid those niggly injuries!!
I am raising money for Lifeblood - The Thrombosis Charity in memory of my Fiancee's Brother who passed away suddenly in August 2011 due to a blood clot on the lungs. He had turned 40 just 2 days before. My sponsor page is: Link (roll over me to see where I go)
