About Me


Half marathon plodder turned ultra runner.

I did at least a half marathon a month between April 2009 and January 2013 when my intended race was cancelled due to the snow. I still do them, although with a bit less OCD, and I have now done over 70 half marathons. I have coped with them while boiled (St Albans, Humber Bridge and Ufdance), drenched (Barns Green and Sussex Beacon - nice weather Sussex!), battered by the wind (Four Villages), both battered by the wind and drenched (Shakespeare), fogged up (St Neots, Seaford), and frozen (Keyworth and Polar Night).

After shedding a couple of buckets of lard that I had been carrying around about my person for several years I achieved the elusive sub-2 half marathon in September 2009 and I have been chipping away at this pb ever since, achieving a sub 1:40 at Gosport in 2013. The half marathon has historically been the favoured distance but in recent years I have been focusing on improving my marathon time and getting a GFA time for London and a Boston qualifying time, as well as training hard for the best race ever, Comrades. I have now done over 40 marathons.

5km races hurt a bit too much so I mostly volunteer at Parkrun - I'm often the timer at Braunstone.

Race goals left are sub 9 Comrades, which I didn't manage in 2014, and an autumn marathon in sub 3:30. I already achieved two goals for 2014 as I got sub 3:30 in February and I also got to run Boston Marathon, which was ace.

Races that I would like to do, in no particular order: Two Oceans, Glasgow to Edinburgh, Jungfrau Marathon, Mont Ventoux Half Marathon, the Blaydon Race.
