Trying to get some sharpness back after a 3 week break. You soon lose what takes a long time to build up!! Couple of 10ks in September, couple of halves in Oct/Nov, with some park runs sprinkled in when the cricket season finishes.

About Me


Used to run for school & district cross country, but never kept it up. Entered Stratford half marathon in 2004 when the missus was pregnant with our first to replace our long walks with training runs. I just missed out on sub 2hrs which was the best thing that could have happened for my running career. I was hooked & had to beat it!! Did Tewksbury following year and smashed it 1.47. Kept on entering 2-3 races a year including ingural Birmingham half and found the more I put into my running the more satisfaction I got out of it. In 2012 entered Stratford marathon, only for it to be called off 10mins before the start due to Noah appearing in his ark. Plan B was The Wales marathon in June. a beautiful course with plenty of challenges, but I am a Marathoner. The same bug has afflicted me as it did 10 years ago; there is time to take off from my marathon time, along with every other distance I have ever run and so the challenge continues. I have found a vent for my competitive streak and work/life stresses and I LOVE RUNNING!!
