About Me

October 2009. Was two stone heaviler, smoked and had not exercised at all for nearly 20 years - unless walking to the pub counts! Liquid carbs

I got a place in the 2010 London Marathon and got just fit enough not to die half way around the course - the only condition that my missus insisted upon before allowing me to actually run. I kept up the running afterwards.

In April 2012 I ran my third London marathon. I did so in memory of my wife who passed away that January, aged just 43.

I run raising funds for a charity very dear to my heart. P.A.R.C. Essex works with children and young adults with disabilities. My son (who has austism) loves the place is goes there regularly. They are a fantastic bunch of people who do amazing work and have provided my family much needed support both before and after the death of my wife.

My legs seemed to have started to work again. Weird.

Running For Charity

This user is running for PARC Essex -

I have a gorgious 5 year old son who has austism. The people at PARC work to help children with a wide range of disabilities and their familes and they have been particularly helpfuly in keeping me sane (ish) over the last three years - a time when my wife has also had very major health concerns, having had 6 major operations at least a few of which undoubtedly saved her life.
