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

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.

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.

Some of my favourite quotes:-

"Do not pray for an easy life, pray for the strength to endure a difficult one"
Bruce Lee

Any fool can be a father but only a real man can be a dad

"There will be days when you don't know if you can run the marathon, but there will be a lifetime of knowing that you have"

At mile 20 I thought I was dead.
At mile 22 I wished I was dead.
At mile 24 I knew I was dead.
At mile 26.2 I realized I had become too tough to kill
