I've been running since I was 13, at first unwillingly and shockingly slowly at school, then gradually getting happier with it. Plimsoles were soon replaced by the sophistication of Dunlop Green Flash, until, long before they hit the UK market, I bought some adidas shoes in Germany. I ran probably about once a week until my mid-40s, then stopped as my knees were hurting.
Three years after that, I realised the knees had sorted themselves out, and I started running a lot more seriously. Since then, I've run over 13000 miles. I'm too slow to think I'd enjoy doing events , so my focus is on exploring the UK as I run. Thus I am top running-only explorer in Conquercise, well past 3000 zones including most of Greater London, and from Swanage to Cleethorpes and Harrogate. Edinburgh and Plymouth, here I come?
