Hi ,
It looks like you're using an ad blocker.

The revenue generated from the adverts on the site is a critical part of our funding - and it's because of these ads that I can offer the site for free. But using the site for free AND blocking the ads doesn't feel like a great thing to do, which is why this box is so large and inconvenient. Some sites will completely block your access, but I'm not doing that - I'm appealing to your good nature instead. Did you know that you can allow ads for specific sites, whilst still blocking them on others?

About Me

A little portly, fairly slow and running to be slightly less of both.

I started running with five minutes on a treadmill, then gradually worked up to 10k and from there to half marathons. I've now done five of the buggers, to the amazement of friends, family and myself. I am now training for my first ever marathon in Paris, with the aim of finishing and enjoying it. I don't think I've ever thought of myself as the sort of person who would enjoy marathon training, but I am.

When I finish my first marathon, I think it'll be time to try and work on my speed. I promise.

Update May 2012: well, I kept my promise, eventually! Went on a big diet/running/exercise regime in 2011 to combat my weight issues (which I wrote about in the Guardian - read here if you like! guardian.co.uk

Since then I've had big PBs in the Marathon, half, 10k and 5k. More importantly I just enjoy running more. It amazes me what my body can do, given half a chance. Now I have two aims- to improve by staying fit, running better and keeping weight down, and just as importantly to keep the enthusiasm for exercise- so I might try a few different sorts of events, like small events, trail events and, over the summer some short, painful races!
