About Me
Started running 07 after a nasty mountain bike accident end of 06 (a week in hospital and a spot of plastic surgery) put me off mountain biking. (See for gruesome detail!) Decided running on 2 feet couldn't be as dangerous! Edinburgh Marathon 08 was the goal. Joined a club, did some training, got injured, got physio'd and fixed. Did it in 3:42. Pleased with the time. Loved the experience. But most of all I love the feeling of running, the camaraderie of the club and the lovely, lovely land of fetch. You are all wonderful! heart *Update: Fetch Festive Calendar wanted an update. Errr, I'm not a parsnip. There you go.

Fetch (provisional) Fun Five:

* In training or on the bench?

- No injuries for a while. Hope I don't jinx things!

* Next Big Challenge?

- No big challenges. Windermere marathon May 2020, won in Rents' Brathay ballot will give me training focus.

* Long Term Goal?

- To run until I'm 99 and avoid injuries

* Biggest obstacle to overcome?

- Age and frailty? Horses? The lure of a couch and pipe? Working obligations getting in the way of training and fun? Actually no, biggest risk is doing too much, too hard and breaking!

* How are you feeling? Happy :-) Obv heart

What's your favourite thing about Fetcheveryone?
Oh, where to start? Great community of inspiring people. Possibly one of the most consistently helpful and supportive groups ever. Irreverent but often smart and knowledgeable too. The tools, stats, race directory etc. are pretty brilliant too. :-)
