Describe your ideal run, ride or swim.
I like to run in the off road. Hills, remote places, or country lanes, or the beach. And while I'll happily do runs by myself, it's more fun with friends, isn't it? Fresh air, pretty scenery, exploring new places with friends old or new. :-)

What's the biggest challenge that awaits you?
I've been running for 10 years, so I've done the main challenges that I had: sub 3 marathon; West Highland Way, which is the premier ultra up here in Scotland. I'm hoping to keep running until I'm 100. The challenge is avoiding injury, innit?! :-)

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. :-)

How do you pick yourself up when you need to?
Cake. Chocolate! *cayke* and *chocolate* Seriously, just try and remember how lucky I am, loving family and friends, general health and well being. Others with far greater obstacles, battling daily, still smiling. I never lose mojo for running. :-)

What’s the best bit of advice that you would give to new runners, bikers and swimmers?
Slow down! Seriously, even if your goal is to get quicker, start slower. You can build up volume and speed more effectively if you don't get injured all the time. Build up gradually. Take breaks. But do build. And believe! Great times await! :-)

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 fetcheveryone.com/gallery-showphoto.php?id=19442 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

Current Status

2018/19 Enjoying marathons again - Boston Marathon for my 50th year was fab experience. Managed to squeeze in Cateran 55 ultra too, for fun! Other distances seem to go better when I'm marathon training, so Windermere May 2020 will be ideal! :-) G
