About Me

I first started running in 1983, when at 38 I realised that I was pretty unfit. I've nearly always trained alone. I did my first proper race in 1985 - a 10K. I did a couple of Half-M's, and then the Dublin Marathon at age 50. From then my running was erratic until the end of 2007 when I started running regularly again on a small scale. I'm now 75 - which sounds very old!
On 7th October 2010 I achieved 2 targets (PTL) - sub 24 minute 5k and a WAVA over 70%; in fact I did the 5k in 23:26 and got WAVA score 70.93%.

Since June 2011 I had a problem in left leg with acute pain at times, finally diagnosed as Spinal Stenosis, which has greatly affected my performance. In 2016 I got back a little of my former running fitness. On April 30th I recorded my best parkrun to date, 26:08 - WAVA score of 67.44%, which was my best WAVA for 5 or 6 years. Eventually I hope to achieve a 70% WAVA again, if only through age!

Current Status

I first took up running about 1983. I'm now well into my seventies! My aim is to keep running for as many more years as possible, in order to stay relatively fit. I would also like to get back to 70% in the 5K, which I reached in October 2010.
