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?

Describe your ideal run, ride or swim.
Longish run somewhere pleasantly semi-rural, canal path or wooded footpaths or similar, with plenty of time and a small backpack with snacks. Maybe an audiobook to listen to.

What's your favourite thing about Fetcheveryone?
Joint favourites are the games (WSW, Conquercise, UTMOST) and the people on the forums. It's probably a really good training log too if you are into that sort of thing ;-)

How do you pick yourself up when you need to?
Go for a run? Plus think of one thing I've achieved today, or one way I've helped someone rather all the other things I tell myself I should have also done.

What’s the best bit of advice that you would give to new runners, bikers and swimmers?
Your body's super-power is that it is adaptable and responds to practice. Take it easy, but keep doing it, and you will likely just get better and better.

About Me

I started running Summer 2008. Didn't run before that but also wasn't doing any other regular exercise.
I entered a Cancer Research 10k with seven weeks to go as a challenge to myself to get fit. Not only did it go well, I really enjoyed the training and the race itself so I kept at it.
I occasionally aspire to be a lifestyle runner but I'm just a casual really. When the weather is good I love meandering runs enjoying the outdoors; when it's less good I enjoy the feeling I get afterwards. I like mixing up with games too: I've done Zombie's Run a bit, I admit to playing Pokèmon Go, and closer to home I'm thinking about squares with Conquercise and WSW.
In terms of racing, right now I'm getting a kick every Saturday morning out of slowly improving my parkrun PB for for the year and I do a few events every year to give it some structure. Half marathons are probably my favourite as getting round comfortably is enough of a challenge I don't make myself worry too much about PB chasing and can just enjoy it.
