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. A couple of years later, with several other races (including a couple of marathons) behind me, I think it is safe to say that I am "a runner" :-)

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.

Current Status

Enjoying it.(As I write this I'm especially the good weather but generally just pleased it's not dark all the time and I can run when I want!)Enjoying Who Squares Wins at the moment and working on getting my parkrun times back down to last year&
