Describe your ideal run, ride or swim.
It has to be a run - cycles are for commuting, and swimming is for other people! Ideally temp in the low teens, dry, clear, no wind, and on tarmac! Ideally with trees/rivers around rather than urban landscape - so the cycle track of York work well!

What's the biggest challenge that awaits you?
Currently, 65% WAVA in the Yorkshire Marathon this year. I need to stay on track... Longer term - keeping my speed/pace up as my age increases!

What's your favourite thing about Fetcheveryone?
All of you! Forum discussions, and the thread of humour that runs through so many of them.

How do you pick yourself up when you need to?
Slowly. (I'm quite good at falling over!) And normally - a run, pray, relax and breathe...

What’s the best bit of advice that you would give to new runners, bikers and swimmers?
Take it easy. Don't try to do too much too soon. And find something you like doing, use it as a benchmark, and keep coming back to it to prove your ability.

About Me

Running Grandad, built for comfort, not for speed! But determinedly bucking the belief that aging=slowing (at least for a few more years), using the additional leisure time from part time working to do more/better training!
Can be found cycling gently to work, or (more likely) mimbling around the streets and cycle paths of York.

100th parkrun completed in Jan 2020 :-)
