About Me

I was a keen track and field athlete in my teens and early 20's - more so in the field (3.50m pole vault and over 4000pts for Decathlon being the achievements I was most proud of). I did not really like running much more than 400m!

For various reasons, I let things drift in my 30's. Then, faced with my 40th birthday and with two active children, I decided I needed to get fit again and running seemed like a good idea...
A few guys at work decided to 'Run 10K' for Cancer Research and I joined them; then I found a 10 miler and a half marathon and started to up my training a bit. I came third in the Bishop's Stortford 4 mile fun run in 2009 (all the good runners were organising the event!) and this led to me attending a few training sessions with the Bishop's Stortford Running Club, which I joined at the end of 2009.
I am a keen mountain walker and in 2010 I was crazy enough to take part in the Lakeland 50.
2011's challenge was to run my first marathon in sub 3:15 at London on 17 April. Well, I ran the marathon, but hit the wall badly in the heat and it took me 3:36. Have to find another one now! But first, some speed work and shorter distance races.
2012 was a year best forgotten with injury problems.
2013 I hope to get back into regular training and upgrade my 10 mile and half marathon times in particular.
