Describe your ideal run, ride or swim.
My ideal swim would probably be somewhere warm, with crystal clear waters and where I wouldn't need to bother with a costume ;-)

What's the biggest challenge that awaits you?
Keeping my fitness level the same (or improving it) as I gradually get older (I mean physically of course - in my mind I'm still nowhere near middle-age)

About Me

(29th Aug 2017) Now 'officially' old (since Apr 2017) but retired from full-time work in Apr 2015 - that should have made fitting in the running easier but it doesn't seem to have worked out like that! Started running again in 2007 after a 35 year layoff. Have had various injuries over the last 10 years - had been okay for a while but sprained my left ankle at the end of March. Had a walking holiday in July and after a few treadmill runs, finally ventured back outside earlier this month. I usually manage to bounce back from injury each time but it definitely gets harder each time! Have never tried a marathon - not sure if I ever will. Done several half-marathons but always seem to get cramp problems - hence my trepidation at attempting 26 miles! I'll never be the quickest but hopefully won't ever be the last. Regardless, will keep plodding on until I can't manage to any more.
