About Me

I ran in the London Marathon in 1989 (finishing in 3:48) and my first running career came to an end at about the same time. My second (and current) running career began when my father died in 2006. I decided to raise money for a cancer charity and was fortunate enough to be given a Gold Bond place in the FLM2007 by Help The Hospices.

I was delighted to get round the whole course without walking a single pace - albeit at a fraction over 10 minute miles. This got me wondering whether, nearly 20 years later, I could beat my previous PB.

Since then, the obsession has taken over. One of the highlights has been a 3:12 (my PB!) in Taunton in 2009, which gave me GFA entries for London in 2010 and 2011.

I am now pretty much resigned to the fact that a new GFA time is beyond me and I am finding myself more and more interested in WAVA scores. I am particularly pleased when I achieve a 70% result.

These trail runs are doing nothing for my WAVA score!
