Hi ,
It looks like you're using an ad blocker. I understand. No-one likes ads.

But our site costs money to operate, and I need to eat.

Please consider enabling ads for our website, or making a voluntary donation. If you donate, I can turn off the ads for you for a period of time. Average donations are about £3.50 per month, so a tenner would give you three months ad free.

Thanks,

About Me

I enjoy running, simple as that! I'm not fast and I never will be. I run because I can and because I nearly couldn't. On 23 March 2010 I found myself in A&E with “shortness of breath”. I was diagnosed as having “extensive bilateral pulmonary embolus which involved both right and left lower lobe arteries as well as the lingual and middle lobe arteries.” That means blood clots in my lungs - both of them and lots of them! Apparently I was very, very lucky to be alive. PEs are the third most common cause of death in hospitalised patients and 30% of people who have a PE will die from it. Of that 30% who die, 70% were not diagnosed, usually because they presented with non-specific symptoms. 10% of people die within the first hour of diagnosis.

There's nothing like being told if you move you could die to motivate you, so I am very happy to be alive and very happy to be outside with the wind, sun or rain on my face and to just run.
