Hi ,
It looks like you're using an ad blocker.



The revenue generated from the adverts on the site is a critical part of our funding - and it's because of these ads that I can offer the site for free. But using the site for free AND blocking the ads doesn't feel like a great thing to do, which is why this box is so large and inconvenient. Some sites will completely block your access, but I'm not doing that - I'm appealing to your good nature instead. Did you know that you can allow ads for specific sites, whilst still blocking them on others?

Thanks,
Ian Williams aka Fetch

Describe your ideal run, ride or swim.
A long cruise round the lanes near home, on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales. Lots of views and wildlife.

What's the biggest challenge that awaits you?
2:45 for a marathon, at least in the running world. Might run out of time now I'm 50.

About Me

Dubious and reluctant mid-life (~2011, early 40s) recruit to running, surprised to find it enjoyable!
Got my sub-40m 10k at the end of 2013, followed by a sub-3 marathon at Chesterfield in Sept 2014 and then 2:54 in Manchester 2016 (pic above). Further gradual improvement to 2:51 and 2:48 in 2017 and 18, both at Mancs again. A result of accrued experience and gently increasing mileage. Kept chipping away with 2:47 in 2019 and also a 10k PB.
Lifetime goal of 2:45 still seems just tantalisingly out of reach though, and age will surely catch up eventually. But it doesn't seem as impossible as it felt a few years ago when I had barely broken 3h. I'll keep plugging on and see where I get to. There still should be some PBs to come at all distances unless I get injured...sub-18, 37 and 80 at 5,10 and half are all in sight now.
