About Me

I started running after giving up smoking January 13th 2007, I literally couldn't run up stairs. My main motivation was the fact that my Sister was terminally ill and focussing on running made me feel a little less helpless. I ran the Paris marathon in April 2008 and have raised over £5000 for cancer research uk. I absolutely love running - it has given me, in bizzare twist, my life back - obviously i no longer smoke and I gave up alcohol (recognising the extent to which I depended on it) on November 14th 2008 and consider myself a better human beng for being part of this lovely community and fantastic sport. Thank you for reading this x
UPDATE 26th MArch 2009 - My poor sister died today after a horrid and painful battle with cancer. please please please let her rest in peace
UPDATE May 2010 - Well over a year since we lost Karen. Dad's health is an ongoing woryy and Mum is a broken woman. Hope and pray for my parents remaining years to be healthy and free from heartbreak.
UPDATE OCT 2012 - still running, still loving it, still super motivated, OLDER :-)
UPDATE DEC 2013 - still running, still loving it, still super motivated, PB's down from mile to marathon this year. OLDER!!!
UPDATE APR 14 - smashed pb at Taunton Marathon, Reading Half and Rhyll 10 so far this year :) ON IT!!. older
UPDATE MAR 2015: Finally somebody who doesn't trivialise my alcoholism, or alcoholism in general. If i was addicted to heroin would people joke about chilling out with a hit or two? Nope didn't think so. Anyway I am just so so happy. Karen would have turned 50 this week and she is still missed like crazy yet in smeways she has waited and waited as if she knew that happiness was just around the corner before she released me into the arms of the woman I love. Now then, Taunton Marathon next, then Windemere on 17th May, just need to find something amazing to do on the 16th........
UPDATE JUNE 2015 Well well well - after the most fantastic beautiful whirlwind romance, the woman I love agreed to marry me and off we went to Gretna Green. Leading up to it, she did the South Downs Way 50 and I broke the 'Good For Age' barrier at Taunton.
Happy. No, REALLY!
Update Sep 2020. Happy. Happier in fact. Definitely transformed from chasing 'good for age' to ploddy traily ultra runner.

Current Status

happy. no really.
