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

About Me

Started running in 1998 in my mid thirties after losing a fair bit of weight (and after spending the early part of my life thinking I was one of those people who "just couldn't run"). Worked my way up to a regular 5K on the treadmill 3 or 4 times a week at a reasonable speed, but didn't realise there were a whole load of races out there that people like me could enter - the only one I was aware of was the London marathon :-) Got bored of doing the same old thing and not improving, so gradually petered out over about 3 years or so. Got old and fat, thought I'd better do something about it, did the 2004 Moonwalk then found a run/walk programme and started back running again. Trained quite hard and lost a bit of weight then ran my first 5K race in a time which appalled me (I went out far too fast then blew up of course), got discouraged then more or less gave up again for another year. Trained for and ran the Nike 10K in 2005, but still very slow. In 2006 I entered some more races, lost a bit more weight and got a bit faster which was giving me more motivation, then injured my hamstring which took over a year to fully recover. 3 years later I am still plodding on and struggling with my weight/speed/injuries! One day I'll get there........
