About Me

I started running in July 2007 to get fit and lose weight after deciding to join a couple of work colleagues and run the local 10k (West Pinchbeck 10K 30/09/07). Joined a local club (Sleaford Town Runners) soon afterward which has been a great help.
2008 my first full year was overall good with 6HM (should have been 7 but dnf on one due to injury).
2009 my first attempt at a marathon FLM :-), didn't go to plan but did it :-). 2009 finished with 19 races, pb's at all distances except 10miles. 1st half of 2009 was better than second half, finishing with injuries.

2010 was plagued with injuries, but finished with a good HM

2011 I have a plan focusing on HMs, but mainly to stay injury free - did 5 HMs and apart from flu and couple of weeks with dodgy knee was all positive

2012 VLM - my second marathon - nervously scared. Plagued with ITB issue during training and the race leading to straining my foot and taking 1hr 37 mins for last 7km, but I finished and a big THANKS to fetchpoint. Finished year with only 5 races but some serious distances Marathon, 20 mile, 2 HMs and 10km off road. Finished year with an injury... typical

2013 4 HMs including 3 new races, plus quickest times for HM and 10km since 2009

2014 goals - to survive VLM (done 5:50), to do more parkruns (target 12 - 1 per month) - didn't achieve parkrun targets

2015 goals - Target 6 HMs plus some other challenges. PB at 15 miles, first PB since 2009 and picked up a 5km PB... amazed!! :-) Also achieved 7 HMs :-) :-)

2016 goals - My 4th Marathon (Boston UK), so hoping for a PB ( Medal! achieved a 17 min PB). Other targets will be targeting 6 HMs again and maybe a sub 2 hour attempt (Mablethorpe or St Neots). 7 HMs done and not just a sub 2, but a PB at St Neots 1:58:07

2017 goals - Become an international Aflete (Barcelona HM - done). 20 mile PB attempt (big fail) and usual various HMs
