About Me
Always attracted to idea of distance running (from watching London Marathon) but apart from a single half marathon in my 20s did nothing about it till my forties.
Really got into it then. Highlight very definitely 2008 Windermere Marathon when I was 3rd mv45 in 3:10:50.
Family commitments and injury stopped me running in my early 50s.
Trying for 3rd time to go again, but low key - for enjoyment and personal targets rather than racing.
Still struggling to really get back runing regularly. Thought I'd cracked it but losing it again at the moment. Parkrun has kept me going recently.
Outside running for last 37 years I have been a software developer, working on a CAE system used throughout Europe in the thermal design of satellites.

Married with two children in their early twenties and two dogs.
