About Me
Got into running when I finished football cos I was scared of getting fat and being at home. I did get fat and leave that particular home but life was nowhere near as bad as it would have been without my friend Mike making me run across fields and such. I was an intermittent runner who needed goals to perform. However, I have run 19,000 miles in 15+ years of running and have a streak (approaching 90) of 100 miles a month as well as 30 odd marathon/ultra finishes.

Current goal:

"The drops of rain make a hole in the stone, not by violence, but by oft falling." - Lucretius
