ABOUT ME

I have gone from fat to fit. In 2007 I was 94kg and not at all healthy. After the death of my father I found endurance sports by entering a Cancer Funrun. I have since lost over 15kg(2.5st +) all as a side effect of the new Endurance Life that I have discovered. I started doing Triathlons in 2010 and although I love running I haven't looked back since that first Triathlon in Blenheim Palace all those years ago. Running is best done after a Swim and a Bike.

MY BIGGEST ACHIEVEMENTS

It's hard to sum up my biggest achievements. There are a couple that are worth a mention.
2014 I became an Ironman on the streets of Bolton. Ironman UK is definitely one of the tougher courses, Swimming 3.8km(2.4M), Cycling 180km(112M) and then finishing it all off with a Marathon it was a really emotional day that I completed in just over 12 hours.
My biggest running achievement was my PB of 3:19 for the Marathon in Kosice, Slovakia in 2016. After a long triathlon season including 4 half Iron distance Triathlons and not focussing on the marathon training at all as I should have it was super awesome to beat my PB.
I did the marathon as part of an endurance challenge, racing 6 events(which became 7 when I added a 25mile trail race 2 weeks later) for Great Ormond Street Hospital raising nearly £3000 along the way. (Link https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/1man6events)
