ABOUT ME

I am a keen runner living in the South East of the UK, I have been running now for over 20 years and as a child I was very anti fitness and exercise and never did well at school in any sport and was slightly overweight. As I was growing up my dream job was to become a firefighter and I quickly realised to enable me to succeed I would need to get fit, I started running as I was told this was a great way to achieve this level of fitness needed to do a physical job. I entered my first local half marathon in 1996 just to see what it is like and with very little training I completed it in a respectable 1 hour 48 mins. In 1998 I succeeded in becoming a firefighter where I continued to run and keep a high level of fitness and I chipped away at knocking off seconds at each event I entered.

MY BIGGEST ACHIEVEMENTS

Running for Great Britain Masters, Getting Championship entry for London Marathon & Winning the London 10km in Feb 2017 in a field of 17,000 runners
