MY DISCIPLINES
Trail run Half marathon Marathon 10 KM

ABOUT ME

My journey began when a good pal bought me a pair of running shoes, and patiently dragged me on walk/run/walk laps of the Emirates Stadium in London. Coupled with being a Northerner that’s too tight to pay for tube, and the answer was obvious: Run to work! Fast forward a few years and many run commutes - I've completed several marathons and lead East London’s finest running crew: the Hackney Rats. Training with them, and seeing them achieve things they didn't think were possible beats any PBs.
