Fire Officer from Birmingham
What can I say, I just love to run. I can remember the first time I ran 10km, it took 1 hour and I thought I was going to die at the end of it. I didn't think I'd ever be able to go further or faster. I also thought this at the end of my first Half Marathon and at the end of my first Marathon. I have ventured into the world of Obstacle Course Racing (OCR) and have completed 20 Tough Mudders and two 8hr events. I like to to push myself to see how far I can go.
MY BIGGEST ACHIEVEMENTS
The realisation that setting your mind to something and believing in yourself you can achieve anything. I have gone from initially thinking I'd never be able to do a marathon to completing 7 of them and improving my time from 4:24 to 3:13. I know PB times are only relevant to me but I always tell people of the mindset. Don't be afraid to try something, if you think you can't then give it a go anyway.
MY PERSONAL RECORDS
MY NEXT GOALS AND PROJECTS
To continue to push myself to see how far I can really go. The dream is to complete the 'Big 6' World Marathon Majors, London, Berlin, Tokyo, New York, Chicago and Boston. I have completed 2 so far at London and Chicago. Next up I will try and qualify for Boston at a spring marathon in 2020.
