My biggest achievements

Running Manchester marathon In April 2019 is my single greatest accomplishment to date. Having played team sports for most of my life it’s hard to single out one greatest sporting achievements. But being a volunteer Coastguard rescue officer for 19 years and now the station officer is right up there.I even attended a rescue on the morning of our wedding day, and was almost late of which Debs reminds me regularly.

My next goals and projects

Currently returning from injury Distal fracture of my right fibula in April 21 I’d really like to go sub 2hrs for a half marathon but who knows. I’m going to do some more trail running as this is something I’ve really enjoyed albeit only a few a short races. I’m looking forward to the Asics London 10k where I will get the opportunity to run on the closed roads of London that are normally gridlocked with traffic and I’m hoping to do one of the international Asics meet ups.
