ABOUT ME

Along with travelling, family and work, running plays a big part in my life. 2019 has been a strong year for me, completing my 'Double Dragon' challenge - 'The 9 Dragons', Hong Kong and then 'The Dragon's Back Race', Wales. The biggest race was no doubt UTMB TDS. It was my second outing but first on this new course. My first year as an official marathon pacer, flying the 3hr 45min flag. On Monday's and Friday's evenings, I'm also one of the run leads for the ASICS London Run Club.

MY NEXT GOALS AND PROJECTS

Well, 2020 caught us all with our trousers down. With so many things cancelled or postponed (for the right reasons), I took a few months off running and now with the slow emergence of a few low key races, I have managed to book myself in a few to gain focus to run and train (See Upcoming Events below). Have been keeping my runs local but have ventured to further trails in moderation and with essential protective gear. Here's to a better 2021. Qualified UK Athletics CiRF and LiRF.
