Welcome to my blog… I don’t update it as often as I should , generally post later than recommended and I’m certainly no professional but I try to keep it light, mildly entertaining, as short as possible… bearing in mind I’m generally reporting on very long runs and hopefully somewhat informative.
This blog enables me to record my experiences, partly so I can remember them at a later date but also so others may learn from my experiences… both the good and the bad.
At the moment it’s my chance to share my journey as I try to complete 12 ultra’s in 12 months in the build up to taking on the Marathon des Sables in 2017. Your can read my race reports here or my kit reviews here.
I’m resigned to being a completer not a competitor but aim to be the best I can be, over the years I’ve tried many things including triathlon and obstacle races but have discovered that it is running ultra distances that I am most passionate about and am determined to get to a position where I am proud of my performances.
As a lover of mountains & wild places I’m never happier than when I’m surrounded nature & all that it can throw at me and yearn for a taste of adventure, this has led me to focus on going long & looking at the tougher options in particular.
I’m proud to be a part of the UKRunChat team, the fastest growing online running community in the UK. Being a part of this community has provided me a great deal of support and inspiration and I have made many great friends along the way.
I was also delighted to be selected as an Ascendancy Apparel Affiliate, I join an eclectic group of people who all have one thing in common, a passion for the outdoors and a belief that ‘adventure is a way of life’ – check out their clothing and use UKRUNCAT10 TO GET A 10% discount.
In my other life I’m a passionate motorcyclist, sometime SCUBA diver, catechumen climber & daily dog walker.
