I’ve always been a bit of a runner. I enjoyed it at school, but team sports always took preference.
When my football days came to an end I started running more and more. I have now completed 43 marathons or Ultras and many more half marathons.
I completed my first 100 mile race in June 2017.
In 2011 I joined Burgess Hill Runners and running took on a whole new meaning. Suddenly I was part of a team again and I had the support of a great club.
I could enjoy the solitude of running alone as well as the camaraderie of running and training as part of a team.
In July 2013 I helped to launch parkrun in Clair Park in Haywards Heath. I was Event Director until December 2015 and I am very passionate about parkrun, the ethos and encouraging less able participants to enjoy getting fit.
I completed the LiRF (Leader in Running Fitness) in the summer of 2014 and now regularly lead sessions with Burgess Hill Runners.
Hope you enjoy my thoughts and race reviews and I hope that running is as good to you as it has been to me.
