Welcome to my Running page.

In 2012, I took up running regularly and was encouraged to participate in my first event, The Queen's Diamond Jubilee Challenge 3k in May 2012.

I typically run 10k+ a couple of times a week around Liphook, Hyde Park, Battersea Park and/or up and down the Thames. I also participate in parkruns at Alice Holt forest.

I've run seven marathons and seventeen half marathons so far, including:
