My name is Dave. I'm a 35-year old runner living in Oxford.
Having completed lots of half marathons and a couple of marathons in recent years, I thought I'd try a step up to ultra running. I actually blame it on reading motivational books, which always seems to lead me to enter races.
I have entered the Born to Run Ultra, Llanelli, on 31.03.2012, and my training is right on track. I have thought however that it would be great to have some like minded folk to run with, particularly on the long runs when someone to share the experience with and to keep the mind distracted would be helpful. My Google search to-date has drawn a blank, so I thought I'd try a thread on runners world on the off chance.
If there is any one, or group, out who fancies doing a couple of longs runs per months together, please drop me a line or e-mail. I'm no speed demon, I plod along on the long runs at about 8.5 min miles give or take. If my first ultra goes well, I plan to keep it up and to stave off middle age for as long as possible.
Cheers to you all and happy running!
