Im in the PB Hunter category.
(I know, I know, the link is just up there anyway).
NOTE: PLEASE PLAY THAT CHICANE TUNE THEY ALWAYS USE FOR EMOTIONAL RUNNING MONTAGES ON TELLY WHILE READING THIS.
I´ve now become mildy obsessed ("obsessed " a word the lazy use to describe the dedicated, though, didn´t someone wiser than me say?) with getting on to the ASICS team and sharing my experiences with everyone.
Though I´ve been into sport for ages, I´m FAIRLY new to "proper running"... having chanced upon entry to London Marathon 2010 I decided to do it properly, followed a training plan to the letter, and in the process, caught the bug we all share (and as well as athete´s foot I got addicted to running).
Love a challenge, need to get to next level. Being shouted at by a coach will help. I need to sort out pacing and stuff. I´m occasionally blundering and incompetent.... but try to see this as an extra challenge to overcome (eg entered the Nokia Coast to Coast run-bike-kayak challenge (over 100 miles across Scotland) without realising I´d entered the Great North Run the next day (whoops), so treated it as a challenge and managed to complete both.... I think that sums me up - an idiot with drive and determination.
Really keen to push personal boundaries and perhaps influence others to do likewise.
I do not have a dog, if I did it would be Tibetan Mountain dog, and would be slightly cuter than Jades. I voted for Jade by mistake (I´m on a confusing Spanish keyboard) so Í need YOUR vote. There´s a Vote Pryde thread in the forums should you wish to probe me, Dimbleby style. That sounds mildly wrong.
THANKS FOR READING THIS!
