More about me
For me running provides a positive focus in my life. I’ve always been a really competitive person and have found running the perfect event to bring that out. I’ve played both football and tennis at a reasonable level but with running what appeals to me is the fact that there are no excuses and no other people to blame.
It would be fair to say I love sport, whether it be watching, coaching or playing. I’ve always been really competitive and am highly driven when it comes to my personal fitness. I got into running 3 years ago with the ambition of completing a sub 3 hour marathon. Last month I achieved a PB of 3hr 6min and realised this ambition was in sight. Hopefully I'll achieve that 3 hour marathon ive been craving soon.
