I moved to Australia from England in August 2009 and took up running at the same time as a way to keep fit. As the mileage has increased and the races have built up, my passion for the sport has grown and grown.
My running goals for the next 5 years are simple – To run consistently, stay injury free, experience a broad range of races in beautiful locations and oh, to run a sub 2.40 marathon.
I have a big love for ultra distance races and this part of running fascinates me. At the same time I am beginning to migrate more towards the shorter events as I look to ever improve over the ultra distances.
I also have a bit of a shoe fetish and I find the latest running gear too irresistible to pass up….
This website was created for 2 reasons. Firstly as a place to record all my races and secondly as a training diary. My hope is the information contained here, as unscientific as it is, provides other runners with useful insight for their own training needs.
We are all an experiment of one and we should listen to everyone but follow no one. What works for one person may not work for another. The beauty and attraction of running is that there are so many theories and training methods out there and the fun is continually experimenting to find out what works best for you.
