A Bit About Me

Introducing Thoughts From The Road

Welcome to my blog, Thoughts From The Road.

Like many, I never enjoyed sport in school.  I was never any good.

By the time I started college I had already decided that I needed my own sporting challenge.  It was during this period that I started running.

Until this year, my proudest achievement was finishing the Blackpool Half Marathon 2014 in a time of 1:59:52.  I have since run a half marathon quicker, but this was the race where I proved that I could.

In the four years since, I have completed a handful of shorter races including the Bupa Manchester 10k in May 2017.  I have recently achieved my goal of running a sub 50-minute 10k in the Bury 10k 2017 and sheered a single second off my personal best in the Bury 10k 2018.

In April 2019, I ran the Manchester Marathon and it defied all of my expectations.  An incredible day surrounded by fantastic people from Ramsbottom Running Club, I finished the marathon in 4:16:07, it is something that I will never forget.  It is also something that I am keen to build on, the marathon wasn’t a destination but a part of a much bigger journey.  In the coming months, I am running the Bury 10k, Wiggle Manchester Half  and Conwy Half Marathons.  Aiming for a sub-1:50 half marathon in Manchester, I have some serious work to do.

I hope you find something interesting in my blog but ultimately I hope you find it a brutally honest account of my journey, not just in running, but in life.
