A bit about me…

I’ve been thinking about starting to blog for a while as I’m interested in entering the media when I graduate from university in 2015.  In September 2014 I will enter my third year at university having achieved a 2:1 in both my first and second years.  The content of my blog will, however, be more focused on my thoughts when I run and occasionally my observations on the English language.  I hope that you find the content that I post enjoyable and I hope that, as a result of my youth, I don’t come across as naive!  That certainly is not the intention.

So, what sort of running do I do?  Well, I’m not exactly the quickest but I’m a long distance runner and completed my first half marathon in Blackpool during April 2014.  The run itself will form one of my first blog posts so I won’t spoil it by giving too much detail here but suffice to say I was happy with my time of just under 2 hours:  1:59:52, those 8 seconds were really important to me.

I’ve completed several 10k, 5 mile and 5k races but my proudest achievement is definitely the half marathon.

That’s enough of an introduction about me though, I’ll be writing my first couple of blog posts in the coming days and I hope that you find some of the things I write about interesting to you.

I’m just starting out as a blogger and a writer so I would really appreciate any feedback that you would be willing to give.  You can either leave a comment under my post or email me at:  barrettconnor94@gmail.com

I hope you have enjoyed reading my first blog post and I hope that you will revisit my blog in future to read more!

One thought on “A bit about me…

  1. Connor, as much as it was enjoyable to read your blog, I thought that however to make it more interesting you could perhaps give detail of what exactly went through your mind at the time of your achievements.
