About Me: I started running August 2012 after i entered my first triathlon. Started as a first stepper and have slowly progressed since. The club is the best thing I've ever joint, everyone's friendly and full of advice if your willing to ask for it. It doesn't matter what level of runner you are there's always someone at the similar level. I've done several half marathons, finished London marathon in 2016 thanks to the club ballot and I've also completed an ultra marathon. Along with the normal 5k and 10k races but I seem to enjoy the longer races more than the short and sharp. As long as my feet will keep moving I'll keep going, I've fallen and been injured in races but still manage to complete them. I enjoy triathlons just as much as running ❤️

About Me: I first started coming to the club as a kid with my parents when it was based at Barking Rugby Club. I joined officially in 2001 to prepare for my first marathon the following year (London, 2002) which I trained for with my uncle Bob and the legendary Alan Potter. Sightings of me at the club since are about as rare as a sighting of a Siberian Tiger. My preferred distances are 10k / 10 mile / 13 mile although I have only competed in 2 x Half Marathons (about 6 years apart) and I haven't competed in a 10 mile event since Harlow in 2001. The same could be said for 10k's, but those are the distances I enjoy running when I manage to drag myself out. I'm not particularly great at keeping track of times, but those that I know are listed for anyone interested.

Personal best times: 10K - 38:41 (c 2002) / H.Marathon - 1:33:58 (2014) / Marathon - 3:33.34 (2015)

About Me: I started running in my thirties, FLM 2005 being my first event. That was a run/walk/"Why am I doing this?" kind of day, but I crossed the line. A great experience that has led on to me entering some memorable events. The last few years have been a bit erratic, but I still get out for a few miles when I can.
