About Me

I was born in Cardiff in 1971. Running in my younger days consisted of the standard middle distance track stuff during PE lessons and sports days at school and the occasional cross-country race. Apart from running a half marathon at about the age of 15 and a couple of short fun runs in my 30s that’s the only running I have in my history until I started running parkrun in my mid forties.

I’m married to the amazing Karen and have three grown-up sons. I’m a committed Christian and involved in my local church in Abingdon, Oxfordshire. I also work in Abingdon as a Toxicologist.

I started running at parkrun in 2015, where I discovered a love for running that has developed into running track, trail and road races up to marathon distance. I enjoy competing and social running with my club mates at Abingdon AC.
