I have to be honest I’m not very social on Strava, but everything I do is on there so if you are interested then check it out.

I will put a few discount codes on Strava too!

The pic to the right is me finishing the Elvet Striders Willow Miner Trail Race. It's one of my f...

January and February have been canny. Well, apart from it being windy every day, Cold and most of my running being in the dark… Apart from that it’s been great!

I have been really lucky to be picked as an Ambassador for the Sunderland 10K and Half Marathon. I’ve always...

2017 was my best year as a runner. I have achieved PB's, helped Sedgefield with their cross-country promotion push, found a whole bunch of new running friends at Run Peterlee, stayed fit and generally had a great time. I do like to push myself and go for a PB now and a...

Of all the things to stress me out ahead of the Lakeland 100 I never though my choice of drinks bottle would be one of them. I have the Ultimate Direction bottles that came with my vest, the new mountain fuel soft flasks and the ultra aspire soft flasks.

Well, that is that. No more racing for 2017! I’m glad all the graft is over because I’m battered. My body is okay, but my head is kaput. Constantly thinking about training has wiped me out. Anyway, I will fully embrace the upcoming festive period and fingers crossed I’...

Winter feels like it’s well and truly on us. I don’t mind running the trails at night, but I can’t risk running in Castle Eden Dene when it’s dark. It’s really slippery underfoot and the leaves on the ground hide all kinds of lumps and bumps that could send you flying....

This was my second 100-mile race and my first Lakeland 100. I set myself a goal of sub 24 hours, but that was only because I ran the 2016 Hardmoors 110 in under 24 hours so it seemed like a good target. Failing sub 24 I wanted to be done for last orders!

First off, I’m...

All the training is pretty much done now for my attempt at the Lakeland 100. I've been really lucky and managed to recce the whole route! The climbs really shocked me at first as I'm used to running on the Yorkshire Moors, but it's been great prep for the big day.
