• Age:57
  • Years Running: 4
  • Favourite race: Either Woodhall Spa 10k because its got just enough changes of scenery to keep it interesting or Wellingborough Multi Terrain series probably because it's the first real race I entered.
  • Least Favourite race: The Louth part of the XC series mostly because I never seem to do as well as I think I should.
  • Why did you start running? I started running after I took one of my sons to do his first 10k and thought the atmosphere was welcoming and friendly so thought I would give it a go. Had previously had knee injuries from too much badminton which I had to stop a few years earlier, so running wasn't an obvious choice. However I think because there is little twisting involved all went well. I joined GRC so that the added bit of commitment and the people I met would spur me on to continue. The exertion of running and being able to meet different people is a fantastic stress buster.
  • Injuries received?: Thankfully none, which is surprising really as I am not the best at warming up or post run stretches.
  • Furthest Distance ran?: Manchester Marathon which I loved but in reality haven't got the time to be able to keep up that level of training.
  • Trainers worn: Without a doubt Saucony, they fit me straight out of the box.
  • Top tip from your experience: If you travel about for work carry your kit everywhere in your car and make time to run in different areas visited. It keeps the interest up.
  • Favourite running kit? GRC 2015 C25K graduation top!
  • How many miles do you run per week? Probably about 15 at the moment. Less than I would like to but hopefully I'll have more time in Autumn / Winter
