At school I competed at county level in x country and 1500m track event but did not run again after leaving school.
I started running again in June 2009 and joined Quakers Running Club. This was for an alternative to the gym and more of an intensive to train for the Great North Run which I was running for the 1st time. The Great North Run was an event I had always wanted to do.
After numerous PB's and massive improvements is various distances and terrains, I went on to run my first marathon in May 2010 at Edinburgh. I am currently(2014) now training for my 8th marathon, a sub 3:00 at next years Virgin London Marathon.
