I thank my midlife crisis for getting me addicted to ultramarathon running.

 

I've represented my country, recorded competitive results at some of the world's toughest races, and currently hold five speed records (Fastest Known Times). And I've consumed alarming amounts of tea and custard while doing so.

 

I very much enjoy coaching other runners, and company employees, to reach their potential.

 

I also enjoy giving talks about my adventures and how certain habits and mindsets I've learned can transfer to everyday life.

 

My inov-8 daps are regularly muddied in Britain's glorious South West, especially in the Brecon Beacons and the Cotswolds, where I grew up and now live again. I just love being in the great outdoors, ideally exercising somewhere lumpy.

 

Though I don't have much time for media work nowadays, I'm a journalist and author with more than 20 years' experience of writing for and editing magazines, newspapers, books and websites.

 

I'm pleased to be a member of the Outdoor Writers & Photographers Guild.
