I thank my midlife crisis for getting me into ultramarathon running.


I've represented my country, recorded competitive results at some of the world's toughest races and set seven records/fastest known times (FKTs). All while consumed alarming amounts of tea and custard.


I'm currentlyworking on a book about it all with Vertebrate Publishing, due out May 2021.


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


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, bimbling 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.


Thanks for reading all that self-aggrandising nonsense.
