|Age or Running Category:||Getting more senior by the moment|
|How long have you been running?||Started in 2004 with a one off shuffle around the London marathon with no intention of running again afterwards.I managed this pretty well until 2010 when I started running again and haven’t stopped since.|
|Why do you run?||Turns out I enjoy it!I like the running through the hills and trails around Cheddar but I also sadistically enjoy the clock watching pavement pounding of road running too.|
|Describe your favourite run:||Long runs along the Somerset levels. It’s a chance have time to watch nature and enjoy not having to do or think about anything else.|
|Do you take part in races? If so what distance/terrain?||Favourite race is a on road half marathon.|
|What is your greatest running achievement?||There are lots but cracking a sub 1:30 half marathon at Gosport 2013 was pretty awesome. I never thought I could do it but encouragement from the club and great coaching from Shane did the trick.I haven’t been over a 1:30 since.|
|How long have you been a member of Cheddar Running Club?||Since moving to Cheddar in 2012|
|Why did you join Cheddar Running Club?||Wanted to meet people from the local area. I also think that the motivation and structure from a club is essential for me.|
|How has Cheddar Running Club helped you and your running?||Having regular training sessions each with a purpose in mind makes all the difference.The club has helped much more than I would have thought especially when you consider it’s quite a small club.
My half marathon time has gone down from 1:35 to 1:22, I wouldn’t have thought this was possible.
|What would you say to anyone thinking of joining the club?||Come along.The club has a wide range of runners and great knowledge of the local trails.|
