My story

[p]I've been running for over 10 years now and I can say I am absolutely addicted to it. Pick up some trainers, a shirt and some shorts, you can run anywhere in the world. There are virtually no barriers to entry.[/p][p]Always looking for a challenge I've run many 10k races, half marathons, marathons and 50k races. You catch up with my running history on [url=https://www.strava.com/athletes/21493461]Strava[/url].[/p][p]This challenge was inspired by Deena Kastor, Olympic medallist & American record holder at the marathon. As well as New York Times bestselling author, [url=https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B073Z4CXFZ/ref=dp-kindle-redirect?_encoding=UTF8&btkr=1]Let Your Mind Run[/url]. I'd originally set my goal to run faster a sub 50 minute 10k. This book changed my mind and I looked for a tougher achievement, the [url=http://marathondessables.com]Marathon des Sables[/url] (MDS).[/p][p]By chance a charity we work with, [url=https://walkingwiththewounded.org.uk/]Walking With The Wounded[/url], were putting a team together and this is where the journey begins.[/p][p]Known as the toughest foot race on earth the challenge is to run 250km in the Sahara Desert over 6 days totally self sufficient carrying your own food and kit![/p][p]You can follow my progress on [url=https://www.strava.com/athletes/21493461]Strava[/url] and we have [url=https://mdspodcast.com]a podcast[/url] with interviews from previous MDS participants and team chats as we map our training progress across the year. I'll also be taking part in events in the build up to the race, see the list below.[/p][p]I am grateful for any support you can give us and if you are a corporate sponsor that would like to add a little extra please get in touch.[/p][p][b]Support races:[/b][/p][p][url=http://thegbc.co.uk/home/4594398377]Great Barrow Challenge[/url] 50k 20th April 2019 - COMPLETED[/p][p][url=https://www.cumbrianchallenge.org/the-event/routes]Cumbrian Challenge[/url] 32k over 9 peaks covering 1650mtr ascent 18th May 2019 - COMPLETED[/p][p][url=http://www.norwichtriathlon.co.uk/]Norwich Triathlon[/url] 7th July - COMPLETED[/p][p][url=http://www.suffolkrunningcentre.co.uk/]Karate Kid vs Cobra Kai[/url] 21st-22nd Sept 2019 back to back marathons - COMPLETED[/p][p]More to follow...[/p][p][br][/p]
