I’m an avid distance runner and I’ve been running since 2008 when I was challenged to run the Sporting Life 10km by a friend at work. He didn’t show up on race morning. I ran the race anyways and never stopped running after that.

I’ve run lots of races since then including 14 marathons, a couple of 50km ultras and countless 10km, half marathons and 30km races. I run for fitness and for fun. A run gives me time to think about myself for a while or to enjoy some time with friends as we tour our city.

My racing log is here if you want to see the various races I’ve run since 2008.

You can follow me on Strava if you want.
