I started running for fun early 2013 but quickly became more interested in getting faster.

Spent some time researching different training methods and a healthier lifestyle.

Entered the 2 castles race between Warwick and Kenilworth Castle. It was a beautiful race which inspired me to continue running.

My PBs stand as follows:

1 Mile   :  00:05:45
5K   :  00:20:58
10K   :  00:45:00
Half Marathon   :  01:38:35
Marathon   :  04:08:12

Theres is definite room for improvement and after a strong christmas, maintaining my running I am aiming for PBs across all distances in 2014

Remember :

‘When you walk, one foot is always on the ground. When you run, most of the time you are actually airborne. For example: a 6-foot-tall runner with feet about 1 foot long was found to take 1,250 steps while running 8-minute miles. Thus, while covering 1 mile—5,280 feet—he was in touch with the ground for 1,250 feet and airborne for 4,030 feet.

Put another way, he was in the air for 76% of the time.
So don’t think of it as a 10-mile run. Think of it as 7 miles of flying.’
