I started running during the first Covid-19 pandemic lockdown in 2020. Initially, I followed the Couch to 5k programme and have since developed my running further since then. In early 2022, I joined Lliswerry Runners. In addition, to training with the club, I am now also a member of the club committee.

I'm an alright runner. I've been pleasantly surprised, but it is all relative. At every event there are plenty of people who are far faster than I am. Sometimes I do aim to break a personal best time but if one is always focused on that they will miss out on a lot of the joy and experience of running. In December 2022, I took on the non-competitive personal challenge of running the length of the Bristol and Bath Railway Path. It is around a half-marathon in length. This approach to running combines training with a bit of exploring and sight-seeing. I'm keen to do more of this.

What follows is largely a log of running events largely for my own interest, but I thought I would share it here.
