About Me

The midlife crisis hit me hard. So much so that I took up running. In my twenties I would see runners and think there could be nothing more boring than running. In my forties I changed my tune and I can’t get enough of it.

In 2014 I decided to combine my job in videography with my love of running to create Film My Run. You can follow me on Twitter @filmmyrun

I run to improve my fitness and general well being. I run for the time on my own and for the time with others. I rarely run for a time. I run for the fresh air, the scenery and the freedom. I run to escape the daily grind and my self doubt.

The 10 year plan, in addition to building Film My Run as a business, was to run 100 marathons. I began in 2012 with my first marathon in Paris. I did another in 2013. Then I went a bit mad and ran 9 marathons in 2014. As of July 2017, I have added to the total, which currently stands at 68. I would have liked to run my 100th marathon in 2024 on the 100th anniversary of Europe’s oldest marathon, the Košice Peace Marathon in Slovakia. I don’t think I’m going to make it! You can see my full list of
marathons and ultras completed here

I regularly run parkrun either in Worthing or Brighton. It’s a free, timed 5k race which takes place every Saturday morning. There is one in virtually every UK town these days. If you like stats you can read my parkrun progress here
