I have always been a runner…at the age of 11 I used to run cross country for South Manchester, my best was to come third out of 700 runners in a north west championships. School and work then began to take over but I managed to continue running but not as much.
In my early thirties I got the bug again competing in races from Marathons (best time 3.29) all the way down to 5k and 10k (my best for a 10k at 37 mins, but not as quick now….).
Joining JMC over 8 years ago I found the people that worked here very competitive. It was when Nick Isherwood asked for volunteers to take part in a triathlon that I took part and got the bug. I have now taken part in various Sprint and Olympic triathlons and later in 2o12 will be trying to complete a Half Iron Man.
