I have now been running since May 2008, and in training as a triathlete since August 2008. I've ran on-road and off-road, I've had an off-road duathlon and a great triathlon down in the New Forest. I'm lucky enough to be able to do training runs along the Thames near Hammersmith where I live and work, and to do cycle training in Richmond Park.

One of my goals for 2009 was to do much more open water swimming, which I've definitely achieved - while London Fields and Tooting Bec lidos and Oasis pools aren't particularly wild, Serpentine Lido and a lake near Staines are a bit wilder! Also had a good long distance swim in the sea during my honeymoon in Greece.

Recent race results can be seen in the top left corner. Goal for 2010 are to complete Ironman Switzerland in a time that reflects that I'm making a serious effort training for it, but that I'm not a natural athlete (the top end will finish near 8 hours, the cut-off is 16 hours, I'm realistically likely to be nearer the latter).
