Charity Registration No. 211015


Over a year ago now I set myself a list of targets to do over 3 years.  Yes, I have it planned for that long…  Last year I succeeded in completing 4 of them, finishing with a double, both running a 10K (6 miles) without walking and completing a PB in the same race, at The London Chest Hospital 10K.  Below is my list of targets.  One’s completed are in red:

Take 4 seconds per mile off my time in 5k, 10k, half and marathon races

Take 40 seconds per mile off my time in 5k, 10k, half and marathon races

Do a 5k in 30 mins, 10k in 60 mins, half in 3 hours and marathon in 6 hours

Run all the way in a 5k, 10k, half and marathon.

For those who’d like to know, the previous best times these targets are working against are:

Bushey Park 5K Time Trial, 28th April 07, 3.1 miles, completed in 36:15
Nike Run London 10k, 8th October 06.  6.2 miles.  Completed in 1:21:36 
Suffolk Beacon Half Marathon (Brighton), 18th Feb 07, 13.1 miles.  Completed in 03:08:04
Neolithic Marathon, 6th May 07, 26.2 miles, completed in 7:00:58 

This year I’m hoping to succeed in running all the way in a half.  I’m also hoping to achieve some of those time targets.

I’m also hoping to qualify for London Marathon with a good for age time by the time I’m 90!

My Charity:

Stroke is the's third major killer, causes more disability than any other long term illness, occupies 20-25% of hospital beds, and kills three times as many women as breast cancer.  Strokes can affect anybody, of any age, including children.  As many as 40% of strokes could be prevented, so please help the Stroke Association educate, support people who've had strokes, research, and campaign for more specialist stroke care.
