I started running 5 years ago having got fed up of doing sponsored cycle rides.  Looking for something else challenging to do I saw an advert for the London Marathon and applied.
I failed to get in to the London Marathon, so I then entered the Potteries Marathon.  I have now completed the Potteries 3 times.  
Last year I was unable to take part in the Potteries due to illness, so instead I took part in the Berlin Marathon.
My finish times so far have been very slow as I have not trained properly for any of them.  However this year I am making a concerted effort to train.  I am also hoping to complete as least two marathons.
