Diary of an Ultra Runner – blog of the week

Posted on July 17, 2008 by


I began running after watching after watching the Munich Olympic Games (1972) on television. Began by racing with the school cross country team and later began running local road races (10k, half marathon, etc). After a few years of shin/calf injuries I entered the Robin Hood marathon in 2005 looking for a new challenge. Didn’t enjoy it much but after finishing it occurred to me that it wasn’t so hard really and to push myself I needed a completely different challenge
