Updated April 11th 2017: Short bio: Male. 43 years old. In second year of returning to competition. Most recent PBs: 5K 18:27; Half Marathon: 1:23:54; Marathon: 3:06:09 I have most recently completed the Bungay Marathon in a time of 3:06:09, finishing the race in 8th place – my best placing in a marathon ever! You can read about my preparation for my first ever vegan marathon here >> https://sway.com/ga5jpbEeXl7sAeWs My next focus race is the Fritton Lake Standard Distance Triathlon on the 18th of June this year. This race consists of a 1500m open water swim, 39km bike ride and a 10k parkland run. I competed in the shorter sprint distance last year and enjoyed the event so much that I wanted to complete the longer race his year. I adopted a vegan diet at the start of January as an experiment going into the new year. I have found that the quality of my diet has improved significantly - with very little inconvenience or cost - and I have to say that I am really enjoying it so far. As it stands at the moment, I am going to be keeping up with the plant-based approach in the future. I’m also a ParkRun regular - both runner and volunteer - at Fritton Lake, just outside Great Yarmouth. I make a point of trying to Kudo everyone who takes part in these events as I believe that they are a hugely valuable vehicle to keep athletes at every level of fitness motivated on their individual journeys. In addition to Strava, I you can reach out to me on Twitter @myt973 . I’ll update this profile to keep you updated with events in my world.
