Below are details of those people/businesses/organisations who have & continue to support me as I strive to run as fast as I can.
Everybody at Charnwood has been extremely supportive from the moment I started with the firm in 2015. Being able to change my hours to an early start/early finish have been a huge help in enabling me to train well in the evenings, together with flexibility around racing commitments have been a big help.
Having colleagues genuinely interested in my running makes a real difference.
Family & friends
Finally, the most important of all – my family & friends! Too many to name, but a special mention to:
My wife Jo who has to put up with me resembling a zombie monged out on the sofa between runs most weekends, endless piles of running kit being washed & generally fitting ‘normal’ life around my training & racing.
Mum & Kini, Emma & the boys – by biggest fans regularly travelling around the country & throughout Europe to cheer me on.
Andy McNeill, my coach for the last four years & the guy cracking the whip! A great help with my progression & another who believes I am capable of further significant improvement. Our relationship works well & Andy’s training methods fit well with the type of training I have adapted to over the years.
Many thanks to Chris Power & Radmoor Health & Fitness for their support in providing me with Gym & Spa Membership to enable me to continue to undertake the supplementary exercise needed to keep me ‘on the road’! Additional assistance through sports massage, Bodpod access & training kit is also hugely beneficial in helping in training & racing.
Thanks to Active Charnwood for their £250 Sports Talent Grant for the 2017 season. The funds enabled me to commit to an early season 12 day training camp.
A much appreciated delivery of several weeks supply of pasta, especially helpful as my culinary repertoire is predominantly Italian influenced!
