How long have you been running and why did you take it up : Running since April 2012 , got my first Labrador dog Bumble in 2010 and started walking with her eventually leading to jogging between stops for a John Player Blue !

Favourite thing about running : Endorphins and feel good feeling after any run. Tuesday Track night Eagle AC , Doheny and Nesbitts after DCM

Favourite race distance to run. Marathon (because it’s not all about running ! )

What is your main goal for this year? Climb Carrauntoohil so I can find my way to run up it

Best race / most memorable race: ( First time going Sub 3 in DCM '17, NYC marathon 2018 - Unreal race, atmosphere , course , the lot!

Something most people may not know about you : I’m on Strava!

Biggest Heroes : Growing up Roy Keane / Sonia O Sullivan . Now - Sonia O Sullivan!

Advice for someone taking up running : Over 40 - go easy , under 40- go easier, you’ve got time! Join a club or group for social running, miles fly by and add up far easier with company!

3 things you’d take with you to a desert island: Original answer - My wife Jacqueline , my two labs Bunch and Buffi and their Couch - non negotiable! Updated by Jacqueline to say my NB, Garmin and phone for Strava.
