Hi my names Dougie and I’ve been running half marathons for just over a year now, my first being The Great North Run. I’ve now completed six in total so far, 5 of those this year.
I started running because my parents got me into running longer distances and I started to really enjoy it. I’ve improved a lot over the last year, with a PB at the Goodwood Half Marathon.
I’m inspired by many runners, such as Dean Karnazes whom I was lucky enough to meet, Eliud Kipchoge, Shaun Conway, Susie Chan and many more.
I hope to do my first full marathon in 2019 and maybe in the coming years move into doing ultra marathons as well.
