Q. What do you think of the Dedham 10k race and what memories do you have of it?
It is a good hilly course and I was beaten on the line to finish second about 15 years ago.
Q. You’re still a good runner now, but when were you at your peak?
At the age of 43 when I managed my half marathon personal best and won a national 100k event that same year.
Q. When did you run your first race and how many have you now run in total?
I ran my first race in 1982 when I did the Colchester Half Marathon and have now completed 1,550 races!
Q. You have helped many of the Colchester Harriers improve their performances, do you now prefer coaching to running?
I enjoy both, but always like to be competitive for my age category when I enter a race so still have that competitive edge for running.
