The best race of 2017 is a tough one - up there as one of my favourite races has to be the Maverick Somerset event. The Quantock hills is such an amazing location for running. Also on the shortlist are the event at Powys and two from the X-Series - the Peak District and Snowdonia.
My plans for 2018 are to try and do a couple of the X-Series marathon distances which will be a step up in distance for me. Just need to sort out the struggle I always have with the work/life balance.
Other plans for the year are to do the South Downs Way on the mountain bike, have set a target under 12 hours (and not to crash out and end up in A&E like the last attempt..)
Favourite running gear has to be Stance socks, you just cannot have enough of them and also at the moment the Inov8 X-Talon 190 shoes that I have been testing - brilliant shoes, so light, flexible and fast…
