Editor The Fell Runner
Webmaster Athletics weekly
Designer Realrunner.com and British Runner Magazine
"I love to run. In the mornings with the dogs, at lunch time to get away from the computer, in the evenings with my running club or even at night on the fells, with intrepid friends. I usually run just once a day though!
"Originally from Austria, I came to live in the Lake District in 1990. Always in love with the mountains, the local hills and fells have since been my favourite ‘playground’. I spend much of my spare time exploring the hills – no matter what the season or the weather – always accompanied by my two Border Collies.
"While the fells and trails are my first love, I have also completed ten road marathons, before moving up to ultra events. My biggest achievements to date are completing a Bob Graham Round, the Himalayan 100 mile stage race, the Ultra Trail du Mont Blanc race and winning the Lakeland 100 in 2010."

“During the week I run early in the mornings in the forest with the dog off the lead. It’s the best way to start the day and it also means the dog is happy spending the rest of the day sleeping when I am making calls and sitting in front of the pc. Where possible I look to get a long run in on Sunday so I can justify an afternoon on the sofa eating pizza and preparing for the work week ahead.”

Highlight – Getting out to races and seeing the fun and the pain of competing at all levels and conditions!
"Combining a very busy workload on run247.com and getting back into my training means that I have a full-on week. The finisher of quite a few half marathons and shorter distance races I am looking to get out and about at more great races this year and meet as many of you as I can."

6-time marathon finisher
Highlight - Sub-3 hour London Marathon / Two Oceans Ultra (Cape Town)
"I seem to have been running about in various forms since a young age. Starting with rugby and football, I tried most sports at school before finding my ‘home’ in triathlon. I’ve always included lots of running events in my schedule, even when triathlon events were my focus. Running is such a great sport and you can be out of the door and into the fresh air within minutes. I need to remind myself of that when I spend (yet) another hour in front of the PC screen.
"I really enjoy all aspects of running, from chasing PB times, splashing through the mud in a winter cross country event, killer treadmill intervals or simply a relaxing run through the park, chatting with friends. And if it finishes with coffee and cake, all the better!
"It’s been a fair few years since I set a PB, but like most of you out there, I haven’t given up hope yet..."

The Run247 Logo
Run247 is alive. Yes I said it, alive, the logo is alive.
We want you the reader to take and own the logo. Think of it as a pet you don’t have to feed, a friend you don’t need to buy a birthday present for*, a mistress you don’t have to hide. We want you to add running to your twenty four seven life with the use of Run247.
The logo moves as it has life. It will and does go to races. It likes to be seen, touched and talked about. You can put it on your website, print it off and put it in your pocket, tell people at dinner parties about it. Most of all we want you to visit it regularly and use the information it gathers and provides to make you run better, happier and more!
(* Run247's birthday was the 24th July 2009 if you do want to get it something...)
