The Past Is A Foreign Country

Didn't know what to write so chose LP Hartley. I took up running 2008 when I was 41 for no obvious reason took it seriously mid 2009 and joined Rodillian Runners. Got better as you are meant to do won club championship 2010 & 2011 which made me feel almost sinfully proud. Have since then managed to accrue a number of running issues 2013 developed asthma had to stop 2014 built a driveway and developed a hernia so stopped running and august 2015 discovered that when bike meets SUV , SUV wins, broke nose, jaw , cheekbone , eye socket, left hand and tore right shoulder and found my elbow bone could escape the skin that covered it. Have a head full of titanium plates and a scar that looks in a certain light like I have been in a knife fight. Joined Dewsbury because despite living in Wrenthorpe I liked the cut of your jib. When not wearing shorts and bright trainers I read a lot (used to work for Leeds library service in Leeds Prison) and have a music thing which explains most of the titles of my runs on strava. I post my runs as "The King Of Carrot Flowers" which means if you understand the reference I think you have taste. Have a fondness for Pies, haribo and craft ale which will always mean I'm never at my optimal running weight.
