Don’t compare yourself with other runners, be inspired by them.

Right now this section of the site offers stories and achievements of runners who have inspired me.

From individuals that have smashed their PBs, run 100 marathons or those who just run to help with their mental health.

So many different runners have inspired me to keep running and keep training smart to achieve my goals.

I will do my best to add new runner stories each week. If you know of a friend or colleague with an inspiring runner story then please feel free to share. I’m always looking for new sources of inspiration.
