And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith - Hebrews 12:1-2

Welcome to Run with Perseverance. This is a space where I will openly speak about my own race, one which has known the deepest joy and searing pain.

Running is a great analogy for life itself, but the name of the site comes from something much deeper. The bible verse quoted above, in so many ways, reflects everything I am and aspire to.

The darkest moments of my race encompassed 15 years living with serious mental illness which led to being homeless and 3 suicide attempts.

However those moments prepared me for a life in which I can give to others through fundraising and awareness raising.

In the same way, it is the dark, cold mornings which have allowed me to run over 30 marathons, a life transforming journey in itself.

Welcome to my life. Whatever your circumstances, I hope you will be inspired to persevere both through joy and challenges alike.

I will patiently be adding content over the coming weeks and months so please do bear with me during that time!

This short film was made by Streatham Central Church for my baptism in 2017. I hope it gives insight into who I am and the significance of Hebrews 12 in my life.

In the meantime...
