In December 2020, it seemed somewhat presumptive to be listing my races for 2021 given that the COVID19 pandemic continues to place so many restrictions on our lives. By lockdown 3.0 in January it seemed a ludicrous thought.
#21in2021 – The Races
Having completed seven events in May and June, a calf injury and a prolonged period of mixed anxiety and depressive disorder stopped me in my tracks. However, after a prolonged period of rest and recuperation, I am back running and completed Richmond Marathon this morning, number 8 of the year.
I’m still a far way from peak condition and form but this year is not about that, it’s simply about getting it done however long it takes!
There remain three races to be added to the schedule so watch this space.

The reasons for running haven’t changed. I am as committed, as ever, to changing lives at a time when so many have been shattered. We can still provide hope for those who have either lost so much or, in some cases, have never had anything to lose. You can find out more about my vision and the charities here.
I really hope to see some of you out there during what will be a special year, and I thank you in advance for your support. You can donate to my #21in2021 campaign by pressing the button below.
