Prologue for my forthcoming audio book.
Running the Tour du Mont-Blanc was a life-changing experience, I talk about the journey, the adventure and the pull of the mountains in a raw and emotional way.
I talk with premier American* podcaster Steve Adams (known to many as Mighty Blue) about my 2022 run to Land's End on the South West Coast Path.
Steve is an avid hiker having completed the 2100+ mile Appalachian Trail several times. We chat about the reason for my run, the scope and beauty of the the coast path and much more in-between.
*Steve is really a Brit but has lived in the US for many years now.
Ahead of my Treadmill ULTRA 50K I chat with radio presenter Laura James from The Voice.
With the run being on a treadmill, in a busy shopping centre on April 1st it's easy to think it was just a fool - but as Laura and I discuss my reasons for coming up this challenge are not a joke,
In 2022 whilst I was running on the South West Coast Path to Land's End Rachel was hiking the full 630 miles of this beautiful trail.
I thought Rachel would make an excellent guest on Steve's podcast and introduced them, you can hear Rachel's interview by clicking on the Listen now button below.
I headed to The Voice's studio for a catch up with radio presenter Laura James.
We chatted about the Treadmill Ultra 50K I had just completed, talk about where the fundraising money is headed for and explore some ideas for the next challenge!
Being interviewed whilst running a 50K Ultra on a treadmill in the middle of a busy shopping centre was quite the experience. I'm surprised any of my words where coherent - but reporter Lewis Clarke does an excellent job of covering the event in his article.
You never who know who may inspire. Andy's son Fintan has a life long medical condition that adversely affects his immune system. This means he is frequently ill and has spent a significant amount of time in hospital.
Being active and exercising has been very difficult, if not impossible for him.
Despite his challenges, Fintan has drawn inspiration from his father's running.
Fintan and Andy started running together at Fintan's request and have not only completed a 5k but Fintan was able to run his very first 10k with his dad in October.
