When did you join?: 
11/2012
What's your favourite running surface?: 
Road
How did you start running?: 
I have always run, as I played football since I was a school boy, so I was always running as part of training. I started taking it seriously when I entered my first marathon in 2010, My times were OK, but when I started to train with Lliswerry, with their structured sessions and training plans, I became quicker and got more out of my running and haven't looked back since.
Any message to newcomers?: 
Lliswerry Runners didn't get the nickname 'The friendliest running club' by chance! Whether you're running 12 min/m or 5 min/m,the help, advice and encouragement you will get from both the coaches and other runners is second to none.
