Milton Keynes Superhero Fun Run Winner

Welcome to “Richard the Runner”. This is my blog about running.

I hate running.

I have all the gear, but no idea. I’m 52, male, called Richard (obv!) and I’ve been advised by my consultant not to run but to swim and cycle instead as one of my knees has a fair degree of necrosis.

But my bucket list has “run a marathon” on it and I’ve so far managed to enter the Berlin Marathon twice, only to pull out due to injury {sigh} in 2013 and 2014 after my then girlfriend managed a PB around 3:45 (which gave her a “good for age” entry into the London Marathon).

So I’m told I have an automatic entry into the 2015 Berlin Marathon and this is my blog to record my experiences.

Did I mention I hate running?
