I'm married to the beautiful Fiona and have four brilliant children. My reasons for entering 'The Race' date back to 2007, when, at the age of 35, I finally had to accept I was never going to become a professional footballer! So hanging up my boots I swapped them for runners and inspired by my good friend Kevin Hederman, did my first marathon. I caught the bug and have notched up 7 since then.
In 2013, inspired by my other good friend, Derek O'Brien (a fellow Race competitor), I took up Triathlon. I caught that bug and completed the 140.6 Ironman UK in 2014. I'm taking it relatively easy in 2015 with a few Olympic distance triathlons and the Dublin 70.3 Ironman in August. "The Race" 2016 is the big one, a different and brilliant challenge - the very best of luck to all competing and I'll see you at the finish line on March 6th!
