In order to keep track of my fitness levels and weight loss journey, I thought it best to keep a record of my weight, race times, and personal best (PB’s) on a yearly basis. The aim of this is to try and be healthier, get fitter and to track my progress along the way. I am hoping in this way, I will keep a better eye on both my weight and fitness levels.

Being 6’4” tall with a fairly large build, I will always be on the heavier side of the scale compared to people who are shorter, smaller and slimmer than me. We all come from different backgrounds, are different shapes, sizes and have different genetic makeup. There will always be fitter, faster and better runners out there, unless, you are one of the world’s champion elite runners. The only person I’m competing with is myself to try and be a fitter, healthier me. Also, to keep the fun in the run and do something that I surprisingly found I really enjoy.
