Over recent years I’ve (unexpectedly) become a lover of running and regularly take part in events. Canicross with the dog is even better; her joy is contagious and six legs are better than two! I cycle, practice strength training, walk my two dogs, run a community micro-funding project (Southend Soup), support other local charitable groups, and read copiously. In my spare time I’m continuing my philosophy degree with the Open University.
