I’m Jake. I’m a marathon runner, Ironman, scuba diver and general lover of the outdoors and adventure.
I started this blog to chart my training for the Marathon Des Sables 2016, a lifetime’s ambition and an opportunity to raise money for The Lullaby Trust, an amazing charity doing vital work which is particularly personally important to me. Sadly, a major work commitment unexpectedly took me away from the UK for six months and I had no choice but to cancel. I did discover, however, how much I enjoyed blogging about running and so I have carried on, and also begun talking about some other outdoor activities; mainly hiking, scuba diving and triathlon.
Amongst other things, I’m hoping to turn my love for writing into a way to make money, so I’m also a freelance copywriter in Brighton.
