Starting Gun

This is the post excerpt.

Well, this is it. Welcome to my first, and hopefully not last post. The aim of my blogs will be primarily to chart my progress towards running the Brighton marathon in Apri 2018. This will be the first of my journeys.

There is however a second journey to follow, that of my beloved Brighton and Hove Albion Football Club. The team that, after many travails, have finally made it to the promised land in the English Premier League.

Over the coming months I'll introduce you to the backstory of my running, and to that of the Seagulls (the nickname of Brighton's football club). I'll also endeavour to track the progress of both, and the challenges, pitfalls, and hopefully successes that lay ahead.

For now however, it's time to lace up my running shoes, and to make a Lycra clad spectacle of myself!

For we're the men from Sussex, Sussex by the Sea. We plough and sow and reap and mow, And useful men are we; And when you go to Sussex, Whoever you may be, You may tell them all that we stand or fall For Sussex by the Sea! So says the words of ‘Sussex by the sea’ our county’s anthem. Truth be told however, I’ve never ploughed, sowed, reaped, or mowed in my life! I am however a proud man of Sussex. I’m 50+ (age, not waistline), and far more likely to be found driving a spreadsheet or project plan than a tractor. Interests include music of all types (though punk and indie are my roots), all sports, comedy, food, travel, and of course …….. quantum mechanics, molecular gastronomy, Proustian dystopianism, and exaggerated lying!
