after suffering for 40yrs wiv Alcohol.Drugs at the age of 54yrs i joined a gym and 5 months later ran my first full marathon..2 yrs after that in 2006 i ran and completed the 150 mile Atacama desert marathon..and completed it. i then wrote my book which is in the top one hundred best sellers list on extreme sport on Amazon uk wiv 70..5 star reviews..altho it wasnt meant to be a sport book..its about my life running wiv the skinhead gangs fighting and into the world of taking drink and drugs…since my book was published i have been on several radio stations, done several book talks one for an ultra running group and also had a recording of me by the BBC life is good now lol
