Runner

From the depths of Peru our very own Paddington Bear, if slightly taller and err… less bear like, moved south from fighting it out in the chaos of Lima, but still trying to escape whenever he can...

Born & brought up in the Lakes, I've been into the mountains since I was a nipper. Moved house 29 times (gypsy blood?). Currently residing in Arequipa.

Predominantly a (pretty average) fellrunner, but never really set the world alight.
Have been dining out on my Bob Graham Round for way too long now, but enjoy coming up with all sorts of quirky adventures when I can. Been dodging injuries and keep continually trying to get properly fit again in the mountains of Peru.

Good coffee, mmm...
