The Tubby Runster - The Road To London 2020

Do you like tubby blokes? Do you like tubby, middle aged running blokes? Do you like watching people suffer?

If you can answer yes to all of those questions, this could be the blog for you. After an injury at the London Marathon 2015 (and the subsequent struggle to reach the finish) saw me retire from running after 5 marathons, 2019 has seen me sign up to do it all again.

Am I stupid? Will I triumph or will I fail? **** knows, but I'll record the whole car crash here for your delight. Come along for the ride and follow me on Insta (@tubbyrunster) to see how it all pans out.
