Nick’s Seeker Story
“My running story and reasons have changed so much over the past 35 years… the boy who wanted to be the best, who was inspired by Coe, Cram & Ovett to the guy who now runs nearly every day in the countryside, mountains or stunning city routes, finally with his eyes, ears and senses open. I choose to run to experience the places, locations and personalities I visit. This is combined with lots of road and mountain biking these days and regular visits to the gym to stay strong. The knees may moan but the feeling of freedom, fitness and excitement during and after any run or workout has never dropped. If anything, now I am slower I have finally grow to realise the true joys of my own running and why we all do it. I chase times and results through those I coach daily, but I chase experiences and smiles through my own running these days… perhaps I am finally at peace with why I choose to run.”
