About Simon
Charmingly bald, athletically overweight, with a fine grey beard, I appreciate how lucky I am and try not to take anything too seriously.

Racing achievements
None to speak of, but that is going to change, oh yes.

Run 7 marathons, wife hasn't divorced me, kids quite like me, and climbed Mt Kilimanjaro.

Family
Wife Nicola, daughter Emily, son Oscar, dad Richard, mum Sandy, brother Andy, sister Catherine and various extended family in USA, Norfolk & West Mids

What's the best thing about racing
The adrenalin buzz, seeing yourself improve (slowly), the camaraderie amongst the racers.
