2017 Race Results

After an amazing year of running in 2016, it was always going to be difficult to follow up and maintain those great results in 2017. Unfortunately, the past 12 months have not gone as well as I had hoped, but I still managed a couple of good results early in the year. As we head into 2018, I hope the injury niggles are behind me and I’m determined to get back into some form.

Here’s a look back at my running results from 2017…
