My self-summary
Back to London after a break doing humanitarian aid work overseas, I’m excited to get reacquainted with everything it has to offer.

I tend to throw myself whole heartedly into the deep end of whatever it is I am doing (whether that be running marathons when I probably ought to stick to park runs, cycling across continents rather than into work, or spending an entire weekend watching a box set when I don't normally watch TV!). Currently I am very much in need of something (or someone!) to stop it from being work that benefits from this trait!

I love to cycle, and rarely get around any other way. I have an embarrassing number of bikes and am sad when it is my commuter that gets the most use!
What I’m doing with my life
I've taken a couple of career breaks, which I mostly spent cycling around various continents (in between working with a medical INGO). It hasn't cured the itchy feet and I still seem to spend a lot of my time wondering whether I should just jack it all in and cycle off into the sunset again.

I seem to have developed a habit of signing up to marathons after drinking too much wine. Every time I do one, I vow to never run again. Shortly afterwards, in some kind of wine induced nostalgic fugue I sign myself up for another one. In the cold light of day I wonder if I ought to give up wine as well as running next time.
I’m really good at
Making tea.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I like to think I'm well read, but the stack of unread books by my bed would suggest otherwise. The only thing I miss about commuting is the chance to read everyday.

I used to go to quite a lot of gigs and festivals, and still really like live music, though am less inclined to pay the stupidly inflated tout fees nowadays. Fave gigs have included Elbow, Goldfrapp, Muse, Radiohead, The good the bad and the queen, The Libertines, Bowie, Morrisey...
The six things I could never do without
my bikes, music, my sister, tea, red wine, escaping to the hills
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why on earth I decided to sign up to another marathon.
What is the least amount of training you can do and not die whilst running a marathon.
What would be worse, giving up wine, or repeatedly signing up for marathons I don't want to run after drinking wine.
On a typical Friday night I am
Catching up with friends over a few pints. Or climbing. Or both.
