Mizuno Endure 24

IMG_8965New team member. Pete Phillipson

As the new team member to the Mizuno endurance 24 hour team I thought I better introduce and tell you a little about myself. 

As a kid I was always active and tried many sports, football, judo, badminton, tennis to just name a few. It wasn’t till I took up running in 2011 that I finally found a sport that I really loved.

 It started with a few 5k races at the Mount Battern sports centre in Portsmouth and running around my new home of Gosport for the first year. I joining the Gosport Road Runners in April 2012 as I started to get bored running on my own over the same old routes. It is probably one of the best things I have ever done. I gained a whole new load of like minded mud loving friends.

 In the last three and a half years my trainer and medal collection has grown bigger than I could have ever imagined. I had always wanted to do a marathon but never thought I would get round to it, but now I have done 4! I can’t quite believe it. I must say I don’t think I could have done it without the support of the club and great people here on BOSH, plus not forgetting my girlfriend.

 I love runs that are a little different so I can’t wait to tackle the Mizuno endurance 24 hour.
