You can also read about my self-supported ‘Frodo’ exploits through Europe to Mordor, running Lands End to John O’Groats for Sport Relief, my various running treks through Wales, my winter experience (in June) cycling John O’Groats to Lands End, and my constant battle of trying to do all this with hardly any money to my name.
