The Great South 10 Miles 22nd Oct 06
Japan Oita Marathon 29th Oct 06
New York Marathon 5th Nov 06

The Great South 10 mile Road race Portsmouth:
Hurricane, winds and heavy rain not the best of conditions for racing! 4 miles in I took the lead, 7 miles in I got a flat tyre, but with 3 miles to go I kept pushing thinking I could still win! However, I got caught at 9 miles and had to settle for 2nd place!

Japan Oita Marathon - largest wheelchair marathon in the world – 400 competitors!
The sun was out, but there was a very strong wind. I was with the second pack until 20 miles, but I just wasn’t in good enough shape to keep the pace! Pushed the last 6 miles on my own and finished at 1hr 41 min 32sec - 2mins slower than last year.

New York Marathon - The toughest wheelchair marathon in the world.Bad road surfaces, long hills, steep bridges and very, very fast down hills with right angle turns; topped off with really bad cambers! Really cold, but the sun was out. 50 metres into the race got stuck behind a crash! Eventually got going over the bridge. Caught up with two athletes and we were together for the whole race, but they sat behind me and I did all the work! Finishing in a time of 1hr 52min 16sec - 13 minutes slower than last year!
