Just as I have found a few websites and blogs from other people I thought I'd try and write down here anything and everything that I have found useful in preperation for the MDS, just in case any of you out there are thinking of signing up somewhere along the way. I can't guarantee it'll be any use but I like to think I helped some one along the way :0)
P.s Hopefully I ain't just gonna bore people to death!

- I’ve never been one to turn down the chance for adventure, the biggest and most rewarding one so far was starting a family with my (very understanding) wife! We have three kids, George, Gracie and Evie. All of whom put me to shame with their energy and enthusiasm! I've always preferred the chill of the mountains, either climbing up them or snowboarding down them, until I took up running, after a serious on-duty injury, to disprove the ‘shouldn’t, wouldn’t, couldn’t’ attitudes I found many people have. Discovering the fun in exploring places and getting to know them by traveling through them on foot has got me into some interesting events in the past; multi-day mountain marathons and ultras, long distance paths and national trail traverses, 84 miles of Hadrian’s Wall, Welsh 3000 and completing the MDS in 2010. Next up Beacons Ultra and a return to the MDS.
