Rich Lord – An unlikely runner, blogger, and selfie fan.

Rich came to running in his mid 30s, and whilst no-one can accuse him of being your archetypical running shape, he has repeated defied expectation with his determination, passion, enthusiasm and desire to achieve. Described as an inspiration, a great motivator, and someone who wears his smile through the miles, Rich enjoys passing on his love for running and enjoyment of living an active life to others who want to enjoy their social running too.

Rich enjoyed a number of years managing and coaching amateur rugby league prior to starting running and received a number of accolades for his pioneering approach. Now Rich has turned to running, he has great hopes for others to enjoy their energy, realise their abilities, and to believe in what is possible with a little hard work and desire.

Rich’s inspirational e-book How A Fat Sweaty Santa Became A Marathon Runner is rated 4.6*/5* on Amazon and is well worth a read.  

How A Fat Sweaty Santa Became A Marathon Runner

Are you on Santa’s nice list yet? 

Is running seeming like something that other people do? Can’t see yourself as a runner? Is the idea of running further than for a bus too scary a prospect? Yes, this is what I thought too. You’re not on your own there!

Would you like to read an uplifting story of how a non-runner took part in a Christmas fun run and ended up starting an unlikely journey that led to becoming a marathon runner?

Want to find out How A Fat Sweaty Santa Became A Marathon Runner? Guess what, I have just the story for you in this e-book I wrote. 

My debut e-book is available to buy on Amazon for just £1.99 and this uplifting true story about making those first few steps running, or waddling is something that I had never dreamt of doing previously. A marathon is a long, long way. Why would anyone want to do this? Read this e-book to find out more. 

What I’d like you to do!
