On 16th April 2018 I crossed the finish line of the 33rd Marathon De Sables with over 500 hundred people behind me. On the last stage I fell and badly injured my left knee but was still able to finish. Looking back, I find it hard to believe how far I have come with my running.

I attribute my result and success entirely down to one person; Russell Maylin from ‘Action Potential’. Russell coached me every week for 2 whole years leading to to the event. Because of my senior age Russell specially tailored the training with meticulous care and total dedication assisting me through difficult injuries along the way.

I have decided to run the event again on my 70th birthday and will be using Russell again for this. He helped me loose 27 kg of weight and become extremely fit for my age. The relationship between a coach and the client can be a tough one but if you seriously want to cross that finish line then Russell is your best bet.
