Daz's Tasty Treats
I am a Dad of 3 and husband to my wonderful wife Dee.
My running started when I stumbled across parkrun and I loved it. I wanted to improve my times and so I started following a 5k running plan. I then moved this onto 10k, half marathon and then finally a marathon, seeing me running my first one at the end of 2016. I was now totally and utterly addicted to running. In 2017 I took on my first ultra marathon, followed by my first 100k race. Loving a challenge I am stepping up the distance once again and currently in training for the North Downs Way 100 Miles in August.
I have met so many fantastic people in my short running journey and I hope to meet many more along the way. It is a wonderful inspiring community to be part of and I’m so glad I have found it.
As you now know I love to run but I also love food and the two go quite well together. It’s a real pleasure to be able to share with you some of the recipes and treats that I make to reward myself after my running efforts, I hope you enjoy trying them out.
