Javed is a running coach who considers himself a pretty average runner and loves learning about all things endurance. Over a 13 month period (2015-16) he completed an ultra race most months, including the Spine Race (268 miles), Hardmoors 160 miles, a double Thames Ring (500 miles), Pheidippides Race (Athens-Sparta-Athens 306 miles) and yet another Spine. This time he turned around at the end, to complete the first Winter Double Pennine Way (536 miles). All were finished with lots of smiles, and without a single blister.
Javed works as an organisation development (OD) consultant. He has long felt that good coaching and mentoring can enable even occasional runners, to discover and develop “the resiliences” needed to complete, improve on, and really enjoy any type of ultra challenge.
