Tell us your name. Dave Prince
How and when did you first start running? Probably 1984ish I entered a 10k with a mate form school.
What brought you to Nidd Valley? Mrs Prince got involved and I went along with her to an awards dinner. I spent all evening talking to Alan he seemed like a lovely and interesting guy. I was running events anyway, I thought I might as well wear a vest.
When did you join Nidd Valley? Not sure 2013/4/5?
What is your favourite running music? Genre or specific tracks? Sound of my heart in my ears. Running with music is wrong and will be banned when I am king.
What is your favourite food before and after running? Bacon before, chips and beer afterward.
What is your best running tip that you would like to share with us? Trying hard is easier than training, but not as successful a strategy.
What is your proudest moment in your running career? Beating Phil Ventress by virtue of superior pint drinking speed on the Charlesworth Chase. If more events finished this way I would do better.
What are your running goals? I really don’t have any race goals at the moment. To try and remain injury free and keep enjoying what little I do.
What event are you training for at the moment? Nominally the Turner Landscape but “training” is massively overstating my efforts.
