The mid-week running guide:

Welcome to Stuart Lindsay

What type of running have you done already?

I am definitely what you would call a social runner. I began running in 2004 when I responded to a request from Guide Dogs for London Marathon runners. I have since run the London Marathon again, the Great South (four times), the Great North and the Great Manchester, all for Guide Dogs.  Plus 2 more Marathons, over 15 halves and lots of 10ks and 5ks.  My favourite race is the Great South; I love running through the Naval dockyard and old Portsmouth before finishing along the windy seafront in Southsea.

How long have you been a Volunteer for Guide Dogs?

I have sponsored the puppies for over 10 years, but only became a full volunteer around 2016 (although I  am not entirely sure of the date, my volunteering card says it expires in 2022). 

How did you become my midweek running Guide?

I have been looking to run as a Guide for many years. In lockdown I reached out to Guide Dogs to see if there was anyone who needed a Guide. I am a very consistent pace runner so felt sure I could help someone. I am also hoping to be trained as a MyGuide when allowed. 

What do you hope the benefits will be as a result of supporting me?

I hope to learn how to be a good Guide from David and Cliffe so I could help someone else. It is also a great midweek work out for me.
