THE esteemed editor of the Thurrock Enquirer had a road to Damascus moment at Christmas. We won’t go into details but it meant not being fit enough to run to the kebab shop in Stanford.
So, Neil Speight said ‘No mas” and got on his bike and started training and training and training.
Three stone later, he is a changed man.
Neil is taking part in the Thurrock Cycle Marathon on Sunday June 8th in memory of his good friend, Ian Woodcock.
