What makes you smile?
Our cat, Willow, trying to eat her own tail, lovable furry psychotic idiot.
Favourite sound in the whole world?
My youngest, Rachel, eating crisps, it's the ultimate combination sound of pleasure and concentration.
Which song gets you on the dance floor?
No song ever written, doesn't happen, won't happen, hasn't happened.
What is your claim to fame?
I once was an extra in Heartbeat with Nick Berry, that was one cold boring day I tell you.
Best concert/show you’ve ever been to?
Coldplay at Stadium of Light was amazing, I still have the light up wristband somewhere.
Favourite movie of all time and why?
Close call between Star Wars and Goodfellas. Standard man answer.
Who is the best celebrity you’ve met and why?
Met Kylie once, thought she was going to be all showbizzy and diva-like, couldn't be more wrong, we all just sat drinking tea with her in the kitchen at work!
What is your favourite thing to do/place to go on Wearside?
My family LOVE the seafront - The International Airshow is by far my local highlight of the year.
Tell me one thing about yourself that nobody knows.
I am actually attempting to write a screenplay, no, really! STOP LAUGHING.
What would it say on your tombstone?
Shamelessly stolen from Spike Milligan 'I told you I was ill!'
TIM IS CURRENTLY TRAINING TO RUN THE SUNDERLAND 10K - FIND OUT MORE AND REGISTER TO RUN HERE.
I tried something this week that I have not done before in my training. Running with others. It's not an antisocial thing, I just train along, around my house, and in the gym. Headphones on, and away I go.
Myself and News Tom who is running with me on May 7th, were kindlty invited along to a SMUFS sessions. (start me up for Sunderland) at the Aquatic Centre on Wednesday.
We got to meet dozens of like minded Wearsiders, all training for the 10K, and best of all, we were coached on the night by Steve Cram. Olympic champion, and world record holder.
We had a nice 1mile warm up over the road, around the Stadium of Light, and then we split in to 5's for a relay race around the building.
Don't ask me how, but we won, it turns out that having Katie Bulmer Cooke in my team was a good idea after all!
I had drank a sachet of Totum Sport just before I set off for the session at teatime, and boy did it help, I kept up with others and even managed a few unbelievable comments from Steve Cram himself! (PROUD MOMENT haha)
Have a good week with your training and I hope to see you on the day, either in front or behind me!
