Joseph Conlon

me, myself and I...


I enjoy putting one foot in front of the other in a repetitive fashion. I started running regularly around the beginning of 2009 and discovered I was good enough to make putting in some effort fun.

My currents PBs are 5k 17:50, 5M 28:52, 10k 36:30, HM 78:25 and M 2:51:45.

My full running profile is here and from January to April you can sometimes find me online here .


Once upon a time I used to play lots of chess (see this!). When other boys wanted to be professional footballers I wanted to be a professional chess player. My ECF (English Chess Federation) grade history (peaked at 205) can be found here and the history of my FIDE rating here ( a very dormant 2211). It's not as good a game as physics though.
