Welcome to the Home of the fab four

If you are expecting a blog about going on tour with The Beatles you may be a little dissapointed. This Fab Four are made up of 4 regular guys who  all met at a local Stevenage running club.

Jason Scales, Nick Witcombe, Steve Watkins and Andy Prior are the Fab Four, named by some members of Fairlands Valley Spartans running club, but even we are not sure why!

Classing ourselves as beginners, we all started running for different reasons and this blog will follow us through our trials & tribulations of times, injuries, events we have attended, how our training is going, The Cheeky Beer series amongst many other topics.

We have all built from scratch, but now run in local 5ks, 10ks, 10 miles, Half marathons and now we have all completed our first full marathon at London.

In the last 18 months between us we have lost about 15 stone (so there is a missing fifth member) and we all have further timber to shift.

Most of all we hope you enjoy the read.

Virgin London marathon Update

On 17th April 2011, the four all completed the Virgin London Marathon for the first time. Read all about their journey’s to get there. They are all very different, but between them, they achieved what they set out for, 4 medals.

Please take the time to visit our links and read about the causes and if you can support us on our journey a donation would be gratefully recieved.
