I'm James - My friends call me James ‘Curly’ Williams.
And I run far.
So, now you know why I call the site JamesRunsFar :-)
This page will tell you a little more about me and how JamesRunsFar.com can help you achieve your goals.
What Do I Believe?
I believe that to make the most out of your life, you need to ‘Explore your limits & Explore your world’.
But what exactly does that mean?
Explore Your Limits
One of the best feelings you have is when you achieve something that you never thought was possible. Whether that’s…
Completing a 5k race or an Ironman event
Getting a new job
Learning a skill that you thought you couldn’t do.
Explore Your World
And when you start pushing past your limits, you open up a new way of thinking about the world. You realise that…
You’re in more control
You have more influence
You enjoy challenging yourself
Why Have I Created JamesRunsFar?
I think that one of the best ways to explore your limits is to test yourself physically.
This means attempting to push yourself to do things that you never thought were possible.
With JamesRunsFar, I hope to do two things:
1) To Inspire you
I want to inspire you to push yourself past your own limits.
That could be attempting to break a world record.
Or it could be attempting to break your own record, like a PB.
2) TO inform you
The site is full of tips, advice and tools that I've used on myself in over 10 years of training and seen others use as well.
Some of the most useful articles to start with are:
