“THE MORE I ENJOYED IT, THE MORE WEIGHT I LOST”

Tom Wake, 31, a web developer from Kesgrave in Suffolk, set out to lose a bit of student flab – little did he know he’d become an ultrarunner in the process…

Weight-loss hero

Crossing the line at Race to the King

“After a few years at university – during which I rarely exercised, drank too much beer and had a poor diet – I’d see photos of myself on social media and realise I wasn’t happy with what I was seeing.”

Like many young men who suddenly find themselves in Tom’s situation, a picture is often the catalyst for change. “My weight gain had been gradual so I didn’t really notice it until I saw a picture of myself that I hardly recognised.

About Men's Running

The November issue of Men’s Running is all about training smart: whether that’s tailoring your sessions to suit your body type, learning to make the most of your urban environment or discovering the most cost-effective events, this issue is packed with content to help you reach your full potential. Elsewhere, we’ve got some stunning, run-envy inducing destination races. Run-reporter Arko Hojholt travels to the pristine Swiss Alps for the Inferno Half: a half marathon with a sting in its tail. Damian Hall, meanwhile, has been kept busy: first, trying his hand (or feet) at the quad-wrecking discipling of skyrunning, before troubling the crème de la crème of ultrarunning at the Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc (UTMB), the world’s premier trail race. Of course, we’ve also got exclusive kit reviews, tech roundups and inspiring interviews to maintain motivation this winter.
