My name is Ben Sowden, from Gravesend, Kent and a member of Dartford Road Runners. I’m a runner, I love running and love talking and writing about running. I am also a keen cyclist and enjoy a challenge. I wanted to start my blog to share my sporting challenges and my experiences.
In May 2015 I became a Dad to our first son, Rory Teddy Sowden, who was sadly born asleep at 36 weeks & 4 days. I am also going to use my blog to share our story and talk about our beautiful Son.
In Rory’s memory I’m planning to take on a number of challenges to raise awareness of stillbirth and much needed funds for SANDs (Stillbirth and Neonatal Death Charity).
We have since gone on to have our Rainbow, Rory’s younger brother, Henry Rupert Sowden, born on 27th December 2017 at 36 weeks and 3 days.
