Me at Little Stoke parkrun, May 2014
Me with Tia, August 2011

My name is Bob Cox and I live in Stoke Gifford, in South Gloucestershire, near Bristol, UK.

I run Debian Linux on Linksys NSLU2 Network Storage devices and a Raspberry Pi. I also use an Apple iMac.

For reasons beyond me, in 2011 I started to learn to ride my wife's horse. Progress was slow and was punctuated by a succession of aches, pains and minor injuries, mostly due to my advancing years, lack of fitness and very obvious lack of talent. At the time of writing (late 2014) I now only very occasionally ride but still spend a lot of time at the stable yard doing horsey things.

At the beginning of 2014 I decided to take up running. I found it tough going at first, but by the end of February I felt ready to try a timed 5k parkrun. These runs are held every Saturday morning all over the country and, increasingly, in various places around the world. This is my latest parkrun history. I cannot recommend parkrun highly enough.

I have been a licensed Radio Amateur since 1971, holding the callsign G4AEL, although I am no longer active on the air.
