Evidently, my name is Luke Hinds
This site is to capture notes on two topics. My work and my Hobby.
I work as a software engineer for a company called Red Hat, with a focus on security and systems trust.
My hobby (well obsession) is running. Ultra running to be specific (anything greater than a marathon distance). I have so far ran distances of 50k, 50 miles and a 100 miles. My ultimate goal race is the “Spine Race” 258 miles along the UK’s pennine way, in the height of winter.
I live in Wiltshire with my family (my wife and two daughters)
My kids are both keen runners too.
I also coach young kids as a qualified UK Athletics Coach
My family has two dogs Stanley (a Staffordshire Bull Terrier) and Maisie (a French Bulldog)
I drive a Land Rover Defender when it works, and due to often having to fix it, might post helpful content here, for other frustrated owners.
I generally shy away from drama and try to keep a perspective on what matters.
I live in area of the UK called Wiltshire, or to be specific ‘The Cotswold’. I am very lucky, I would not want to live anywhere else as its very beautiful

Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not: nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not: the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.Calvin Coolidge
