Mark Kennedy: How a brain injury didn’t stop one runner

March 27, 2020

Mark Kennedy was enjoying the holiday of a lifetime when he suddenly passed out.

He was diagnosed with a brain injury that effects his mood, making him tired and anxious.

His doctor said contact sport was out of the question, but he might be able to carry on running.

Thankfully he could and Mark remains one of the most popular runners at Northampton parkrun and with Northampton Road Runners.

Now he's written a book about his experience - entitled 'What the Hell Just Happened' (the reaction of his wife Jules when she found found him passed out).

I talked to him about coping with his brain injury, running marathons and becoming an author.
