I use PayPal to process transactions. You can use a credit card as part of that process. You can opt-out of any recurring payments. I do not store your credit card info. I do not sell or give away your info. But you are creating an account so your LoginID and email will be stored in my WordPress environment where I require myself to have 2FA and whitelisted IP addresses to access the admin side of, so that’s hopefully more secure than many of the other places we trust our details to.


  1. Speed. Your support helps pay for speed boosting techy things like WebP image compression and CDN hosting just for you guys across the pond; meaning comes directly to you from the USA or the UK and with the quickest images possible.
  2. Help!: I try to respond in detail to as many comments from subscribers as I can. If you pose a question through the comments, you will be flagged up as a MEMBER/SUPPORTER/SUBSCRIBER and I will do my best to properly reply.
  3. Privileged Access: Sometimes I publish supporter-only content.
  4. Free 5K Plan – Once you’ve subscribed, fill in the information on this page and I will send a personalised 5K plan for the subscriber at the registered subscriber email address. It’s a good and detailed plan for good to decent runners.

You will be in awesome company – DCR signed up (Member=Supporter) & I do reciprocate, of course.



  1. Why are you doing this? Not everyone wants to support the site through purchasing things from my affiliates but still wants to support the site.
  2. Can I get a refund? There are no refunds for the current period your subscription runs for.
  3. When can I cancel? You can cancel the subscription anytime via the account settings on this site or through PayPal. It’s more complicated cancelling the payment from within PayPal unless you already know how to. See: Manage an existing account. Cancelling stops the next payment from happening but does not refund part of the current payment.
  4. My user ID and password are not remembered on InPrivate browsing. Why? That’s how In-Private browsing works, I can’t control that.
  5. How can I check everything is working fine? See the Test Page below or go here (link to
  6. As a paid-up supporter, why can’t I see all content? That should never happen. Please email me at after you have checked the status of your subscription (link to:
  7. Will the price go up? Maybe but probably not. I’ve stopped the monthly/quarterly subscriptions as the PayPal fees are too high.
  8. Is this all GDPR compliant? Yes.
