Have a go (even if you don’t think you’re hard enough)

There is more to life than running. Did I REALLY just type that?! Yes! Because it is true there are MILLIONS of other sports out there and it is always good to try something new. Running has given me so much: stress relief, happiness, friendship and memories to last a lifetime. It has given me … More Have a go (even if you don’t think you’re hard enough)

Hackney half race recap

If you’re looking for a large, well organised half marathon in central London with an excellent goodie bag and fantastic crowd support then Hackney half is the one for you! This was my furthest run since the London Marathon and I wasn’t quite feeling ready to go it solo and try challenge my pre-London half marathon PB time.

From obese to marathoner- my story from 0 to 26.2miles

I never thought I could run a marathon. Ten years battling obesity, negative body image and low self esteem, I had decisively written off those 26.2miles. They weren’t destined for me, and the dreams I had as a child whilst watching the London Marathon, would only ever be dreams.

But then something changed, and within one year I went from never having run further than 10km to training for my first ever marathon, and what better way to start than with the London Marathon. This is a frank and honest account of how I went from 0 to 26.2miles, the ups and downs of marathon training and why you should never give up on your dreams. … More From obese to marathoner- my story from 0 to 26.2miles
