For the past 5 days I have been away from home on a very exciting trip to Israel to report on the incredible sports scene that can be found there. I was invited by the Ministry of Tourism along with 39 other international journalists and bloggers to take part in one of the races at…

Ladies. Can we talk sports bras for a minute? As a keen runner with large boobs (32G), it breaks my heart to see so many women in the wrong size bra and so many women thinking they can’t get the right bra. I know it can seem difficult, but please believe me when I say…

Now I have never been what you might have considered a girly girl, as a child I was far more likely to be found climbing trees or building camps with my older brother, than playing dress up, or pretending to be a princess with my sisters. I wish I could say the same for my…

How many times have you heard someone say “I thought running was supposed to be FREE?” It is a phrase I hear all the time.
