Let me just start with one important fact… ALL TYPES OF RUNNERS GET INJURED It doesn’t matter how heavy or light you are. If you are an absolute beginner or a seasoned pro…injury is part and parcel of being an athlete, and illness, unfortunately, is just a part of everyday life as a human being…so…

People in the running world making assumptions about my running experience purely on my appearance is one of my biggest bugbears about the sport. It happens all the time.

January is a time of year that lots of people take up or return to the sport of running, the festivities are out of the way, summer is around the corner and everyone is still full of enthusiasm and determination to keep up those new habits…the problem is how easy it is to keep that…
