Ever picked up one of those free papers on the train and thought, Whoever buys papers these days when you can just get them now for free? The thing is plenty of people do still buy newspapers though, whether through habit, brand loyalty or a belief that their chosen publication says something about them, or…

It is bloody cold here in the UK. In fact, snowing and icy in many parts. And…. It is now just 2 weeks away from Xmas, so hardly the time to take up exercise you might think. But it just so happens I have well over 160 women around the UK (and a few further…

So I am just going to say this right from the off. I am not the biggest fan of cross country running I’m sorry, I’m just not. The cold. The mud. The hills….I just can’t always face the idea of it, let alone the reality. Plus, I had to do it back in school in…

Running can often feel like a very odd past time especially while you are out the pounding the streets while other people are doing “normal” activities, and let’s not ignore the fact that many folk believe we are rather strange for participating in this sport all together.

Before I took up running there was actually another endurance sport I took part in on the down low, and that was the much participated endurance sport of… Who can drink the most without falling over on a Friday or Saturday night Now, this was back in my twenties (pre child) when I had no…

Or 70, or 50…or even 10. So I’m going to hold my hands up and admit, I haven’t been running much lately at all…talking about running? Yes. Writing about Running? Yes…Dreaming about running even?
