Hey you guys. It’s 6.30am here in East London, and I am at my desk cracking on with some work before the homeschooling of my 7-year-old Rose starts at 9am…we will be doing the Joe Wicks PE lesson first and then who knows ha ha So ladies… It is difficult to know what to write,…

I just took Rose to school for the final time…which sounds so dramatic. But it kind of is. This afternoon we are going to get a kitten…trivial perhaps, but she has wanted one forever and I think if she is going to be stuck at home at least she should have a little friend to…

I stayed at home all day Sunday instead of going out for my 16-mile run. I promised my clients I’d write an article about dealing with races being canceled and postponed. But I haven’t been able to write about running. It seemed so meaningless compared to some of the other things going on in the…

Can you believe February is almost over? I know it’s a short month but OMG it feels like Xmas is just over. As you may already know I took a week off work and a week away from social media last week….AND I didn’t do any training, none whatsoever eeeekkk!!! I could feel myself needing…

I am often told “You’re nuts” Yep completely un PC, along with “Crazy”, “Insane” and “You’ve got a screw loose” in relation to my marathon running antics. It seems like it’s the go-to response for anyone who doesn’t really get it. Along with the eye-rolling and shaking of the heads of course. Marathons are extreme,…

You know what it’s like. The weather is grim. Your motivation is at an all time low. But you’re training plan says 8 miles, or 10…or perhaps you don’t have a plan but you know if you don’t get out the door soon you may never again. So you head out…but your legs feel like…

I have been writing about being a plus-size runner for a whole decade, but you do know I had a life before TFTR right? I spent 10+ years prior to setting up my blog working as a drama facilitator, community engagement specialist, volunteer coordinator, trainer and consultant. I like people, and I like nothing better…

There are currently 200 women signed up to my popular beginners’ programme 5 weeks to 5K and I can’t wait until next Monday when I open the doors to the private facebook page and we get started. I’ve been fielding quite a few questions about the programme over the last few days so I figured…

And breeeeaaaaattttthhhhheeee So it’s 2020…a whole new year, a whole new decade. And so it has begun. The TV and internet is full of all that New Year, New Start bullshit…diets, exercise plans, dry January, veganuary….basically become a completely different person overnight. Enough already. It’s 100% OK to make some changes if you want to…but…

This has been quite a difficult blog post to write. Mainly because I didn’t have an awful lot of runs to choose from, which tells you all you might need to know about my year of running…if I had to review 12 of my best races I would be in trouble…as I’m not sure I…
