Did you know we have our very own app? Well its hosted via an american company called Mighty Networks, but unlike Facebook it is actually our own private little group, which means when you join this community you actually see everything which is posted AND there are no adverts. Its glorious. Anyway, you don’t want…

There is nothing I like more than bringing awesome women together. It’s what I do #sorrynotsorrymen but it’s true, I love doing it online but boy oh boy do I love doing it in person too. My first running retreats were a simple affair, 20 women brought together initially in the function room of the…

Buckle up…it’s gonna be a long and bumpy one. Marathons are strange things…a bit like relationships in many ways. One minute you love em, the next minute you don’t want to ever see them or think about them again…but deep down you also reluctantly know what you put in is what you get out. Tough…

So you run a marathon yesterday. And today you don’t know what to do with yourself. If you are anything like me you are hobbling around with a massive grin on your face trying to make sense of it all. You may have done a few updates on social media and shared all the gory…

In just 25 days time I will be lining up with thousands of other runners attempting my 5th marathon…likely to be my last. Marathons are tough (state the obvious Ju) Not only physically, but they impact on your life in every possible way. You think you have ages to train and then before you know…

I wasn’t sure if I would run this weekend. I have had a cold and a chest infection all week, and aside from CrossFit on Monday, I have pretty much spent the last 7 days on the sofa trying not to cry as my to do list just gets bigger and bigger. With just 4…

This months runner of the month has simply been blowing my socks off for the last few months. She is a woman on a mission and I can’t wait to see how she gets on next month. Vicky Allison from Devizes in Wiltshire has been a member of The Clubhouse for a good few years…

I was lying on the floor of A&E. If you ever want to get looked after quickly then this is a tactic that will work well. For me it wasn’t a tactic. Early September 2017, I had what I would consider a normal business day. Got up and tended to my emails and social media,…
