Another month another fabulous runner to showcase…and I got to hang out with her in the Pub on Sunday after the Winter Run which was pretty EPIC by the way. So I’d like to introduce you to the lovely and incredibly awesome Lou Stevens. When did you start running and why? I did not run…

Happy New Year…or is it? Are you heading into the New Year under enormous pressure to get fit, lose weight, earn more money, have better sex, travel the world, get a better job, have a capsule wardrobe, find the man (or woman) of your dreams? Well, do you want the good news or the bad…
