Can we talk short shorts for a moment? It took me a long old time to pluck up the courage to wear shorts to run in? I’m not sure why? I mean sometimes it’s bloody hot, and wearing even capri leggings just adds a whole new level of effort to a humid run. Sometimes it is…

In today’s guest blog we hear from the powerhouse that is Dorinda who I first met at St Pancras station as we were both about to make our way to the EuroDisney half, she was an absolute darling and it was a joy to see her around the park with her running crew…never one to…

In a few days time, my Tedx talk all about how you live a bigger life will hit YouTube…eeeekkk. I open the talk with a bit about running marathons, I say that when it comes to marathon running people tend to fall into one of three categories Those who have run a marathon Those who…
