Sorry…I mean FUCK YOU!!! Apologies for the profanities but there is no other way of expressing how angry I am right now. While doing 400 meter repeats on a cold, dark and wet night last night at the end of a 6pm CrossFit session, a man exiting a silver van took it upon himself not…

For the longest time I have wanted to bring onboard a nutritionist to support women in my groups, but it has been hard to find the right one. Someone who understands that losing weight isn’t always the motivation behind running for some of us, and also someone who isn’t going to feed us hype and…

In this months Runner of the Month feature, we showcase a runner with an incredible journey which in many ways is just getting started. I met Sule over a year ago at the launch of the Too Fat to Run programme in Barking & Dagenham, we have since become friends and even race buddies, when…
