For the past 5 days I have been away from home on a very exciting trip to Israel to report on the incredible sports scene that can be found there. I was invited by the Ministry of Tourism along with 39 other international journalists and bloggers to take part in one of the races at…

So in April a really important running thing happens in London that brings the good and the great of the running world into the capital…and NO it’s not the Virgin London Marathon (although that might have something to do with the timings) No…it’s the UK Running Awards And guess what?

Let me explain. I’ve not always been a blogger…oh…

I have been toying with the idea of doing an ultra marathon for some time now…I know…I know its a little crazy when I barely make it to parkrun most weeks due to my busy lifestyle, but I always like to take on new challenges and there is something about the concept of travelling as far…

So you all probably know that I am based in London. But did you know that over 8 million people live here currently and by 2020 that is due to rise to more than 9 million? Yet London accounts for just 0.6% of the UK’s land….so its a pretty crowded place…its surprising there’s even any…
