The sun is shining in East London and I am contemplating heading out for a run this afternoon. I am attempting a 14 day run streak as part of my FREE For The Love of Running Challenge which is going great…we have over 1000 women taking part of all levels, everything from total beginner to…

October is always a nervous time of the year for us running folk who nervously wait for a certain magazine to come through the door. Will it be a YES…or will it be another NO??? I am of course talking about the London Marathon (Other city marathons are of course available) Running London is a big…

So it appears that 2016 is the year I became an international athlete ha ha Well thats not strictly true. I did my first overseas running event in about 2007 when I went with some friends to France to do the Paris 20K. It was an incredible weekend of good food, laughter, running and wine and…
