I think I have something wrong with me. A defective gene, or weird programming from when I was a child that constantly has me thinking… Oh…I wonder if I could do that? Even if the thing is completely ridiculous in its scale, or timing wise bang in the middle of a really hectic time, I…

I couldn’t sleep on Saturday night. Not sure why. I wasn’t even running in the morning. But I slept just like I have before any big race…not very well. I had panic dreams about not waking up on time and a dream about Tower Bridge being closed meaning I couldn’t get my car and all…

Let’s face it, training by yourself is pretty tough right? You have to organise your own plan, motivate yourself to get out the door, and when things go a bit pear shaped (as they often do) there is nobody to ask advice from or even just have a good old moan with. A couple of…

So we are almost there folks, the weekend that myself so many of my Clubhouse members look forward to each year. Whether they are running it, spectating at it, cheering at it…or simply watching it from afar, the London Marathon is a major celebration for us all. My whole journey started back in 2005 with…

So a week on from the recent London terrorist attack on Westminister Bridge I feel inspired to write this post about safety at the London Marathon which is now less than a month away. But let me be clear this is not by any means a blog post that implies that this event is at…

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…
