And breeeeaaaaattttthhhhheeee So it’s 2020…a whole new year, a whole new decade. And so it has begun. The TV and internet is full of all that New Year, New Start bullshit…diets, exercise plans, dry January, veganuary….basically become a completely different person overnight. Enough already. It’s 100% OK to make some changes if you want to…but…

This has been quite a difficult blog post to write. Mainly because I didn’t have an awful lot of runs to choose from, which tells you all you might need to know about my year of running…if I had to review 12 of my best races I would be in trouble…as I’m not sure I…

I never get it when the first thing people ask when you complete an important race is, “What time did you do?” Like I get it if they are a running friend, and you have had a prior conversation about pace, or your goals…but when an almost complete stranger asks the question I’m a bit…

I came across a wonderful internet meme a few days ago that summed up how a lot of folks feel about winter running. With a picture of a little black girl with a defiant glance (much like the ones I get from my own little girl) with the words reading… I know I said I…

I have 5 siblings. Yes…I am one of 6 children. What can I say? We do things BIG in our family. None of my siblings are particularly sporty. Jennie was as a teenager, she was proper into Sport as a kid, trained as a lifeguard, did a sports course at college, even worked in a…

I turned 40 this year. The Big Four Zero!!! Like where have the last 4 decades gone? Well, I knew I wanted to do something big to mark this milestone but I wasn’t sure what. A party would have been a nice option but I didn’t have the time or energy to organise it…so instead,…

What would you talk about if you were given a platform to speak out to the world? Which one message would you want to share? Do you even have something worth sharing? Now I have always been an opinionated person. I’ve always had something to say….just ask my Mum. So it probably comes as no surprise…

Do you ever get to a point in your life where you literally go… How did I end up here? It often happens when really really good stuff happens, or when you have hit rock bottom. And of course on birthdays right? This month I turned 40. Four Zero…I know, I know??? For context, this…
