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…

Core Blimey It’s Hot! As a fellow running blogger at Helsbels, I’m really excited to be working with Julie on her latest programme for summer – Core Blimey It’s Hot! We got into the running blogger world at similar times and have followed each other for a long time. What stood out to me about…

It ain’t half been hot recently in the UK Now listen guys I am a summer baby, I love the sunshine, I love how from my birthday (in early June) right the way through to mid September the pace of life changes for me, and for a change I’m not all, work, work, work all…

It was my birthday yesterday, but I wasn’t much in the mood for celebrating. On Saturday I spent an awesome afternoon in the sun with friends, family and women from The Clubhouse having a birthday picnic, there was cake, gifts, fizz and oh so much laughter, with the best bunch of women ever, so I…

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…

I am a proud Londoner, I always have been. London is in my blood, it’s in my bones (as Adele sings in her song about the River Lea) as at least 5 generations of my family have lived in this wonderful city. The only time I’ve ever lived outside was when I was studying for…

I have been in a very rocky relationship over the past decade. There has been tears and tantrums, weekends away to make up and try again, bruises and scrapes, times where I have simply run away and given up on it for a bit and lots and lots of swear words…and no I am not…
