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…

There are 20 days left of this decade. Holy cow…where did all that time go? Do you know I started this blog in 2010…9 years and 2 months ago to be precise. I started blogging because I was fed up of weird, funny and unfair things kept happening to be in the running world…and nobody…

Some people love the festive countdown, but many of us hate it. Family politics Difficult logistics The expense Loneliness…

I’ve had a bit of a nagging feeling today, a feeling of…I should actually be running. I should. I have a half marathon in a fortnight and a full marathon in just over 2 months and I simply ain’t running. My daughter starts primary school on Thursday so my running routine will return and besides I…

People are obsessed with my size and it’s just so bloody annoying. The meant to be helpful comments from friends and family Oh you’ve lost weight? Erm nope…don’t think so, not last time I looked. Or journalists who are doing a story about me who insist on knowing my dress size…when the piece is not…
