Running is a multimillion pound industry….so anyone who tells you running is FREE is a fool…a fool I tell you. But actually aside from all that commercial pressure to have all the latest stuff, I do think buying running kit and equipment to compliment your chosen hobby can actually help you feel better about all the…

I didn’t want to write this blog post today. Today, I didn’t want to write anything. In fact I am so exhausted by tapping on my keyboard I wonder if I will ever find the love for writing again. Why is this you may ask? Well for the last 21 days I have been steaming…
