I don’t know about you but I never knew what sleep deprivation was until I became a parent. To be quite honest I don’t think I ever gave it much thought. If I missed out on sleep through socialising, or staying up late watching TV one night, I could make up for it the following…

Can we talk short shorts for a moment? It took me a long old time to pluck up the courage to wear shorts to run in? I’m not sure why? I mean sometimes it’s bloody hot, and wearing even capri leggings just adds a whole new level of effort to a humid run. Sometimes it is…

This time of year is always a bit grim in the UK right?…and I always long for a bit of winter sun, a break…a couple of days away from the big smoke to re-energise myself…it’s not so much the cold as the lack of sun. What can I say? I am a sunshine and margaritas…

The irony of a very slow runner reviewing food which is marketed to help you go faster is not lost on me, however I came across Kate Percy at a conference a few years ago and she was so passionate about her product, it always stuck with me as a brand, and it has been…

Finding the perfect pair of running tights as a plus size athlete is seriously like the quest for the holy grail. The amount of pairs I have in my wardrobe that I have to be wary of, ones I can only wear for CrossFit, but only if there is no running, and those that are…

Come on be honest, when you hear the phrase protein drink you think milk based shake right? Or something along those lines? I know I did…that was until I came across Vieve Protein Water, a tasty water based drink with 20 grams of protein…great for recovering those sore and achy muscles after a run or…

I’ve been doing a whole heap of travel this year. I feel like I am forever packing and repacking a bag. Whether its for weekend races, a speaking gig, or a last minute weekend away with friends to catch some rays…I reckon I’ve finally got my packing for a short break down to a tee….
