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…

This blog has been edited roughly 18 hours after the first version went out. A report of copy write infringement was made on Facebook for what I can only assume is the use of an ASICS photo which this piece is about. I have removed the photo and instead uploaded a photo of my running…

So I am just going to say this right from the off. I am not the biggest fan of cross country running I’m sorry, I’m just not. The cold. The mud. The hills….I just can’t always face the idea of it, let alone the reality. Plus, I had to do it back in school in…

I think I have got myself a bit of a reputation. Let me explain…. Whenever an obesity story hits in the UK, a new bit of research or some kind of incident that has got the medias attention…my phone starts to go. When this first started happening I got all excited and would spend days…

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…
