Let me just start with one important fact… ALL TYPES OF RUNNERS GET INJURED It doesn’t matter how heavy or light you are. If you are an absolute beginner or a seasoned pro…injury is part and parcel of being an athlete, and illness, unfortunately, is just a part of everyday life as a human being…so…

January is a time of year that lots of people take up or return to the sport of running, the festivities are out of the way, summer is around the corner and everyone is still full of enthusiasm and determination to keep up those new habits…the problem is how easy it is to keep that…

So yes it is the final day of 2017, the day we all reflect on the 12 months gone past and get excited by the 12 months ahead of us. Well at least thats how I feel today. Last night I looked through my photos from this year to select one which summed up 2017,…

Hands up, who’s struggling to get out to run now the weather had turned cold? Meeeeeeeeeeeee!!!! Today while at CrossFit (and yes that was a struggle too) someone asked me when my next race was, and I realised I don’t have any more for 2017…my next one will be the Winter Run 2018 in Central…

Big news….Santa is on his, ooooppps I mean her way…so the big question is have you been good this year? Now, define good???? So anyway, I have been putting off posting about this, as I am still very much in denial that the summer is actually over, but with Halloween and Bonfire Night already gone…

In my work as a running guru, motivational speaker and life coach I speak a lot about fear for women…so much so that I am currently writing a book on the subject. Often we know we have fears, lots of them…but sometimes we don’t really take time to think about them and look at how they…

I woke up in a strange bed this morning to the sound of my alarm. It was 6.30am I switched it off quickly not wanting to wake anyone else up. I got out of bed and changed from my PJs into my running gear before leaving the guest bedroom and walking quietly down the stairs…

When I first started running I didn’t know a single other runner. Like seriously. The only people I knew who run were guys from my estate who spent their teenage years running away from the police. It is hard to imagine that now, as 80% of the people I spend my time with these days are…

People often ask me what the best time to take up running is, or what time of the year I like running most and the Autumn wins hands down. In January when most people tie up their trainers with renewed enthusiasm, filled with new years resolutions…well…the weather is still shite here in the UK, and…
