So on International Womens Day, it’s only right that we showcase one of ourinternational members, the wonderful Katie Jean-Louis who lives in Mauritius…there are worse places to live I guess ha ha. I love Katies enthusiasm for running, and her red faced sweaty selfies…while we moan about the cold and rain, she moans about the heat…we all have our battles hey? Check out what she said last week to fellow Clubhouse member Dianne Macinnes who deals with our runner of the month feature. When did you…

So…it’s world book day today. The day where social media comes alive with photos of our little cherubs dressed in anything from their favourite Disney characters, to homemade creations worthy of an Oscar for best costume award. Love it of loathe it, it has become a thing. Last year my daughter went dressed up as…

My blogging started back in 2010 with me coming last in a race. I don’t often come last. But often I’m close. And sometimes I 100% am the last to cross the line, like last weeks Chase the Moon 10K in the Olympic Park. As a slow runner you never know for sure if this…

Did you run this weekend? I did. I really didn’t want to though. I am marathon training at the moment and knew I needed to get out and do 10 miles, but it had been a long week, and my motivation was somewhat lacking. The thing with marathon running though you can’t just wait for…

Another month another fabulous runner to showcase…and I got to hang out with her in the Pub on Sunday after the Winter Run which was pretty EPIC by the way. So I’d like to introduce you to the lovely and incredibly awesome Lou Stevens. When did you start running and why? I did not run…

Last week Monday we had the first part in this blog post on nutrition from qualified nutritionist Nikki Haggett, if you didn’t read part one here it is and now on to the second and final part…so much good advice here, 6. Meal planning can be an act of self care – sometimes in the rush…

I love the idea of running every day or even doing some kind of exercise every day…which is why I love the concept of RED January. Alas though for me this year it wasn’t to be.  I started off OK, and then a few days in the dreaded flu hit and I was floored. I’m…

Are you done with seeing yourself as a failure? I 100% am. So yesterday I wrote a provocative blog post called To the Man in the Van Thank You, all about being shamed on Tuesday night when I was training out on the streets of East London as part of a CrossFit Session. The response…

Sorry…I mean FUCK YOU!!! Apologies for the profanities but there is no other way of expressing how angry I am right now. While doing 400 meter repeats on a cold, dark and wet night last night at the end of a 6pm CrossFit session, a man exiting a silver van took it upon himself not…

For the longest time I have wanted to bring onboard a nutritionist to support women in my groups, but it has been hard to find the right one. Someone who understands that losing weight isn’t always the motivation behind running for some of us, and also someone who isn’t going to feed us hype and…
