I haven’t really run since the New York Marathon. I wanted to, as I was all fired up about my training for next years London Marathon, but I’ve just been a bit fatigued and a bit preoccupied with some pretty exciting business developments which are going on behind the scenes. However, there was one race…

My first ever 10K race was on the mean streets of London back in 2006, so whenever I get an opportunity to reenact that I take it…especially if it involves novelty winter characters like the Winter Run Series races do. I did my first Winter Run in 2015 and fell in love…each year I enjoy…

In September a team of 22 Too Fat to Run ladies are off to EuroDisney to take part in a weekend of themed races, so we have experienced Disney race enthusiast clubhouse member Jessica Guth here to give us the low down on everything you need to know. The magic of runDisney is as difficult…

Now I have never been what you might have considered a girly girl, as a child I was far more likely to be found climbing trees or building camps with my older brother, than playing dress up, or pretending to be a princess with my sisters. I wish I could say the same for my…

I love the 10K distance. It’s worth getting out of bed and making a train journey for, but not too far that it wrecks you for the next week. But there are some 10K events, that I wouldn’t miss for the world, and Cancer Research’s Winter Run in Central London is one of them. I first…

Now I live in the city of London, and of course there are hills…but believe you me, I do everything I can to avoid them. I know, I know, hills are good for me, and help me develop strength and endurance…I just dislike them OK??? Well yesterday I couldn’t have avoided them even if I had…

The alarm went off at 6.45 and I did the unthinkable on a race morning…I pressed snooze…twice!! I had been looking forward to the London race in the Women’s Running 10K race series since we announced the partnership in the Spring, but after a busy work week and two very intense Crossfit sessions my body…

I am proud of my Scottish roots, but very much ashamed about how little I get to visit the place my grandad grew up, so when I realised that the Women’s Running 10K in Glasgow coincided with a speaking gig in Edinburgh plus the Edinburgh Festival it was a no brainer really to make a…

I’ve never tried to hide the fact that I love racing…I mean I never actually race anyone, but I do enjoy taking part in mass participation events. In fact I love just watching them too, there is something magical about being around heaps of people with a shared remit…whether that be a marathon, a football…

There are certain race opportunities you just don’t want to miss out on, even if you have taken part in the event before, even if you have taken part in it a number of times before, because some races just get you like that. I have lived in the London Borough of Newham most of…
