Don’t you just hate that word SHOULD??? I am asked about “Shoulds” all the time though in my line of work… How many times a week should I be running? How long should it take me to train for a 10K? How much should I spend on a pair of running shoes? And the answer…

The sun is shining in East London and I am contemplating heading out for a run this afternoon. I am attempting a 14 day run streak as part of my FREE For The Love of Running Challenge which is going great…we have over 1000 women taking part of all levels, everything from total beginner to…

I have been in a very rocky relationship over the past decade. There has been tears and tantrums, weekends away to make up and try again, bruises and scrapes, times where I have simply run away and given up on it for a bit and lots and lots of swear words…and no I am not…
