I came across a wonderful internet meme a few days ago that summed up how a lot of folks feel about winter running. With a picture of a little black girl with a defiant glance (much like the ones I get from my own little girl) with the words reading… I know I said I…

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…

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…

Well I know what I will be doing. I will be lining up with thousands of ladies from around the country (many dressed in pink I would imagine) as we take on the UK’s first ever women-only Marathon and Half Marathon and most importantly lead the charge on cancer. Yes, on Sunday 4th October over…

So maybe you are not quite race ready at the moment, or the thought of lining up in your shorts and vest in the snow is not your idea of fun…but you still want to be involved in the running scene right, and have something to look forward to in the new year? Well. Four…

Today marked my first proper race since giving birth in January, well that’s how I was supposed to approach it…like a real race. It was in fact a cancer research race for life 5k event supported by ITVs Lorraine Show under the banner of #mumsontherun. For my readers not in the UK this is like…
