So yesterday I spent most of the afternoon feeling sick. Like really sick. The moment I have been waiting for had arrived. The TEDx talk I had recorded back in July had gone live on YouTube…..eeeeekkk. So many emotions, What if people didn’t like it? What if nobody bothered to watch it What if people…

I turned 40 this year. The Big Four Zero!!! Like where have the last 4 decades gone? Well, I knew I wanted to do something big to mark this milestone but I wasn’t sure what. A party would have been a nice option but I didn’t have the time or energy to organise it…so instead,…

I learned to swim when I was a kid. I was never very good at it but I could swim confidently enough for my Mum to let me and my siblings go swimming at the weekend by ourselves, and for her to be reasonably OK with us swimming in the sea as kids. I never…

Core Blimey It’s Hot! As a fellow running blogger at Helsbels, I’m really excited to be working with Julie on her latest programme for summer – Core Blimey It’s Hot! We got into the running blogger world at similar times and have followed each other for a long time. What stood out to me about…

It ain’t half been hot recently in the UK Now listen guys I am a summer baby, I love the sunshine, I love how from my birthday (in early June) right the way through to mid September the pace of life changes for me, and for a change I’m not all, work, work, work all…

Whether they are running it, spectating at it, cheering at it…or simply watching it from afar, the London Marathon is a major celebration for us all. My whole journey started back in 2005 with…

People often believe my first big race must have been a running event, but in fact this is not true it was actually a Triathlon. In 2005 I was working as a volunteer coordinator for Newham Council and one of our annual gigs to provide support to was The London Triathlon. Now I didn’t even know what…

You might think that with my adventurous nature and desire to test my limits through long distance running that climbing a mountain might perhaps be high on my bucket list too, but in all honesty it isn’t. I tried skiiing once and that was a sight to be seen, finding myself on a weeks long…

As I cycled towards West Ham station this saturday morning I was a little apprehensive about the day ahead, the first Fat Girl Run Clinic back in June had been such a resounding success I worried that this one for some reason would be a disaster. It had been harder this time to fill the…

Many of you will know that I don’t normally focus on speed when talking about running, because I believe as long as you run you are a runner regardless of speed, and continuously beating yourself up or comparing yourself to other runners is unhelpful and demotivating. But over the last few months I have been…
