Thinking of reducing the amount of meat that you eat this year? Well apparently you’re in good company as around 1 in 3 Brits are cutting down on the amount of meat they eat (Source: NatCen 2016) and some of the biggest food stores are now even creating special sections that help make the ‘flexitarian’…

So we are almost there folks, the weekend that myself so many of my Clubhouse members look forward to each year. 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…

In 77 days 14 nervous but excited ladies from the Too Fat to Run community will be heading to the airport about to embark on adventure….as they join me and my incredible retreat staff for 7 days on the Greek island of Rhodes for a week of fitness, food and fun, and you could be…

But one of…

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.

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…

I have realised today that I have not bought a single xmas present yet, despite the fact there are just 37 days to go until the big event. I have been far too busy to be trawling the shopping centres looking for unique gifts for my loved ones because I have instead been working hard…
