Big news….Santa is on his, ooooppps I mean her way…so the big question is have you been good this year? Now, define good???? So anyway, I have been putting off posting about this, as I am still very much in denial that the summer is actually over, but with Halloween and Bonfire Night already gone…

I know, I know, I know…there are only a few days until Xmas, and nobody really wants to think about next year or exercise or health right now, but I am about to sign off for a few days for some much needed R&R…and I need to let you know about what is going on…

Did you know that this week has been Women’s Sport Week 2016 which is all about getting more women and girls involved in sport and an opportunity to showcase female athletes who are at the top of their game. Most of all, it’s an opportunity for everyone to get involved and show their support for…

Last week in the hectic lead up to the London Marathon weekend I escaped the hustle and bustle of London and spent a very sunny morning in a lovely park in Southend in Essex. I was joined by some fab ladies from our community, including our Virtual Assistant Sharon (she’s the one who deals with enquiries about…

For a long time women have been asking for an accessory they can wear while training or racing that isn’t one of our provocative race shirts and vests…like during marathon season for example, many of our women want to be identified as one of our tribe…but are wearing charity shirts or kit that is suited…

My favourite race distance has always been 10K.
