I get asked to review a lot of Health & Fitness products and services, AND a lot of “Diet” related products. I say “Thanks but no thanks” a lot!!! I shift between frustration and boredom when I receive emails from PR companies that start with “We think this would be a great fit for www.toofattorun.co.uk”…

So today we are going back to basics and simply reviewing the very best ways to begin your running journey with some suggestions for how to start…none of them are particularly easy, but nothing worth having in life is right? 1. Just start running today – As in put your trainers on this very minute and…

With just a week and a bit to go until Xmas many of us are starting to wrap things up (physically and psychologically), review our year and set goals for 2016. Some of us may be thinking about setting a New Year Resolution or Resolutions, and worst still some of us may have given ourself…

With less than 12 days to go until my Brighton Marathon attempt I have a body that I am sure is throwing out phantom niggles and pains just despite me.

As we hurtle towards the end of this month, the first of this new year I thought it about time for me to look back on January 2014. Not only in terms of my progress but reflect also the whole concept of resolutions and how useful they are. I mean many of us make them each…
