OK, so I am not going to lie, this is a difficult post to write. I have been putting off writing it all week. So here goes… In all my years of racing I had never not showed up for a race I have signed up for. Not once. If it is in my diary…

So there has of course been a bit of excitement over the London Marathon ballot result this month…I didn’t get a slot in case you were wondering. Training for a spring marathon is always tricky for me, as the spring is my busiest time…and to be quite frank I just don’t need the extra stress….

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…

So I am not running the London Marathon this year, in fact I didn’t last year either. I have found training for a Spring Marathon really challenging during the busiest time of the year in my business so I am instead focussing on an ultra marathon in July and a trail marathon in October. However…

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.

I’ve never tried to hide the fact that I love racing…I mean I never actually race anyone, but I do enjoy taking part in mass participation events. In fact I love just watching them too, there is something magical about being around heaps of people with a shared remit…whether that be a marathon, a football…

Imagine how awesome it would be to get a whole heap of overweight women running on the same day of the year from all corners of the UK in a show of solidarity, in an act of defiance smashing stereotypes as they go… in fact scratch that why not involve women from all corners of…

So last month I made the dramatic decision to reduce the price of our online running club by more than 50% Why?
