Continuing with our Clubhouse blogging takeover, today’s blog is a review of the Vitality Big Half race that many of our members took part in over the weekend. Clubhouse member Jo Gennari has done a wonderful job of recruiting and supporting runners in her own workplace and I was so chuffed to bump into her…

My first ever 10K race was on the mean streets of London back in 2006, so whenever I get an opportunity to reenact that I take it…especially if it involves novelty winter characters like the Winter Run Series races do. I did my first Winter Run in 2015 and fell in love…each year I enjoy…

I am a proud Londoner. One of those rare people that have actually lived here their whole life, coming from parents who had too. I know, I know…we do exist ha ha So, yeah I am a proud Londoner and I ADORE the London Marathon. It hasn’t always been the case though because for a large…

I am super nervous about running with other people. It took me 6 years of running alone before I plucked up the courage to join a running club, and I have had a love hate relationship with group running ever since. What if I am too slow and everyone just leaves me? What if someone…

I couldn’t sleep on Saturday night. Not sure why. I wasn’t even running in the morning. But I slept just like I have before any big race…not very well. I had panic dreams about not waking up on time and a dream about Tower Bridge being closed meaning I couldn’t get my car and all…

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…

So a week on from the recent London terrorist attack on Westminister Bridge I feel inspired to write this post about safety at the London Marathon which is now less than a month away. But let me be clear this is not by any means a blog post that implies that this event is at…

I have only just got back into the swing of my running this year in the last week or so, the cold weather has been deterring me so I have been focussing on doing CrossFit 3 times a week. But on Saturday I wanted to check my pace over the 5K distance, as I have…

The alarm went off at 6.45 and I did the unthinkable on a race morning…I pressed snooze…twice!! I had been looking forward to the London race in the Women’s Running 10K race series since we announced the partnership in the Spring, but after a busy work week and two very intense Crossfit sessions my body…

I have woken up this morning unable to move, and I didn’t even run the bleeding marathon this time ha ha…but what a weekend!! The Virgin Money London Marathon weekend is not just about the actual 26.2 mile race that takes place Sunday morning, in the running world its the build up, the expo, the running…
