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…

Hands up, who’s struggling to get out to run now the weather had turned cold? Meeeeeeeeeeeee!!!! Today while at CrossFit (and yes that was a struggle too) someone asked me when my next race was, and I realised I don’t have any more for 2017…my next one will be the Winter Run 2018 in Central…

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…

I am a proud Londoner, I always have been. London is in my blood, it’s in my bones (as Adele sings in her song about the River Lea) as at least 5 generations of my family have lived in this wonderful city. The only time I’ve ever lived outside was when I was studying for…

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…
