I didn’t want to write this blog post today. Today, I didn’t want to write anything. In fact I am so exhausted by tapping on my keyboard I wonder if I will ever find the love for writing again. Why is this you may ask? Well for the last 21 days I have been steaming…

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…

I can remember the sense of dread I felt following the news that I had a place for The Virgin London Marathon back in 2012. Back then I didn’t know there was a ballot process, I had just decided a few years earlier that the 2012 London Marathon would be the marathon I would run…

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…

Its that time of the month again (no not that time), it’s time to showcase one of the awesome women from our running community in our runner of the month feature…and 35 year old Jenny Bennett from Petersfield in Hampshire has a thing or two to say about this crazy sport we like to take…

Being away on our Health and Happiness Retreat and then the pesky bank holiday meant we have left it right to the last minute to post the May Runner of the Month…but trust me Ally McKillop from Bristol is a very worthy winner I am sure you will agree So tell us when did you start…

With all the awesome running achievements going on this month with our clubhouse members it has been really difficult to choose a runner of the month based on performance or effort, so instead I want to shine a spotlight on someone who does an awesome job behind the scenes. Her name is Sharon Bradford and…

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…

The sensation in the pit of your stomach the moment you wake up on marathon morning is like no sensation you will ever feel, and if anyone tells you they are just excited they are a big fat liar because that feeling my friends is 100% fear. It doesn’t matter how many marathons you have…
