Having run the London Marathon twice with varying success when it came to seeing loved ones on the course, and seeing all kinds of anxieties this week in my 15 or so ladies running it next weekend, I thought this post might be useful to anyone running a marathon or going along to support someone…

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…

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…

You may remember she kindly invited me out to Pefkos…

This Months runner of the month is an incredible lady on so many levels, relatively new to The Clubhouse she has wowed us all with her determination and grit…so it is with great honour that I would like to introduce 37 year old Jessica Guth from Keighley in West Yorkshire. When did you start running and…

The buzz around Sundays Race for Life event in the weeks leading up to it was awesome, and rightly so, as the UK’s first ever women only marathon and half marathon there was a lot to be excited about. I was chuffed back in the Spring to be asked to become an ambassador for this event,…

Well I know what I will be doing. I will be lining up with thousands of ladies from around the country (many dressed in pink I would imagine) as we take on the UK’s first ever women-only Marathon and Half Marathon and most importantly lead the charge on cancer. Yes, on Sunday 4th October over…
