Sorry…I mean FUCK YOU!!! Apologies for the profanities but there is no other way of expressing how angry I am right now. While doing 400 meter repeats on a cold, dark and wet night last night at the end of a 6pm CrossFit session, a man exiting a silver van took it upon himself not…

First things first…is don’t panic. Now look…let me be frank with you. You know you should have started before now, and I know you should have…but hey, shoulda, woulda, coulda. We are where we are right? Now before I give you some advice about what to do if you find yourself in the first week…

Happy New Year…or is it? Are you heading into the New Year under enormous pressure to get fit, lose weight, earn more money, have better sex, travel the world, get a better job, have a capsule wardrobe, find the man (or woman) of your dreams? Well, do you want the good news or the bad…

So it’s two whole weeks since I ran the New York City Marathon. The hype has died down, my jet lag has gone…and life moves on. Already I am thinking about my training plan for London 2019…and thinking about my goals for that race. As marathons go, New York City Marathon was a big one. Unlike any…

I love sport, I always have. At primary school, I tried every sport and physical activity going, rounders, cricket, football, ballet, athletics, judo, taekwondo, barn dancing, brownies, tap dance…run outs, knock down ginger, climbing trees, running away from trouble.

So I guess you can gather that I am the kind of person who enjoys BIG challenges. Nothing I do is ever small, or unassuming. I am always about pushing the barriers, stretching myself to the limits…seeing what my body, mind and spirit can achieve. This often means BIG ADVENTURE, and sometimes, just sometimes it involves…

When I decided that I wanted to run the London Marathon back in 2005 nobody ever thought I would actually achieve it…perhaps even me. I don’t even know why I initially wanted to do it…maybe it was because it felt like the BIGGEST thing you could do in the sport, an accomplishment that other people would…

6 years ago my life changed FOREVER. Actually, that’s a bit of a lie, it was way back in 2005 when I first got the crazy idea in my head that I wanted to run a marathon…it just took me a while to realise my dream, and yes over the past 12 years I have…

Not sure marathon running is for me, I can barely run 5K at the moment. Wow, if I had a pound for every time a woman said that to me and then 3 months later she’s back in touch saying, Hey Julie, guess what? I have a marathon place There is just something about that…
