Yes you read that right. After saying NEVER AGAIN after my last terrifying obstacle race (which you can read about here) I have done a complete U turn and now have a place for a SPARTAN RACE happening in just 2 and a bit weeks time. Why? Well, because there is one taking place right…

Three months ago (check out this post) I was running in the glorious sunshine with the iconic London 2012 Stadium in the background and chatting to running legend Paula Radcliffe about how we get more women enjoying the sport of running, yesterday I stood on that very same piece of grass with 17,000 other runners with…

I live in Stratford, East London in the borough of Newham, and despite this being the least active place in the country (according to a recent piece of government research) I am incredibly proud to be a long term Newham Resident which is why I have ALWAYS gone out of my way to take part…

It is official. I now have my first big race in the diary for 2015 and I am incredibly excited about it, in fact I am incredibly excited just generally by having a whole new year to fill with running events…who knows which ones I will run. Looking back at my calendar for this year…
