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…

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 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…

Ladies. Can we talk sports bras for a minute? As a keen runner with large boobs (32G), it breaks my heart to see so many women in the wrong size bra and so many women thinking they can’t get the right bra. I know it can seem difficult, but please believe me when I say…

I am a hopeless romantic. I love soppy films. I cry at weddings….and I still believe (despite having a string of not so perfect partners in the past) that eventually I will find a decent man to share the rest of my life with. But what I have realised in the last few years of…

I have been in a very rocky relationship over the past decade. There has been tears and tantrums, weekends away to make up and try again, bruises and scrapes, times where I have simply run away and given up on it for a bit and lots and lots of swear words…and no I am not…

So this is a post I have thought about writing for a long, long time. And today seems like as a good a day as any to pluck up the courage and simply write it. I am often asked, what will you do when you lose all your weight? when talking to people about my…

Come on let’s face it girls, running can be tough, especially in the cold, drizzly weather of the UK this time of year. But it can also be quite challenging simply if you are a beginner, or are returning to the sport after injury of a break. Running is a battle of the body and…
