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…

First thing yesterday morning instead of going for a run in the cold, I was sitting at my desk waiting for a call from BBC Radio London to speak to the Vanessa Show about the concept of women being heckled while out running. This was off of the back of an England Athletics survey that…

October is always a nervous time of the year for us running folk who nervously wait for a certain magazine to come through the door. Will it be a YES…or will it be another NO??? I am of course talking about the London Marathon (Other city marathons are of course available) Running London is a big…

I think we can all agree that running is kind of a pretty diverse sport, you only have to sit and watch the London Marathon on a cold drizzly day from the comfort of your couch to realise that….and even then you are only looking at different types of marathon runners…and sorry to break it…

There used to be a time where I would happily spend every weekend running races and writing reviews about them, but unfortunately I am really struggling with childcare at the weekends so my racing normally means 6-8 large scale events per year, which is a massive shame because I love doing some of the smaller…

It’s funny really, before starting up my blog I hadn’t been a regular reader of other peoples blogs but once you realise what goes into writing one of your own, you become much more interested in other peoples. This increased tenfold when I was nominated for the 2014 Blog Awards and then the Running Awards…

When I was at university (Did you know I have a first class degree in Performing Arts??) one of my 2nd year modules was called Virtual Reality in Performance and we spent 3 months exploring new technologies and concepts that might have the potential to change the way we see the world. The group I…

When I first started out running about 10 years ago now I couldn’t even think about running with other people, it was like my idea of a terrible nightmare, but secretly I knew it was something I’d love to be able to do eventually…one day, you know when I finally became a proper runner. It…
