So let’s get one thing straight….I am a runner…thats what I do, however what you might not know is I am also quite partial to trying other fitness stuff too…I swim, I cycle, I do yoga (badly) and very occasionally I do try more extreme things like circuit training, body pump and kettlebells, I just never…

I love running in Central London, and I don’t even mind running in the cold (or rain) so I was excited about having Cancer Research’s Winter Run as my first race of 2016 in my diary…HOWEVER….I didn’t actually do much training in preparation.

Each month the perfect runner for this feature kind of just falls into my lap, and this months phenomenal woman comes via the Run Mummy Run forum. When I read her transformation story I got in touch and I just hoped she would be interested in getting involved. Luckily 30 year old Amy from Emswroth in Hampshire…
