Motion in months

January 3, 2013


Three days into 2013 and it’s a safe bet that every single reader of this post (and indeed the writer!) is full of positive intentions and excited anticipation to set greater goals this year, to train faster and harder, to sleep earlier, to rise sooner, to listen to niggles, to replace Cosmos with coconut water […]

Meals & miles

December 9, 2012


I picked up a Runners World book the other day called ‘the new runner’ by John Bingham and Jenny Hadfield. It’s a great read full of tips and tricks to enable even the most sceptical of runners to discover that running is indeed one of life’s greatest pleasures.

Are you a stunner?

July 20, 2011


A stunner I hear you ask?  I ask not in the ‘hot chick’ sense but in the ‘stylish + runner = stunner’ sense?! On Sunday, I was super excited to hear the doorbell ring and to see an enormous adidas box awaiting me on the other side.  Like a child on Christmas morning, like Charlie […]
