Last year’s review post was called ‘Well, that was not what I planned!’ and I could use the same for this year! In 2019 I wanted to ease back on the miles and enjoy my running more. I ended up running my highest yearly mileage, doing my 1st marathon and 1st ultra! Although I did […]Read more "2020 – CAN I USE LAST YEAR’S REVIEW TITLE?!"
At the end Of 2018 I was trying to decide what my running plan would be for 2019. 2017 was a year chasing PBs & times, 2018 was all about distance goals & challenges. So for 2019 I decided I needed to forget about times & distances and just go out and enjoy my running. […]Read more "2019 – Well that was not what I had planned!"
Pain, discomfort, hallucinations, tiredness and hunger. Am I selling this race to you yet? It wasn’t all bad, honest. It was an amazing experience and I learnt so much about myself. So the concept of the race. As a team (we were a 3, Laura, Sean and myself) we would be chained together and we […]Read more "Escape from Meriden"
10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 Goooooooo! Crikey here we go, let’s do this. I hadn’t planned to do a marathon this year.

The Durham City Run is so unique and the midweek evening start time gives it a special atmosphere. The route takes in the riverside, views of the Cathedral, passes the cricket ground and takes in the historic streets of this beautiful city. When I was asked by the Events Of The North team to be […]Read more "EOTN Durham ambassador"
Like life, running is often about highs and lows. June was a very emotionally mixed month for me. The month started with the Hull Half. This was the first of the races I had won free entry for with the Run For All competition. Yes it was only a week after the RnR Liverpool weekend […]Read more "Highs and Lows"

Crossing the finish line in last place and I was loving it. Sounds strange doesn’t it? Especially after coming 7th in last year’s race. But that’s what happened to me at my last race, the Stockton Duathlon. I luckily won two free places for the duathlon a few weeks before it took place. I asked […]Read more "Finish Lines Not Finish Times"
When I finally got some sort of control of my mental health, I always had it in the back of mind that I could go back to that dark place. Something I definitely don’t want.
