#clareruns12in12

So it’s official #clareruns12in12 is a go, it’s happening and that means announcing it right? Yep that’s 12 months of the year, 12 marathons to complete. Why am I doing it? The challenge, the love, and the continued push spring to mind. You’ve all heard about my new year’s resolution and this really started there, […]

Hello 17

I’m always a little wary about writing down what I want to achieve. Some people swear by it as a way to stick to your goals and put it all out there, but then I also worry that maybe it becomes an anchor to which you judge yourself on. If somehow you don’t succeed, I […]

Worthing 10K & Race Day Disappointment 

On the weekend it was my first official race since the marathon. A nice and easy, flat local route; short distance, full of friends, PB in the bag, what could go wrong? Turns out quite a lot. Before I get in to me, let’s talk about the race. It was sold out way sooner than […]

Well well well, this is my first ever review and I’m pretty excited about it. I first came across the brooks pure cadence shoe when I notched up my mileage and wanted something with a little more support than my barefoot running shoes.

Brighton Marathon

I’ve been sitting down trying to figure out how to write this, how do I fit the emotions in to a blog post, how can I possibly do it justice. It seems above and beyond my capabilities at the moment. Sunday 17th April seems too big to put into words even two days on.
