TICKING OFF MY FIRST TRIATHLON

In every area of life there’s always more to be discovered, yet sometimes knowing when can be one of the hardest parts. Throughout the spring and summer of last year, my running feet were getting itchy. As a few friends trained for triathlons and took their training to the saddle and the pool my intrigue grew. After watching the Leeds ITU triathlon in May my … Continue reading TICKING OFF MY FIRST TRIATHLON

SIERRA LEONE MARATHON : GIRLS SPEAK OUT

I’ve come to find that progress is a continual thing. It isn’t a complete entity, it’s an ongoing process, be this in the country in which we live in, or for the world as a whole. I count myself lucky to have grown up in a society, that, whilst it may have its flaws, ultimately, it works. It aims to allow individuals the freedom of modern life, and offers children the … Continue reading SIERRA LEONE MARATHON : GIRLS SPEAK OUT

INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY

Today is International Women’s Day – hurrah! A day to celebrate female strength, freedom and pride, with women all over the world. Whilst there are many things that still need to be improved upon, as with any mode of progression, being a continual force, it’s important to see how far we’ve come so far. To continue elevating, not segregating, and to acknowledge how much further forward we are … Continue reading INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY

WMN RUN | MAKE, TASTE & TALK

In training with the lovely WMN RUN ladies throughout this winter, I’ve come to find that a lot of the same questions were often being asked. What should I be eating before a long run? Should I carry food with me – if so, what? Gels? Energy bars? What do I stock up on for recovery?  Admittedly, we’re faced with food every day so it’s easy to take it for granted, … Continue reading WMN RUN | MAKE, TASTE & TALK

NANNA SINE MUNNECKE : STRETCHING CAPABILITIES

Sometimes you meet people in life and wonder, how? How do they juggle? How do they work on their own progression, raise up two children to stand as tall as a tree, make time endlessly for everyone else, and maintain a career that demands daily? Nanna Munnecke is that exactly. Together with the stubborn strength that reverberates from my Mother to my own self, Nanna is one … Continue reading NANNA SINE MUNNECKE : STRETCHING CAPABILITIES

REFINERY29 : 5 FEMALE CREATIVES PUSHING BOUNDARIES IN MANCHESTER

I’ve lived in London, away from my home town in Greater Manchester, for just over three and a half years. Whilst this city has shaped me into the person I am today, given me opportunities, allowed me to find a path, and ensured that I learn first hand the definition of what it is to work, I will always be a Mancunian through and through. … Continue reading REFINERY29 : 5 FEMALE CREATIVES PUSHING BOUNDARIES IN MANCHESTER

LIVE BEYOND PODCAST

My lovely friend and endurance inspiration Viv Joynes has started a podcast called Live Beyond. Recently she had me on to talk all things running, community, life juggling and gender, together with the support that fuels me on episode three here. Even if you don’t fancy listening to some Northern rambling, go and have a little listen to her other episodes for a boost of inspiration. Continue reading LIVE BEYOND PODCAST

4 WEEKS, 3 MARATHONS & A TON OF FUN

After racing the Berlin marathon in September, it was a welcome feeling to be able to face my next set of marathons without time or pace on my mind. If I’m honest, I hadn’t necessarily planned to run all three in close succession, I’d already agreed upon Chicago with my boyfriend Stephen, and Toronto with my good friend Jeggi, but even so, when an impromptu spot for Berlin came … Continue reading 4 WEEKS, 3 MARATHONS & A TON OF FUN
