Have you listened to our latest podcast yet? We're smashing all records on our comeback and I'd love you to be part of it!

Especially as we have first time pod ladies Amy Richards and Emma-Louise Trotter chatting about bad ass women of 2014 on this one!

Think 2015 is the year I will invest in a veg delivery box scheme. This post has convinced me!

Since I decided to stop fannying about and properly save for a house, I've had to cut back on a lot of things. My gym membership has taken a hike. My Wii has been cruelly sold on to stran...

My Race Report: The Virgin Money London Marathon 2014 #vlm2014

[WARNING: Grab a cuppa and a biscuit because this is LONG] If I’m honest, it’s taken a lot of soul searching and tears to write this report. Did I ever think I’d be writing this six months ago? I’m not sure. My mum said to me at the end that from the…

Testing testing - race nutrition. My #vlm2014 fuelling plan

Gels. I kind of thought it would be awesome when I got to this stage in the game. I mean, I’m basically consuming sugary treats whilst running. That has got to take the sting out of the long distances right? Wrong. What they don’t tell you is that most…

You probably know I do podcasts. I'd love you to take a listen to this one. As well as discussing hits from the 90s RnB genre, we take a long hard look at how to be frugal and save money this year.

Please do leave feedback in the comments!

We took a left turn into the 90s this week with a slight beatbox-off of RnB classics. Nelly, Usher and R Kelly? We've got them all, and we've got the imperson

Fundraising doesn’t have to feel like a marathon… top event fundraising tips from @erikadallimore!

Now the dust has settled on The London Marathon 2014 (although not on my medal – that bad boy is getting LOTS of attention), you might be thinking of getting involved in 2015! You’ll be pleased to know that I won’t be putting in for the ballot this year,…

The build up to the Big One - how I prepped for The London Marathon #vlm2014

So, I’ve now done what only a very small proportion of the global population do – I’ve run a marathon. Alright it was decidedly slow, but I’ve done it and that medal is alllll mine! Before I get down to brass tacks and bring you all the race report you’ve…

7 things you probably shouldn't do when tapering for a marathon

The taper. It’s the stuff of dreams. Every marathoner this Spring has been waiting for those glorious 3 weeks where the mileage goes down and it is all about restoring and repairing your body for the full thing. Despite the fact that I still have a…
