Cool Runnings

I’ve put together a mix of running races in London this Summer (ok I’ve included one in October) to keep you motivated. If you’re anything like me I always find it much easier to exercise when I have a goal in mind. Whether that’s a specific race or an achievement like a PB, a schedule…

Follow My Trail

A couple of weeks ago I went up to Luke’s parents in Gloucestershire and his Dad asked whether I wanted to join him for a run the next day along the Malverns. The Malverns are around 13km long and the highest point peaks at 425 metres. The route we would be doing was around 5km and…

Other brands like Garmin, Polar and Suunto also provide watches that work…

I had 1 never worn anything by the brand Under Armour, 2 never been to the Running Works shope before and 3 hadn’t run with Midnight Runners before who were hosting…
