All Things Fitness: Giving Up on a Race

So for today’s all things fitness post let’s talk about running and failure. This past weekend was my first running race of 2016. At the very last-minute I signed up, with my Dad to the Bookham 10k.

Running in London Town

Hands down one of the best ways to see and explore London Town is by running all over it and I love nothing more than heading out on to the Southbank for a run. Followed swiftly by a brunch of course! You get to see so much and if you choose the right time to go (Sunday… Read more »

All Things Fitness: Running Buddies

So this is a blog link up based around running that Fi and I have been joining in with sporadically throughout the year. This month’s topic is your favourite person to train with or your favourite training plan. I only have one training plan – for a half marathon – so I can’t really pick my favourite… Read more »
