About Me

Hi! I’m Helen and you’ve stumbled across my blog. Look, here I am!

I’m 30, I live in South East London (or North Kent, 5 feet from London if we’re being precise), I like vintage style clothing a lot, I like drinking beer a lot, I love eating cake and I’m passionate about tenpin bowling. And I’ve also got a toddler called Rose Lene Grace.

When I’m not procrastinating an awful lot, I run, blog about running and work as Content Manager for Up For A Challenge. I’m also the Communications Manager for the British Tenpin Bowling Association. I also founded the UK Fitness Bloggers network last year and with over 300 members, I’m a bit proud of it. My “professional” blog is at helentamblyn.com and I talk about disliking like ladders.

So far, I’ve completed three marathons and this blog documents my journey in health and fitness. With a hearty side dish of cake and a pint of beer

Oh, and did I mention I once bowled in the AMF World Cup?

Thanks for visiting. Feel free to ask me anything, but I reserve the right to not answer!

  1. It’s certainly Kent. But it’s within the 25 and in the London Borough of Bexley. Silly boundaries.

    1. It’s Kent! It’s nowhere near London. If you insist on this ‘I live in London’ thing when you don’t, I will unfollow and unfriend you. Please note I have decided to overlook the ‘OH’ thing. Yes, I know I need to get a life…

  2. I say Kent as I am no longer allowed to bowl for London but I am allowed to bowl for Kent so that settles that.

  3. Glad I found your blog! I’m really looking forward to following you as I continue on my own health and fitness journey.
