Decathlon Scavenger Hunt

What happens when you throw 9 bloggers into Decathlon’s Surrey Quays store for a scavenger hunt? The best fun in town to be had on a Wednesday night and an introduction to more sports than I ever thought possible.     I love Decathlon. It’s a great store and I’ve bought many gems over the years, including my fantastic trail running skirt. I also took part in the Belfast edition of their popular run series, which is a FREE, organised, timed race held at various Decathlon stores – they are keen to involve their local… View Post

A few weeks back, I was given the opportunity to try some clothing from RUNA, an athleisure brand putting an emphasis on ” premium fabrics, cutting-edge prints and unparalleled comfort.” The range includes a selection of leggings, dresses and unisex t-shirts and sweatshirts, made from high performance fabrics.

Baxters Soup Swap Challenge

If you follow me on Instagram, you’re probably aware that I’ve moved house. The last few weeks have been manic and I still don’t have my kitchen appliances fitted. Moving is a busy and stressful time, so anything that can make meal times easier is a real bonus. Especially when they give you the option of having something hot inside you.     Step forward, Baxters Soup. I was asked to take part in the Souper Swap Challenge, swapping my usual lunch choice for one of the Baxters soups every day for two weeks. My… View Post

How to best use a memory foam …

Sometime ago, Ergoflex provided me with a fantastic memory foam mattress to help me improve my sleep and in turn, aid my half marathon training. It’s a well-known fact that a good quality of sleep is essentially for rest, recovery and increased performance, so it’s been interesting to compare a memory foam mattress to a standard spring one. As you know, I was initially very impressed with the Ergoflex mattress. I love the way it moulds to my body and the firmness it offers. However, did you know that when taking the plunge into buying… View Post
