Future Fit Childhood Nutrition

Firstly, I feel I must apologise to the lovely folks at Action PR for the tardiness of this post. It’s been a long time coming. Earlier this year, I had the opportunity to attend a really interesting event hosted by Action PR. Delivered by the knowledgable and passionate Performance Nutritionist, Tilly Spurr on behalf of Future Fit Training, we were given a fascinating insight into the importance of Childhood Nutrition. I loved Tilly. I’m not a nutritionist. I love food and I care about what I eat. I have a 3 year old and I… View Post

Running boredom

No, I’m not bored with running. I’m bored with not running.     I’ve talked many times before about falling in and out of love of running. Typically, now I have a break forced on me, I’ve got itchy feet, the grass is greener and I want to run.

Revising a race plan

Sometimes, despite your best intentions, you have to revise a race plan. And that’s exactly what I am having to do with the upcoming Spitfire Scramble in 2 weeks time.

Corey wants to do 8 loops (she has got this!) and… View Post

Race report: Needles Cross Country 10k

The Needles XC Half Marathon is a very popular race on the Isle of Wight and is known as one of the toughest and most beautiful half marathons in the country. This year, as part of the Isle of Wight Festival of Running, they also did a 5k, 10k and full marathon version. I opted to take part in the 10k to try to get my legs used to running… View Post

Top Tip For Travelling: Travel Insurance

Okay, so I may not be a travel blogger, although I do have an “active travel” tab above, but following the events of the past week, I felt this was an important post to write about the importance of travel insurance. I’ve been fortunate enough this year to have the opportunity to do a bit of travelling, my most recent trip being to Malta. I love the island, the climate is divine and the people are so warm and welcoming. I last visited in 2005 when I bowled in the u24 Malta Open Championships, placing… View Post
