Goodlife Foods Review

I love meat. If I’m honest, I eat too much of it. I’m a runner, so I’m like “yay protein”. But I also love all types of food and was recently offered the opportunity to try some products from Goodlife Foods. Goodlife create vegetarian meals and they work with British farmers to source the best vegetables, making them the main feature of a meal. So instead of using meat substitutes, they focus on vegetables.     As regular readers know, I also have a 3-year-old girl. She has always loved her veggies, especially peas, carrots… View Post

Calling to end the Great Run and Herbalife Partnership

If you’re a runner and active on social media, you have probably by now seen that the Great Run series have recently signed Herbalife as their nutrition partner. Oh dear. Herbalife and nutrition. It’s a bit of an oxymoron really, isn’t it? Petition: WE CALL FOR THE GREAT RUN TO END THE HERBALIFE PARTNERSHIP For the unaware, Great Run is the UK’s biggest mass participation race series and their events aren’t limited to just running. They have inspired hundreds of thousands of people over the years to run in events such as the Great North… View Post

An open letter to “slow” marathon runners

Dear “Slow” Marathon Runner I bet you can’t believe that tomorrow is the big day. The Virgin Money London Marathon 2017. You might be thinking “f**k, that came around fast!” You’re probably a bit nervous, a bit scared and a lot excited, all at once.

It took me well over 6 hours. 6:20ish, I think was the actual time. Not… View Post

Where to eat after the London Marathon 2017

We’re just a few days out from this year’s London Marathon and perhaps you’re wondering where to go to eat after if you’re running or supporting. With runners burning around 2,500 calories during the epic 26.2 mile route, a good meal is likely to be one of the first things on the agenda after crossing the finishing line. Luckily, many London pubs and restaurants get in the spirit of the marathon, offering offers and treats galore for the finishers. Play it right and you could even eat your way around the city for nothing! Royal… View Post

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
