RUNSportShoes Day

I was really excited after being invited to spend the day in Brighton by SportShoes  at a day full of running and fitness activities. It sounded absolutely excellent, not to mention a good excuse to catch up with Jog Blog and meet Lesley, who I owe cake after she was such an angel in offering advice after a nasty rental experience. Alas, work got in the way, a deadline had to be met and it was with much grumpiness, I ended up not being able to go. By all accounts it was a fabulous day,… View Post

Train with Jess Ennis – Winner!

Thanks to those of you who entered my competition to win a copy of adidas miCoach. Blimey though, I had no idea that so few of my readers own the consoles. I bet I’d have had lots of entries had it been an opportunity to train with the real Jess Ennis! Anyway, the lucky winner of the game is Notmuchofarunner, selected by the Random Number Generator.

Luton Marathon Withdrawal, Running Injury and Feeling Fat!

Most of my posts have been about product reviews and competitions recently, so I thought I’d give you all an update into my world. An Autumn / Winter marathon is no longer on the agenda for me to run this year. I am really disappointed about it, but the fact is that I should be able to comfortably be running at least 10 miles now. The truth is, I’m currently only able to handle a slow 4-5 miles and then I’m barely able to walk the next day. I can only describe the pain as… View Post


Buffwear is the company selling the most awesome products ever for running. They’re really cool AND they’re useful. There’s also a little bit of genius going on and I was lucky enough to be sent some products to try out. So what is a Buff? Simple really; they’re a bit like snoods, but lightweight and are designed to keep your neck warm, basically doing the job of a scarf. These are great for running as you simply pull them on over the head, they don’t flap about and they’re not too tight to the neck either.… View Post
