SKINS DNAmic Compression Clothing Review

We’re now well into 2017 and I’m starting to gradually increase my running mileage in light of the fact that the North London Half Marathon is fast approaching.

Join my #NLSquad at the North London …

One great thing for motivation is to register for a race. I’m now looking at my calendar for next year and I’m pleased to announce that I will be taking part in the North London Half Marathon as a race ambassador.  Taking place at Wembley on 12th March, this out and back route runs Stadium to Stadium from Wembley to Saracens’ Allianz Park. After a lap round the stadium, it’s time to turn back to Wembley where it’s promised that you’ll get to cross The Greatest Finish Line In The World! I have an axe… View Post
