    Marathon Training Update

    Monday, February 23, 2015

    I can’t remember if I mentioned I’m running London Marathon this year, but there you have it, I am. I’ve kept it pretty low key ’cause really there’s nothing more boring than someone constantly banging on about marathon woes (and I say that as a runner). I’ve taken a head-down-get-on-with-it kind of approach which seems […]

Review: Pole Dancing Class

To know me is to know I have a love of twerkin’ tunes and strip club music. Combine that with my love of fitness and it was really only a matter of time before I found myself in a pole dancing class. I genuinely have a whole heap of respect for people who have mastered […]

Powerlifting Power Woman

I wrote about Melissa last year. Her training and drive have always been inspiring but since she got into weights, her levels of awesome have skyrocketed. I’m lucky enough to call her a friend and it’s been great to see how her sharing her journey so honestly has helped so many others. She recently made […]

Go Hard or Go Home?

Oh hey there! It’s been a while! I figured it was time for a little training update from myself. Earlier in the year, I announced that I would be climbing Mount Kilimanjaro in September, so that was to be my training goal for the year. For one reason or another, that never happened, so I […]

Misty Copeland & THAT Ad

I love everything about this ad. When I saw it for the first time last week, my heart raced as I watched it. I can think of few things that so powerfully get across the message of female athleticism, not giving up and being at the top of your game, than this. As fit women, […]

The Power of Pacing

My race pack for Hackney Half Marathon remained unopened until the day before race day. I hadn’t trained. Well, not in the traditional sense – I’m active every day, so I knew my body would comply and carry me through the majority of it, I just didn’t know how much I’d be paying for that […]
