We're half way through May which means I've reached the half way point for Miles for Mind. I challenged myself to run 75 miles across May in order to raise awareness around mental health and well being. I'll be honest, it's been a bit more of a bumpy ride to get here than I'd anticipated.… Continue reading Miles for Mind Update
I've a quick question, have you ever used a mantra when you've been running or doing any exercise where you've got to push yourself?

Like a lot of people once I truly committed to running I found it quite addictive. I'd dabbled in running on and off over a number of years before it really stuck with me. Years ago I'd listened to an old housemate talk about running and one evening feeling inspired I tried running with her.… Continue reading Run Mumma Run…where it all began
I've just realised this is my third blog and I've not actually introduced myself properly yet, how very rude of me! Sorry about that. Hi, I'm Sam. I'm English living in Wales, which is neither here nor there most of the time unless the Six Nations is on! I should probably add here that my… Continue reading This is me…
