Running End To End | 874 Miles In A Year | Three Months In

March 31, 2021 admin 0

What a month March has been in terms of running end to end. My mum and I have now crossed the 300 mile mark! We still have a massive 574 miles to go but having already ran 300, we are well ahead of schedule. This in itself feels brilliant as it just gives us that buffer if anything was to put a halt to our running for any reason at any point throughout the year. […]

February 28, 2021 admin 0

Today is the last day of February and we have just got back from our last run of the month and I am glad to report the running End to End challenge is still moving forward at a good pace. I haven’t quit yet, so that’s something. This month seems to have flown by really quickly and it seems to be turning from the depths of winter to the start of spring. Instead of running […]

If you have been following my blog for a while, or at least since the start of the year, you will know that I signed up to the End to End challenge where you need to run 874 miles, the equivalent of Land’s End to John O Groat’s, in a year. Week 1 was hard  and really made me wonder what I had done but I carried on, with the support of my mum who […]

Running End to End | 874 miles in a year | One week in

January 8, 2021 admin 2

This year I signed up to the End to End challenge. A virtual race where you aim to run a total of 874 miles (1,406 km), the equivalent of running from Land’s End to John O’ Groats, in a year. 874 miles is a hell of a lot. To put it into perspective last year I ran 399 miles, so this year in order to complete the challenge I need to double it and then […]

What I see when I look to 2021

January 2, 2021 admin 0

2020 was the worst year of our lives and not just because of the global pandemic. As a family we went through so much heartache and just because the bells have rang and the date has changed doesn’t mean that heartache has stopped. In fact in some ways it’s harder knowing those we lost in 2020 will never get to experience this year and it feels like we are leaving them behind, even though they […]

My experience of running with the Camelbak Zephyr vest

November 26, 2020 admin 1

I started running a couple of months after I had Layla. Mainly to lose some baby weight, tone up and try and get a bit fitter. Little did I know that running was going to become my savoir during a pandemic and then two lock downs. When I first started running I struggled to complete a 3km route we had mapped out. If I am really honest I struggled to get to the 1km mark […]

5 ways to boost your confidence and self esteem

November 17, 2020 admin 1

I would hate to be a teenage or young adult growing up these days. It was hard enough back in the 90’s and 00’s but to become a young women and start dating today would, in my opinion, be so much harder. These days everything is captured on camera, whether you want it to be or not. And all those photos are put out there for the world to see, to like, to comment on […]

What do parent bloggers bring to the table?

August 12, 2020 admin 0

I first started blogging about 5 years ago as a hobby. I worked for an online blog where I would review beauty products and although I absolutely loved trying out new make up and face creams I knew in my heart of hearts I was not cut out to be a beauty blogger, not long term with that as my only focus anyway, so when an opportunity to review a long weekend in Scotland came […]

5 Top Tips By A Paediatrician On How To Start Weaning

June 8, 2020 admin 1

Weaning can be a fantastic journey to go on with your little one but it can also be a scary time, especially for first time parents. Add to this the new(ish) hype about baby led weaning (BLW) and it can feel very daunting as you prepare to go from giving your baby nothing but milk to all of a sudden allowing them to chow down on pretty much everything (within reason). Despite Layla being my […]
