Hills and thrills at the Bradenham Bolt 10k – Fitness Article

The Bradenham Bolt 10k has always been one of those races that I haven’t paid much attention to, as being something right on my doorstep…How wrong I was not to give it a go until this year! It has been a wonderful opportunity to explore the ancient beech woodland and chalk flower meadows around the picturesque Bradenham Manor and West Wycombe Estate which I consider my home turf. The event is organised by the National Trust and this year all…

Putting my Ankles to the Test at the West Wycombe Trails 10k – Fitness Article

The West Wycombe Trails 10k is only in its second year, organised by the local Hazlemere Runners running club. Unfortuntely, I had to give it a miss last year as I had reached the halfway point in my pregnancy and I felt ready to put running on hold until after my son Alex was born. I was therefore very much looking forward to lacing up for it this June. Although not an official club event, quite a few of us…

Magical Bluebell Forest Run: Ibstone Circle 10k Race – Fitness Article

The last Sunday of April 2019 appeared to be super popular for running races – it is not only the iconic London Marathon that took place that day, but also two local races to me: the Danesfield Dash 10k and the Ibstone Circle 10k. I had not got into the VLM through the ballot and I had run Danesfield twice already, so I ended up toeing up the start line at Ibstone Common on that cloudy morning. The iconic common…

Turning Up the Gear: Datchet Dashers 20-Mile Training Run – Fitness Article

I would like to kick off this blog post with some breaking news! I have finally joined a proper running club after having been a runner for over 10 years. Now that I have got my running mojo back following my pregnancy, I joined the Marlow Striders Club in March. My Hubby has been a member for about a year now and I have also met lots of people through their various social events and get-togethers over the past year.…

My First Maverick Running Adventure: Original Buckinghamshire Half Marathon – Fitness Article

My First Maverick Running Adventure: Original Buckinghamshire Half Marathon After having Alex last November, I decided to focus on taking my running off the roads and into the countryside. My motivation behind this initially was to take off the pressure to be able to run at a particular pace whilst getting back into shape after pregnancy, and being able to focus more on enjoying the scenery. The beauty of running in nature is that the challenge is navigating different terrains…
