Today – Lottie Murphy – Pilates Fitness Article

Today – Lottie Murphy Today I’m okay. Actually I’m more than okay. I’m almost off all my medication and I’m doing really good. I’m 100% recovered. I’ve been feeling myself for about 3 months now. I still can’t really believe it. I don’t think my loved ones can either. I gave one of my best friends a little squeeze and a kiss on the head the other weekend and she teared up and said to me “you’re back aren’t you.” …

Hackney Half Marathon 2019 Race Recap – Fitness Article

‘This is probably the coolest half marathon in the UK…look around’ So many trendy East-London runners (man buns, beards, cool piercings and pink hair). I ran the 5.5K in 2017 with Tom (read the race recap here) and in all honesty, wasn’t that impressed.

I’ve submitted all 75+ recipes but haven’t quite finished all of the introductions, menu plans or nutrition guidelines yet.
