A year in people #80 – Tess

When I first saw Tess I saw this edgy, trendy, cool chick. You know the kind, the ones that you can feel a bit intimidated by. She had a cool social media presence, worked in some trendy job in Brighton and had the best notebook for this running writing workshop we were at. And wore... Continue Reading →

A year in people #74 – Emma

“Tara! I need your help.” My friend Emma shouted from downstairs. “I think you need to call an ambulance.” She was staying with me after an operation in which a metal coil was put down the main (femoral) artery in her leg.  “I think something’s bleeding inside, it’s happened really quickly.” She lifted the covers...

I run.

I run. I just keep going. One foot, in front of the other. No end in sight, no time to think, nowhere to be. What goes through my mind? I couldn’t tell you. My whole life, and nothing at all. It’s blank, but so full it might burst. Like a conveyor belt, one thing after... Continue Reading →

I harboured dreams of having a bag packed and heading out into the unknown. I even persuaded... Continue Reading →

Queenstown Marathon – Nov 2018

I'd signed up for Queenstown marathon a few months before it, when I realised I hadn't set myself a challenge for a while. After doing the Wadi Rum Ultra in 2017, and then moving to New Zealand and it all going a little bit differently to how I had thought it would meant that I'd... Continue Reading →

A year in people #21 – Craig

I'd only been running for a few months. Always on my own, always along the back trails of the village where I lived. Plodding along, quite happy with what I was doing, my only competition was myself on my Runkeeper app, where I was trying to go a little bit further each time than the... Continue Reading →
