London Winter Run 2018 Medal

London Winter Run 2018 Medal

My first race of 2018 is done! And what an excellent one it was to start 2018 with. The Cancer Research London Winter Run is one I run every year – here is my race recap of the 2017 version. That was the day I hugged polar bears, ate a lot of Lindt, and went home crying because I got into a fight with a man who decided my legs were perfect to ram his pushchair against. I didn’t cry when telling him off but after – I was riding so high that day and he caused it all to crash down.

Well that took a down turn pretty quickly didn’t it? This year’s race thankfully didn’t end with tears of anger and frustration. It also didn’t end with tears of joy but a massive grin of happiness.

Run Junkie pop up in lululemon Marylebone

Run Junkie pop up in lululemon Marylebone

Earlier this week I had the chance to try Run Junkie in their lululemon Marylebone pop-up – an indoor running experience like no other. Running helps me to let go of what we don’t need and hold on to what inspires. That day at work hadn’t been a good day. There were so many worries and stresses going around my head and I was so tempted at cancelling. But I love running, and nothing helps pick my feet up and put a bounce in my step again like running.

The perfect turmeric latte is the stuff of myth and legend. Well I am here to tell you that you can cut your tower length hair and that you don’t have to prick your finger on that spinning wheel. Because it is true, I have done it.

For a lot of people, they start working out to lose weight. January the first comes up and people want to be fitter, tone up, and (for me at least) lose belly fat. I have said many times that I started running because I was jealous of my sister. That’s not the complete truth. I wanted to lose belly fat – I actually wanted to lose it quite badly. However constantly weighing myself and pinching the fat around my waist because very demoralising and mentally crippling very quickly.

Eventually my reasoning for working out moved and changed from weight loss to something else. Put very simply it made me happy. The post sweat endorphin high is amazing for both body and mind.
