This is the last London ETC for 2016 and what a last edition I have for you all. Meems is one of the best people I know. She is determined, whip smart, and so funny I usually spend all my time with her laughing until my belly hurts. I met her at a run and our friendship has been full of sweat sessions, coffee, and all the food in the world. She has battled with depression and is so vocal about de-stigmatising mental health issues. She is running her first marathon next year (hello London Marathon 2017!) and I can’t tell you all how thrilled I am that Meera answered my questions. All her answers are below the cut. ENJOY!
I was trying to think of a way to introduce you all to the latest amazing person to star in my London ETC series but when it comes to Emma, the first thing I want you all to know about her is that I LOVE HER. She is one of the strongest, most determined, most inclusive people I know. What’s more she is one of those genuinely lovely people who actually wants you to succeed. Emma is a former athlete, keen runner and Nike pacer. Like me, she was a Games Maker in 2012 (and like me she loved it as much as I did!). Unlike me she has completed an indoor Iron Man and the 24 hour burpee challenge (!!) In this weeks’ London ETC she talks about her love of training outdoors, how she honours her father’s memory, and what healthy means to her.
Tameka Small was the first Psycle instructor I ever spun with. Or should that be ‘went spinning’ with, or even ‘sweated-so-much-on-a-stationary-bike-that-I-thought-I-was-going-to-drown’ with? Her engery was through the roof and though years have passed since then I have had the pleasure of training with her multiple times since, especially in Nike Events, where she is a N+TC Elevated Trainer. She is the latest wonderful person to star in my London ETC series. She talked to me about her favourite areas of London, what healthy means to her, and how she plans to slay 2017. Enjoy!
Welcome back to another London ETC! Today the star of the show is Tashi Skervin – runner, blogger, PT in training, and all round wonderful human. She was one of the first people I ever followed on Instagram and I have absolutely loved following her journey. To have her star in this week’s London ETC has made my day! She talks to me all about her favourite areas of London, what healthy means to her, and how she plans to slay 2017. Enjoy!
London ETC is one of my favourite feature on this blog. It’s the chance for me to talk to some amazing women (and men!) about their love of London and fitness and food – you can read past editions here. This weeks’ edition is slightly later than normal but all for a very good reason. Earlier this morning Psycle hosted a blogger ride – have a look at my Instagram and my Instagram story here for all the fun – and today’s London ETC is with none other than instructor and CEO of Psycle herself, Rhian Stephensen!
