A mini-adventure 30 minutes from home

When I think about the word adventure or holiday I think of two things. Travel and Money! Last weekend I decided to turn this on it’s head and went on an over night adventure 30 minutes from home and spent less than £150. It was Jamie’s birthday and I wanted to do something special. For us, we would much prefer…

Total Warrior 2017. Where do you set your limit?

It’s easy to say that the run up to Total Warrior wasn’t a normal pre-race week. Normally I’m buzzing, planning my meals, training and recovery so I turn up on the start line the best version of my running self. This week however has been filled with worrying, work and toothache. Not life changing crappy stuff. But enough to throw…

Pre-race tips, it’s time, BEAST TIME

So it’s the week of the Prime Four Beast race. If this is the first time you’ve done something like this you’re probably going through a mix of emotions… Why did I let my friends convince me to sign up? Have I done enough training? Will said friends above pull my ass out the mud if I get stuck? OMG I’M…

Juggling real life, running and everything inbetween

It’s no secret that my life is always super busy (as it is for a lot of people)! For me, a standard day can start at 6am, consist of freelance work, normal work, training and at the moment Project Awesome twice a week. If you’ve not been along to one of our Thursday sessions at Lululemon WHAT ARE YOU DOING WITH YOUR LIFE?

Fiji and the sing a Disney song, epiphany moment

So I may have mentioned it once or twice (or maybe a million times) that recently I went to Fiji and married my favourite person, Jamie, and now we are the awesome Mr and Mrs Fraser-Davidson. Needless to say the whole experience was INCREDIBLE (bar the BA flight issues, screw you BA). Fiji is an incredible place, the people were…

Check myself before I wreck myself

First things first, if ANYONE even mutters the “I told you so” phrase they will be met with a sharp “get fucked” and be on a hug ban for at least 24hrs (that includes you Jamie). I might have mentioned that I like running and training, A LOT. I also have a full-time job, have just moved flat, am planning…

8 weeks to get ready for my biggest challenge yet

When I signed up for Rat Race Dirty Weekend, I had at least a 10 months training plan in mind. It was going to be badassly awesome and put into practice all the things I have learnt about running over the past couple of years. But yeah, sometimes things don’t go to plan. Fast forward 8 months. I had just…

The Gathering: Dusk till Dark. R.E.S.P.E.C.T

Last night was a big night. After 7 months of injuries and an operation in January, I was taking part in my first race of 2017. I’d booked The Gathering: Dusk till Dark as a last minute treat, deciding I couldn’t handle spectating at yet another race. (FYI race jealousy is a thing!). At 7-8k of trails and only £20,…
