Its been a while since i have written a blog but i get asked this question almost every day. So here goes Weather 🌞❄☔ This one you cannot compare. British weather sucks.

In 2018 I got in the ballot to run Berlin marathon… why did I enter… cause it’s a ‘world major’ and it’s a MUST safe to say I spent most of my 2018 injured 😂 so I deferred to 2019. Before I made any decisions I wanted to see how my year went… if I could… Continue reading Berlin- the good the bad and the ugly… like really ugly.
Wow it feels like so long since I’ve written a blog! So thought I would do a quick update…. this summer I have raced a few times.
