It’s not often an advert gets my attention. But this one certainly did. It is awesome on so many levels that I just felt I had to share it. It is produced by Sport England and is part of a campaign called THIS GIRL CAN. (Follow the #ThisGirlCan hashtag on social media.) It’s […]
For those of you who have been following my Race for Life training progress (and perhaps getting very jealous at my *cough* brilliant running technique,) you may have noticed I’ve been unusually quiet. All a bit ominous, right?! My name is Kate and I haven’t run (again) for ten days.
I may have mentioned from time to time that I happen to frequent a certain café most days, (ie. every day.) It’s my office … (that just happens to make awesome coffee,) and it’s where I come to do most of my writing. I spent most of my degree here – writing essays on Shakespeare […]
I’m pleased to report that this week’s training for Race For Life video doesn’t come from the café this week ….. instead, from the mean streets of Medway. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8xWeM4Fuv1g So … how did I manage to finally get my booty of the sofa and go running?

On Easter Sunday, when I should have been eating Creme Eggs in bed I […]
It’s ironic that I’m writing this particular post from the confines of my sick bed. I’m still laid up with a crappy neck (medical term.) It’s extremely painful, I’m drugged up to the eyeballs and I feel like chopping my head off … just to get some relief. So what better time to sign up […]
For those of you who follow my blog, you’ll know I’m a fledgling runner. I’ve talked about how tough I’ve found it but also how it’s finally paying dividends and the weight is slowly but surely coming off. I’m not a lean, mean running machine (yet) … but it’s a start.
I miss my office. My café office that is. I miss the coffee, the customers staring at my laptop wondering what the hell I’m doing, the staff and especially the scones. Oh the scones (*stares dreamily off into the distance and dribbles slightly*) “My name is Kate and it’s been ten days since my last […]
