In her corner

This week I had the privilege to chatting with Liseli Sitali at In Her Corner about the highs and lows experienced throughout my career, especially in relation to Hackney Laces. From the rape threats to winning BBC Sports Personality of the Year for London, it sure has been a ride. Sharing my learnings ahead of… Continue reading In her corner

Yet another lovely piece of walking inspiration from Do The Green Thing. Born to Walk is all about our lives spent walking. One third of our life is spent walking. We walk over 3000 steps per day. Watch this video and get out walking – we were born to walk through life.
