My name is Hannah and I really like running. I used to be quite terrible at it, but now I’m kind of alright and hoping to get better.
I’m a fairly recent convert to the joys of running, having only started running regularly in the summer of 2010. Before that I was a pretty unhealthy ex-student-type who survived on cheap lager and optimism. I’ve become a little bit evangelical about jogging and so this blog is where I channel that energy. It’s a pretty personal running diary where I bounce ideas around, research training techniques, keep note of my mishaps and track my progress.
I’m currently residing and running around North London and I run with the Mornington Chasers running club. When I’m not pissing about in my trainers I can be found on my bikes making aeroplane noises, working as a cycling instructor and training co-ordinator, begging folk in borough councils to give me money for bike-related projects, lecturing in cultural theory, swimming in the Hampstead Heath ponds, knitting in a pub, or watching some sci-fi shit on Netflix.
Oh, and I know it’s all about the taking part, but…
