We’ve made it! It was a pretty tough half. I ran it in 2h and 3min. Not too bad considering it was soooo hilly!

Good morning! I’m getting ready for the second race this year that I will run for charity. We have just launched a crowdfunding campaign to raise money for female prisoners and activists in Vietnam. Check out our Go Fund Me page and wish me luck!

This week’s fitness challenge: wall sit, 10 minutes and 25 seconds. My legs will hurt tomorrow!

Happy International Day of Happiness! This year we’re focusing on the importance of relationships, kindness and helping each other. Unfortunately, many of us are still very unhappy. One in four people in the world is affected by mental health problems. There are available treatments but nearly two-thirds of people never seek help. Stigma, discrimination and neglect prevent health care from reaching people who really need it. We shouldn’t allow this to happen.

Happy International Women’s Day! I wish all the ladies to stay strong, positive and inspired. Together we can do amazing things!
Here’s a picture of me running the last race. In that moment I was seriously thinking of quitting. My body was aching and I was getting sunburned and dehydrated. Then my thoughts went to the courageous ladies in Vietnam who don’t give up on their fight for freedom of expression. That gave me the strength to make it to the finish line. It was an amazing experience!

Got my number. Now it’s only a few hours left to the race. The weather doesn’t look great. Hopefully it will clear up overnight. Fingers crossed!

Good morning people! Here is my final race calendar. This year I’ll be running 5 long-distance races to raise awareness about female prisoners and activists in Vietnam. Soon, together with The 88 Project, we will launch a crowd-funding campaign to raise money for the cause. Over the coming months I’ll be sharing more updates on my website and social media. Currently, I'm preparing for the following runs:

Transgrancanaria – Canary Islands – 24th February – 30 km
Sheffield - United Kingdom – 8th March – Half Marathon
Pitztal - Austria – 4th August – 26 km
North York Moors - United Kingdom – 29th September – Half Marathon
Suffolk - United Kingdom – 20th October – Marathon

As a woman I believe it’s important to show solidarity with courageous and determined ladies who fight for their basic human rights. I hope that my runs and the awareness campaign will help their voices to be heard. Thanks in advance for the support!

I really enjoyed today’s hill running session in Greenwich Park. It’s such a beautiful place. Can’t wait for the spring!

Sunday run completed. For the first time I was wearing my full race gear, carrying 1,5 l of water. It took me a while to get used to it. I ran a half marathon in just above 2h. Not my best time but it was good to put some miles in! The first charity race is in only 3 weeks!

I’m being spoilt tonight. My boyfriend just cooked this lovely dinner for me. Roast #salmon, #tomatoes, #potatoes and a #rocket salad. It tastes amazing!
Tomorrow I’m going for a long run and I’ll need a lot of energy. Time to enjoy some food now!

Happy #timetotalk day! It was pretty tough to wake up this morning but I’ve just made it to the gym. Some people ask me how I find motivation to train. Definitely, having fitness goals and races planed helps me a lots. However, the main reason why I chose active lifestyle is the impact it has on my personal well-being. Four years ago I was struggling with depression and insomnia. I was going through a divorce and stress took its toll on my body and mind. With small changes to my lifestyle, by adding some exercise and improving my diet, I managed to keep the problem under control. I still occasionally suffer from anxieties, but I’m in a much better place. Physically and mentally. I’m sharing this story because mental health is still a taboo and people are afraid to talk about it. Mental health illnesses affect one in four of us and this needs to change. By getting people talking about mental health we can take the stigma out of something that affects us all.
