In the Spotlight

Hello, I’m Charlie – a runner, Registered Dietitian and lover of travel. I believe anyone can run a marathon, I’ve transitioned from non-runner to 13 x Marathoner and Six Star Finisher. My blog champions fad-free, accessible wellbeing through fitness, nutrition and living life to the full.

It’s running that I started blogging about as a student over a decade ago. Since then it’s grown to cover Fashion, fitness, beauty, IVF Journey and my day-to-day life. Since then, having gone on to work with industry giants London Marathon, ECCO, Adidas, Underarmour, the blog has evolved into a career that 18-year-old Charlie could only ever have dreamed of… and a life in the Berkshire with my husband and fur baby that brings me so much joy.

This kind of occurrence is not uncommon amongst runners, particularly those that have a marathon or two under their belts. This nail is the fourth I’ve lost in the four years since running my first marathon – luckily it’s never been a big one!

So how do we avoid making our already mangled feet that little bit uglier and keep all ten toenails in tact, and what do we if/when we do lose them
