May 17, 2016 | Uncategorized | 18 comments


Have you picked up a copy of Women’s Health magazine or been onto their website this month? If so, you might have seen a familiar face… If not, go and check it out!!

Well as part of my partnership with them, leading up to the New York City Marathon in November, they are giving you guys the chance to win a running outfit plus trainers to start training for your own goals and races.


I chose one of my fave outfits to give away; the Vazee Breathe trainers and Night Floral leggings seen above, plus the Perfect Tank to match your new shoes! I’ve been wearing these leggings non-stop and have received a lot of compliments on them, and the trainers and tank are really light and comfortable.

WIN New Balance

I’m working on part of the #Iamthecompetition campaign with New Balance, trying to encourage myself and others to focus on their own sporting performance, about competing against yourself, being better than you were yesterday. They asked me to create a pledge of how I am going to do this…

‘Tomorrow I will put the work in at the gym as well as on the track’

I know that my running improves when I strength and cross train, as well as run. My goal over the next few months as I train for New York is to do just that!


To enter the competition to win the outfit, I want you to comment on this instagram photo with your own pledge using the hashtag #iamthecompetition. Don’t forget to follow me on Instagram and follow New Balance UK!  If you don’t have instagram, comment with your pledge in the comment section below!

Open to UK residents only, one entry per person, competition closes Friday both May at 6pm and winner will be randomly chosen and notified on Saturday 21st May. Full ts and cs coming soon… 

I can’t wait to see what your pledges will be – GOOD LUCK!

P.S how much make-up does it look like I’m wearing above – I hardly even recognise myself!!

    Great competition, thank you for the chance to win! I’m currently training for my second half-marathon, after coming back from injury. I struggle with confidence when it comes to my running but I’m determined to have more faith in myself in the future!

    Tomorrow I will… make sure I’m focusing not just on my running, but my stretching and cross training too.

    I’m running the Chicago Marathon in October, having been carrying lots on niggles (tight calves and hips), I know core, cross training and stretching will make me a better runner
