Hello. That up there would be me, wearing some appropriately awful and neon running kit. I suffer from moderate to severe anxiety. In order to combat that anxiety, I began running. This blog is part mental health, part running, and a smidgen of anything else I feel writing about.
I’m 28 and live in London but I’m originally from the coast and still desperately miss the sea (it’s the smell). I work in business development for an international law firm. I can also be found on Twitter where I talk about mental health, running, other nonsense but really will spend most of my time making sarcastic and occasionally witty comments about what I’m watching on tv. Want to see my happy, if slightly sweaty face, and how the routes I run are awesome? For that, you’ll want Instagram.
Likes: The sea, cheese, The National, overly bright running kit, macarons (lemon ones plz), whisky (Scotch), the sun, other people’s pets, hoarding cookbooks, quoting the lyrics of Taylor Swift as if they’re life advice
Dislikes: Anxiety, mushrooms, cider, rain when I need to be outside, marmite, mayonnaise, the sound of packing tape being ripped off the roll
The tagline to this blog is a lyric taken from The National’s “The Geese of Beverly Road”. The title of most posts are song lyrics, so there’s a fun game for you.
