As some of you may have guessed from my Instagram and Twitter I am currently working on a project with Nike and RWD magazine. This is so incredibly exciting for me and I’ve been desperate to tell you all about it!
The Nike Women’s 10k is taking place on the 21st of June, and I’m working with Nike, RWD and the lovely Hannah of Purservere, Inna of Start Up Your Happiness, and freelance Journalist Nardene to promote the importance of the event and women’s running. Not to mention the amazing Nike kit that JD Sports have provided to really enhance training – it’s hard not to feel motivated by new gym wear and bright colours.
This is significant for me because I really do believe that running is one of the most important parts of my life both physically and mentally. The clarity of thought and confidence of action that running gives to me is something that I take with me everywhere now, whether my running shoes are on or not, and this is something I would love to share with all the women in my life.
If you have a great story about how you got into running or what it means to you then please share it with me as I would love to share these experiences on my blog in one giant post of motivation. Whilst fit celebrities and athletes always motivate me to think about working out, it’s the real people that I know and see in the instagram community that make me lace up my trainers!
This means that an event like the Nike Women’s 10k is an amazing opportunity to make running sociable and a celebration.
Coming up I have lots of exciting training opportunities, photos and even a video to share with you all. However, for now I want to introduce you to the amazing girls that I am running with – getting to know them is already the best part of this very exciting opportunity!
Following her curiosity and passion for all things London, Inna set up Start Up Your Happiness as a way to share her active lifestyle tips and experiences that make her happy. Expect restaurant reviews, yoga, innovative fitness concepts and quirky hidden gems.
“I am a UK ambassador for Zova fitness app that helps women exercise in a fun and exciting way, as well as I am an alumni of Imperial College Business School where I did my MBA. I work in Digital and absolutely love the benefits technology and innovations bring and the way they improve our lives.”
Like me Hannah got into to fitness a little late in the game, but having set herself the challenge of running the London Marathon in 2014 she found her life unknowingly turned to other activities that challenged her mentally and physically.
A big believer in thoughts becoming things, attracting what we want in life through positive thinking, her blog is an account of what motivated her to get into fitness and how it has changed her life for the good.
“Not only being physically fitter but mentally happier and fitter, I have not finished my journey yet and want to set myself more challenges to train and accomplish for
Running, sweating, yoga-ing, spinning and my passion, music! Do join me for what promises to be some varied, random, yet fun experiences!”
“Being a freelance journalist and brand consultant, I’m normally raving until the early hours, drinking like a fish, globe trotting and most definitely only working behind the scenes on projects like the Nike+ Women’s 10k, providing editorial content. But having worked on a previous Nike+ London 10k race, (blogging and editing for the Nike Run Dem Crew) this time around I thought to truly understand and gain a deeper insight into exactly what each runner goes through, I would set myself the challenge of entering and getting fit; especially because it is specifically for women. I’m hoping to not only get fitter but enhance my lifestyle and become healthier on a day-to-day basis, having already cut out alcohol and altered my diet accordingly. Running within a squad and amongst established fitness fanatics Polly, Inna and Hannah can only push me to be my best. #BetterForIt”
