About Me

My name is Vikki and I started this blog way back in 2009 as a training diary to accompany a charity challenge I undertook to climb Mount Kilimanjaro. It's been through a couple of iterations and is now where I write about my training, the events I take part in and all fitness and health aspects of my life.
I'm in my 30's, based near Reading in Berkshire and until recently fit my sport in around a full time job, part time study (to become a PT). I recently quit my office job to freelance as a Personal Trainer (scary stuff) and can enjoy teaching classes and coaching for RunFitUK as much as working with people one to one. Food is always on my mind; I've have been a vegetarian for over 20 years with no notable detriment to my fitness or health and really enjoy cooking and baking. I eat therefore I run.
I never used to be sporty but I'm now a runner first and foremost with a penchant for collecting medals, several marathons under my belt and a worrying propensity towards endurance events. More recently I have been dipping my toes into the world of triathlon. I'm not speedy but I am determined. There is always "one more race" in my diary and I love a challenge!
