‘Triathlon, Duathlon, Training & Tech’ is what’s on offer at The5krunner blog, written by a mysterious – but presumably very fit – fan of running.

A labour of love. Sleep is for wimps’. After making sure you get a good night of sleep yourself, check this blog out.

Now we’ve said so long to Father Christmas for another year, Father Fitness (aka Paul Stainthorpe) is here to hand out the gift of keeping fit – parcelled into posts covering Exercise & Kids, Family, Fitness, Health, Muscle, Nutrition, Weight Loss and Reviews. A ‘normal guy who just wants to try and keep fit’ himself, Paul’s continuing journey from ‘unfit dad to fitter dad’ is easy to relate to, particularly when staying on the sofa can be so tempting.

Runners World and the Evening Standard’s ‘number 1 runner to follow on Instagram’, Susie of Susie Chan Endurance Runner has been racing for around a decade now and certainly knows her stuff.

Not right now, but it happened…’
