Homepage Welcome


Welcome to Couch To Runner – a website which documents my personal journey from being an overweight couch potato to finding the love of running and training to improve my fitness and finishing times. I have lost 3 stone since I started running in November 2016, and completed my first marathon in April 2018. I now aim to one day complete a 100 mile ultra event, and would love to complete all of the Abbott World Marathon Majors.

What To Expect?

You will find training and racing advice, as well as lessons that I have learnt along the way whilst training for and running a marathon. There will also be gear and event reviews where I will highlight products which offer great value for money, and also find top deals on all things running and fitness related. In addition, there will be guest posts from others who have inspiring stories and advice to share, as well as motivational posts to help you get through any training slumps you may experience.


Please head over to the Blog section where you can find all posts. You can also use the navigation bar on the right to search via categories, see the latest posts, or browse the entire archive.

For more information about myself or the blog, please visit the About page.

The Race Calendar page lists upcoming races that I have entered, or ones which I am considering signing up for.
