I run because I love food

About me

I don’t like diets. Largely because I like food. Especially sausages, pasta, chocolate, peanut butter, crisps and cake with a nice cup of tea.

But I don’t want to turn into a bloater. So I run about a bit in an attempt to burn off the excess calories. I’m still probably a little bit over my “ideal” weight according to the BMI chart, but at least I’m relatively happy. People on diets often look a bit miserable, don’t they?

So, this is my blog about running. And eating. I’m carrying a little passenger at the moment too, so there’s a bit here about being pregnant too. While running. And eating.

Just wanted to say hi and I’ve just read your blog mentioned in today’s telegraph. I’ve a huge love of food and although I walk maybe 5/6 miles a day due to my job, I find myself at least 2 stone overweight. I’ve just taken up running and have set myself a difficult goal in getting ready to do a marathon in nov. Enjoying your blog and will use it as a motivational tool. Cheers

I’m just looking around your blog. I love to eat too and would like to do the San Sebastian pilgrimage walk on of these days. I imagine one could eat all day long and not have to worry about gaining weight. Even a couple of beers in the evening would be guilt free. Great blog by the way.
