How it Started/ How it’s Going

So this is quite the journey, huh? I started this blog because I felt alone in my experience of being harassed on the run. I was worried that my anger was mis-seated, that I was overreacting, making a big deal out of nothing. because that’s what I had been told I was doing. We, as…

Winter Running – Is it Safe?

So, lockdown 2.0, hey? Who’d have thought at the beginning of April that we’d be back here again (or still?), but this time with the looming presence of darkness hanging over us at about 4pm. I’ll be completely honest, I’m a fair weather runner. There’s no better reason to run than a crisp, autumn day.…

Pippa’s Story #quitthecatcall

As confident and badass as someone appears to be, more often than not, their experiences with harassment affect them. It’s not always visible, but it’s there.

In fact, we should be even more vocal about it – until we feel safe on the streets, whether that’s running or going about our day-to-day lives every week needs to be Street Harassment Awareness week.…

Jess’ Story #quitthecatcall

Street Harassment Awareness Week STOP Street Harassment is an international campaign aiming to raise awareness against Street Harassment – every year they head an awareness week and, it just so happens, my campaign has conveniently cat-call collided head first into it. I wanted to take this opportunity to begin to share some of the experiences…

A Marathon of the Mind

I’m ashamed to say I’ve never run a marathon. Everyone and their mothers seem to have ticked 26.2 off their bucket list. Especially in the social media running community. There was a time when hitting that kind of distance was for elites only. It was an Olympic event, impressive to the regular hobbyist jogger, seemingly…

My Story #quitthecatcall

Cat Calling. Let’s talk about it. When I started writing this post, at the beginning of the Corona-induced lockdown I had my thoughts organised. I felt calm and concise in what I wanted to say.
