The Running Student

A University Students' Journey from Ultra Laziness to Ultra Marathons


'Running? WHY would you run?', said overweight, demotivated Marie 6 years ago. Fast-forward to today: I am a running enthusiast with many races completed and many more planned. Why? Because I found my passion and managed to lose over 25kg in the process. Now I am a healthy 21 year-old woman who could talk about running for hours... so that's what I'm here to do!


Welcome to my blog, where I tell you how my races kill me, review my favourite running shoes, bake my favourite cakes and reveal my opinion onto young runner's who need inspiration.
