Run Badger Run

I am a sewster that runs.  Or tries to.  I have charted epiphanies in the battle against my motivation along the way & they can be found here:

I have also started another blog about running, Run Like a Girl.  Have a look if you are interested!

I’ve sewn some of my own gear.  As I post about them I’ll share the links here:

Races I’ve entered – why not make yourself known if you’re also doing them!?

Favorite motivational tweeter – makes so much sense!

    Hi! Would it be really odd if I turned your playlist into a spotify playlist so I can give it a whirl whilst i’m on the go?
    I’ll make sure to name it in your honour as creator of the mix.

    Hurrah! A fellow running crafter /sewer. Love the idea of making running gear – I am going to trawl through your blog for inspiration. And super well done on running the London marathon!
