WELCOME TO SHELLEY RUNS, I'M SHELLEY!


We all (parents, professionals, you name it) know the struggle of finding time to train, keep fit, maintain a healthy lifestyle for yourself and your family and juggle life. It’s no small feat and it’s no wonder that there is a world-wide obesity problem and why convenience has become an expectation.

I wanted to capture my journey and share my experiences – trying to keep it real and raw and always with humour (because if you can’t laugh about it, you might cry about it!)

On my blog, I like to document all my training, nutrition (if glugging a Coca Cola or beer after your marathon can be described as nutrition?), races and more in my journey with running and ultra-running whilst being a generally busy person. Use it, don't use it!
