Running is undoubtedly my most favourite sport and I was delighted to be invited to the Running Awards 2016 at the London O2 by Strava last month.
You could have seen me mentioning the Running awards on my blog before, but I was not lucky enough to be one of the finalists. That did not stop me from having an absolutely amazing time meeting fellow fitness bloggers and also some of the incredible finalists who definitely deserved to be in the finals.
I also finally met Juliet McGrattan (whom I have known via Twitter and her blog for a while), and we had a lovely time together. She is also into marathons, so hopefully one day we will run one together!
As I was invited to the awards by Strava, I also had a chance to attend a little pre-awards Q & A session with Simon Klima (Strava UK ), Tom Williams (Chief Operating Officer at Parkrun) and Martin Yelling (running coach and co-presenter of Marathon Talk).
It was a very interesting session and we have learnt some very useful facts about this super fast growing “social network for athletes”.
STRAVA is not just for cyclists or very competitive people. Most importantly it’s for people to connect, share their updates and encourage others too.
Anyway, I was very pleased to see a few brands and individuals I support to be among the finalists and some also to be the winners.
What a night!
