Hi, I’m Lisa. You may be wondering why this blog is called Pancake Muddy Paws, one of my children had a teddy bear that used to have to come everywhere with us. We were on holiday one year and asked if Teddy actually had a name. It was at this point we were told that he was called Pancake Muddy Paws… because he likes pancakes and always has muddy paws ! In some ways that also sums me up…. but in my case I like cake but I’ve also developed a love of trail running and tend to be a bit muddy πŸ™‚

I’ve not always been a runner. I didn’t start running until I was 42 having spend most of my life until that point as a couch potato. My main motivation for starting running was to lose weight and to prove my family wrong by completing a 5k. Since then I’ve gone on to run marathons, an ultra marathon and taken up wild camping. I’m also now a grandmother and decided to train and qualify as a UK Athletics running coach so I could start a local running group for people that want to run for fun and fitness (we have a Facebook Page here !)

This blog is my place to write about what I do, the training, kit, events and hopefully encourage you to get outside πŸ™‚
