The Bangor 10k is one of the most scenic events in Northern Ireland for local runners. The event is sponsored by George Best Belfast City Airport and had attracted runners from around the globe. But what would I make of the event? And would I even finish it?
Twirl Fit in Bangor, County Down, is one of only a few places in Northern Ireland that teaches pole dancing as a form of fitness. Beginning at the bottom level, I had a go at one of the most talked about fitness classes in recent years.
Bangor Parkrun is the weekly event for local runners in my area who want a time (and a bit of competition) for running 5k. Ward Park in Bangor, Northern Ireland is home to one of the country’s weekly Parkruns where you can take part for free and work on your running.
Go Faster Food was the first book from Kate Percy and introduced people to the idea that food can be tasty, be good for you, and help with your training. Over the years, Kate has developed her recipes and knowledge to help her kids perform better.
The Ards Half Marathon and Walk is the annual race which helps to see in the summertime in Newtownards. Hundreds of people from the area come to take part. As running has become a more popular sport, we have seen people come from across the water to take part and collect some bling.
Ultimate Strongman is one of the toughest challenges of strength that a person can go through. On 1st July 2017, the Battle of Britain came to Bangor, Northern Ireland. Four nations competed against each other for the top prize in front of a crowd of thousands.

I’m one of those people who seem to get into trouble without trying. This tends to happen because I don’t think things through. Sometimes it can get me into a spot of mischief and looking like a complete idiot. Other times it makes me looking like a complete badass and living legend. After running 10k the other day, I’m not sure what my current status is.
When it comes to weight loss or anything like that, it can be confusing. I’m no expert on the subject but I can spot a load of rubbish from a mile off. I have no time for fad diets or the latest craze. So when I got asked to review “The Secret of Weight”, I was a little skeptical.
There is nothing like a sport event to bring people together and cheer for their favourite athlete. But the ladies often get overlooked when it comes to sporting ability. Just read some of the headlines that appeared since Rio 2016 Olympics started. But I’m not one to dwell on what those idiots who work in print think. We, the generation of the internet, milky sweet lattes, and adult colouring books; we know better. And we know that the ladies who are competing in Rio are kicking ass. Here are my top 10 inspiring women Olympians of all time who deserve gold for winning at life.
