This Is My Way: Laura's Story

Media lawyer, Laura Murray, initially started her fitness and running journey with a charity race. Soon after she was running around the lakes of Switzerland, where she was living at the time. Fast forward to today and Laura is an ambassador for both Under Armour and Science in Sport, cementing her feet firmly in fitness. She has kept her love for running though; she promotes the sport as an LDN Brunch Club run leader.

Neil used to be a bookworm, an "indoor" type if ever there was one. After finishing a PhD he writes short stories about spooky places and odd people. Living in Switzerland, the Canadian Rockies and the north east region of the USA convinced him that there was something to be said for this whole outdoor thing. Now he runs everywhere he can, competing in races most weekends and endlessly planning the next great adventure to some far flung part of the world. Recent trips include Costa Rica, where he tried and failed to surf; Vietnam, where he almost got stuck in an underground tunnel; and back to Canada, where he came face-to-face with a bear. Watch this space for further updates on Neil's global bumblings and the occasional athletic success.
