Feature Friday – Aly’s Away Running.

Feature Friday – Aly’s Away Running.

Hello everyone 🙂

Welcome back to Feature Friday! Today’s post is all about my wonderful best friend Aly! She has dipped her toe into the world of blogging and writes all about health, fitness and her greatest past time: running.


Could you please tell us a little about yourself? A wee back ground story of Aly’s Away Running? – I am a really keen runner and I am trying to build on my distances, push myself out of my comfort zone, do different things. So, I wanted a place to document my running journey to keep myself accountable and so that I would have something to look back on in years from now. However I am now really keen to inspire others to take up running, and to explore the world around them, so I hope my blog can do this too.
