About The Messy Runner

A big fat hello from The Messy Runner! Cheddar Half Marathon

My name is Daisy Bee, and I am a messy person who likes to run.

I live in a pocket of South West England with my boyfriend Harry and an as-yet unidentified pet (I’m working on it. My heart is vying for a Scoland terrier.).

I started running about three-and-a-half years ago, to try and get fit when I was a bit of a low ebb. Now I love it, and I get seriously tetchy and unbearable when I can’t go. This year I completed my first tough-as-hell half marathon, and I can’t wait to get onto the next one.

This blog is about running, sure, but it’s also about scattyness and hopefulness, and yes, [my] messiness and meanderings in all parts of life; the electric mornings when I can dart out of bed at 5am, and those days when I really struggle. And I want to see where my running takes me, even if it’s just in a hazy loop back to my front door, happy and spent.
