With the Virgin London Marathon just over a week away, we’re getting in the mood by sharing some of our favourite runners that we follow on Instagram. Looking at these girls’ feeds makes us want to pull on our trainers and head out into the fresh air for some running therapy. From their little, square photos we get inspiration on re-fuelling, training techniques that will make us go that little bit faster and also quite like to covet their running kit. Indulge the runner in you by following these Instagram accounts.
These girls are a running crew that in their own words say ‘we run, we dance, we jump, we pose’! What a great mantra for life. They provide fantastic visual inspiration on turning your running outfit into something truly colourful and exciting and also remind us that running is a journey not a destination.
We have recently been following Susie Chan’s incredible journey through the desert as she ran Marathon Des Sables last week. Susie is an impressive endurance runner who still manages to have a smile on her face even when exhausted. You can read more of her inspiring blogs here and check out her SportStylist expert profile too!
The Runner Beans
The Runner Beans, aka fitness blogger and x4 marathoner, Charlie Watson, shares a lifestyle perspective on running through fantastic photos of her everyday journey on two feet. Her blog is also a wonderful source of inspiration and is packed with tips on all things running and nutrition.
We love Perri’s feed – it provides a combination of a pro-athlete’s world as a 5 time British Champion in the 400 metre hurdle and a girl that likes to have a lot of fun. Her style and photos are packed with energy – a real Insta-mood pick-me-up!
Dorothy Beal, a reknowned running blogger from the US, is a fantastic source of inspiration and technical tips. Dorothy seems like a busy lady who wears many hats as a mother, a x29 marathoner and competitor, a blogger and running creator of #irunthisbody. Her instagram feed is worth a follow for a regular dose of motivation and running wisdom and we recommend her blog too.
