HELLO and welcome to Sweet Tooth Runner!
My name is Emma, and I started this blog at the end of 2010 to talk about the loves of my life: running and food!
Running is my passion, and I am completely obsessed and in love with it. In less than two years, I went from someone who literally couldn’t run for two minutes to someone who competes in cross country and on the track at regional and national level. I went from someone who hated any form of physical activity to someone who trains pretty much every day, and loves every second of it.
You can read more about how I began running here.
I was born and still live in London, England. I love this city and this country, and I’m proud to call it home!
However I am not a fan of the great British weather…but not even a mini blizzard will stop me from getting in a good track session!
I am a classical musician. I fund my expensive peanut butter/coffee/energy bar addiction by doing quartet jobs.
The viola is my main instrument, but I also play the piano and sing. I was going to go on to study at music college until I changed my mind at the end of 2011 after deciding that a career as a musician wasn’t for me. I still love music though, and usually spent ~20 hours a week doing it!
In September 2011, I joined a running club and never looked back. Being part of a team, training with fellow crazy runners in all weathers, and racing most weekends has brought me so much joy!
I am a foodie. I love food, cooking, baking, and spend more time than I probably should drooling over everything on Foodgawker. I’m also a vegan, and I have the world’s craziest sweet tooth. Cupcakes are my kryptonite.
I’m a little obsessed with my dog. His name is Buddy and he is a Miniature Schnauzer. Expect to see this furry face on the blog a lot!
In the rare moments that I’m not running/eating/music-ing/studying/sleeping, I can usually be found watching reruns of Friends, sneakily reading running magazines off the shelves, or shopping whilst wearing a monkey onesie.
Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you enjoy my blog!!
