ThatIsBeyond… Kennies boxer briefs, mental health and the models that I want to be mates with!

It’s not every day that you can truly say that you have an affinity with a brand. There can be lots of variables that get in the way. One of the key issues being tackled in recent months is male mental health and I think, that when it comes to fashion, I am greatly affected […]

ThatIsBeyond…Supporting your tackle with HOM

With all of the trials and tribulations of Marathon training I had to take some time to explore the right underwear to protect my tackle on the big day! Style, fabric, anti-chafe and airiness are all factors that needed to be considered, when committing to the pants that I will be wearing for the 26.2 […]

ThatIsBeyond… If the shoe was on the other foot!

I thought it was time to discuss the decline in my exercise regime, and try to explain part of the reason that I have been absent from Twitter and my blog for a short while. It has been a combination of contributing factors, but mostly the tale starts with my Achilles heel… In my case, […]

That is Beyond – National Running Day – Happy Socks Fun!

   So having had a day to recover, I thought it I was time to reflect on the happy morning that was had on National Running Day! It’s not very often that I wake up at 5.45am and describe the experience as fun! But this lovely little Fun Run (totalling 5km of London parks and […]

ThatIsBeyond… Breaking the Gym and other exercise stories.

2015 is the year of the triathlon for me. I don’t know why, but there is something that really appeals about this sporting feat. I think it was probably watching the Brownlee Brothers at the Olympics that really got the idea in my head, but since then I have had the idea that it might […]

ThatIsBeyond…Why it has to be more than just losing weight!

I, like a number of people out there, need to lose some weight. This is not the pressures of society, the magazines or the fact that clothing never fits me (although I am sure that these are huge contributors to many, and to me respectively), it is about me “Getting Into Shape” In the real […]

That is beyond…My marathon training must haves!

That is beyond… My marathon training must haves! Pictured above are some of my marathon training must-haves. As you may already know TIB (aka me!) is running the Stockholm marathon! This will be my first one and so I am working through a schedule to make this even possible. Some of the key factors for […]
