A couple of weeks ago, I, Tomi, got up at 03:30 to travel down to Loughborough with Start Fitness and More Mile. Such a blessing to be able to travel with such a major brand. It was a cold day, but I had goals in mind - sell, learn, enjoy it. And I achieved all 3 goals. This connection I have with Start Fitness and More Mile is so special and therefore is my favourite or second favourite (depending on how I'm feeling) reason that I'm in Newcastle. The fact that I've been blessed with a business/mentorship relationship with the...

Do Something

Last week I was in Newcastle for exams. After those exams had finished I went to Start Fitness - the best running store in the country - to just go and chat to the guys there. I know them they know me, we all connected last year and started to form a good relationship. I speak to the owner, Tony every week, and he gives me advice and suggestions to do with the running shoe world on a regular basis. So this time, I went in briefly (after listening to Eminem's new album, Kamikaze - priorities... - to ask some...
