Jenni Falconer

The television and radio presenter talks running marathons, fitting training around family, and her new podcast

Jenni Falconer is a regular face on the start line of the London Marathon, and is one of those runners who looks like she relishes every single mile.

But, while she was always sporty at school, her enthusiasm for running hasn’t been a constant. “When I went off to university in Leeds, I also started working in television and was commuting back and forth to Glasgow. With that and all the partying, I had very little time to exercise and put on quite a bit of weight. As only mums can, my mum took me aside one day and told me I’d put on too much – I’m size 8-10 and had gone up to a 16 – and I was actually really appreciative of her honesty.”

About Women’s Running

In the May issue of Women’s Running, we are fast and FIERCE. We uncover 15 ways that running can make you more powerful, physically and mentally, and we’ve put them to the test. We also investigate the controversial topic of disordered eating and running: what are the warning signs to look out for in ourselves and others, and how we can support people who show symptoms of this harrowing and broad reaching mental illness that is unhappily prevalent in our community. We speak to journalist and author Bella Mackie on how she used running to manage the symptoms of her anxiety - so well, in fact, that she wrote a book about it. And we review tons of kit, including trail backpacks for days off the beaten track, some stunning neutral shoes, and fab all-weather jackets. Plus, we’ve got a training guide for a five-mile race, the ultimate marathon nutrition guide, and a lustworthy compo from Ultra - win three pairs of shoes worth £360!
