Hi, my name is Rachel and I have combined my passion for running and design by creating quirky products to assist the running community. I started by creating 12 relatable running characters which led me to design my calendar. I then started working on my Training Journal. I wanted the Training Journal to be completely different to anything I had seen on the market, so the first decision was to design it using 100% full colour. I also wanted it to be bright, fun and cheery, just like my Calendar.
Whilst designing the journal it occurred to me that I needed to have some stickers to use throughout and so I made two custom stickers. The first one is paying homage to my favourite running club Run Mummy Run and the second one I designed a multicoloured trainer with the logo on which says “Love to Run” I mean, who doesn't love stickers?! I must keep them away from my 4 year old Son as I know he does !!
As so many of us struggle with either injury, sickness, or loss of motivation, I wanted my first multi-functional headwear to reflect how I was feeling during my own marathon training whilst struggling with injury, and that's how “I Love Running, I Hate Running” came to be.
I hope you love using my products as much as I have loved designing them.
