why i do what I do.....

I am now Fashion Director at Glamour magazine but following on from the success of my weekly column in the Sunday Times Style magazine I thought I would bring this page to life every week and also give you the chance to comment. This page is not for me to dictate what you should be wearing but to offer ideas on how to put wearable outfits together. Its not what you wear it's how you wear it!

Nike...Just Do It

For those who don't know I have signed up with Nike to run the half Marathon in San Francisco....for those who don't know I smoke and drink and not sure that I particularly wanted to put these things to one side but I do also want to get fit and thought this would be a great opportunity to challenge this. Another struggle (or excuse) is I am not sure how to fit exercise into my schedule and this will be another obstacle, I would always say yes to a drink after work than even think of doing exercise...will this change?! I am intrigued to find out.
So I said yes and today I find myself at Equinox gym with my assigned personal trainer explaining how I got myself into this mess and maybe I now regret saying yes!
But deep down I am really excited about the next 3 months and hoping this might be the kick start I need to get fit! Nike have kitted me out in all things black and white and wearing my new trainers (this fashion and fitness thing is fun), I have been analysed and assessed and this Thursday I will get my full training schedule.
After this I will get a personal trainer once a week and if this wont work to get me up and out then god knows what will! But aside from all the gimmicks I actually have to get off my ass and run for myself and this is the biggest challenge. So from this weekend here it goes.....Natalie Hartley Runs

I am going to document this experience on the blog and maybe inspire some of you (or not) but hopefully the journey to fitness and San Francisco will be a fun one! I will also be raising money for charity and that's an inspiration in itself.
