  • I’d not opened the world’s eyes to something that they didn’t know. I’m panicking slightly that I’m coming across like some sort of guru who’s ‘got all the answers’, or ‘knows the secrets of overcoming anxiety’. There are days when my appetite drops and I get a burning panic that I’m going to ‘fall’ back into anxiety again. I’m going to go out slow. I know that I’ll never reach the finish line in this race against anxiety because… that’s my life, and anxiety will always have its own race number

  • Going into the London Marathon this year, I now know two things: I’m not great at converting speed in a 10K into a good marathon time. So when I heard about Pace-Man, an app that could predict your time based on Strava efforts, I wasn’t really that bothered. That ability is pretty similar to the FiveThirtyEight online that gave me a slightly slow marathon time. “What we’re hoping to do [in the Marathon] is validate the system,” adds Doherty. “It may be that it’s too late to use this app for the

  • Huawei has been hot on making waves in the mobile computing world, especially with its Huawei MateBook X Pro. This 15-inch laptop may lack the MateBook X Pro’s barely-there bezels, but has a normally-placed webcam as a result.
