I’m Sam Murphy, a journalist and author based (usually) in East Sussex. I’m also a running coach, and co-founder of Rye Runners with my husband Jeff Pyrah. I started this blog to document The Crazy Thing I embarked on in the summer of 2017. You can read more about it in my first post. The great job I gave up was Section Editor at Runner’s World magazine. I continue to write a monthly column, Murphy’s Lore, for the magazine. You can find out more about my career at my website, should you want to.
