]]> 2014-11-26T15:42:00+00:00 2014-11-26T15:46:49+00:00 Race Time Lily Rice The last two months has been an incredible learning curve for me, and I have finally begun to understand how to balance different goals.
For the first time in my life I am pursuing my three greatest passions all at the same time.

I am in full time training for Jasmin Vardimons young company JV2, with trail running and surfing events squeezed in at the weekends and during the Christmas holiday break.
I believed for a very long time that there was no limit, and in many ways, it still remains a foundation in my motivation.

But it is clear that doing TOO much can hinder your performance in everything you do, and in a way, your limit for achievement begins to drop.
The last few races have been a huge eye opener to what the human body is capable of.

Helped along by reading ‘Born to Run’ a both educational and inspirational book written by Christopher McDougal, I decided to venture further than the 42 mile race I had dragged myself through in Cornwall.

I first ramped up a gear and took a slightly doubtful dive into the self-navigated 58mile race across the sparse Snowdonia mountain range.

I had entered without really thinking about it, and it was only when Benn Berkeley, a good friend and experienced expeditioner, helped me track and visualise the route along an OS map that I gulped with apprehension. He looked at me and said ‘wow, that’s long way’ … and that was coming from a man who has endured one of the toughest endurance ice races across Siberia!

None the less, I had entered, and I am not one for backing out, so I set off on an adventure with the thought that if the worst came to the worst, I could always pull out at a checkpoint.

The small pool of runners set off as the sun rose, and I was in my normal chirpy mood, excited to explore a great route across mountain range I hadn’t seen before.

I latched onto the back of two Australian runners in desperation of not getting lost, but they shot off after the first 6 miles.

I knew there was a long race ahead so I stuck to my own pace and made more of a focus to reach the end in one piece.

With over 10,000 ft. of elevation, I felt at times I would never stop climbing, but luckily the surrounding view was enough to distract from the pain.

I wearily stopped to fill my water pouch from the fresh river by the slate quarry, then continued, paying close attention to the terrain.

By the fourth checkpoint, I had caught up with a lovely chap called Tom. His smile was enough to cheer me up from a severe state of self-pity and I decided I would try and stay close too him for as long as possible.

He munched on some jellybeans and bound off down the trail, so I plodded after him, still shovelling nuts into one side of my mouth whilst trying to breathe out the other.

He welcomed my company and became a hugely motivating leader. He had some knowledge of the area so whilst he chatted away, I replied very abruptly, just trying to concentrate on keeping up.

All in all we ran together for a good 6 hours and I feel that without his chirpy spirit I may have crumbled and withered far sooner!

As we reached the last checkpoint, I was so desperate to finish but my legs were screaming at me, so I told Tom to head off without me and assured that I would see him at the finish line.

He spun round and waved me a good luck smile before disappearing into a never-ending horizon.

For the last few miles I had my map clutched in my fingertips, tracking every slight advance towards the end.

As I crawled out of the forest and reached the road, I could smell both civilisation and the finish line.

An old man stood with a walkie-talkie and buzzed back to HQ that he had seen the first woman. I had no idea I was running in the lead! My mind had been so focussed on my map, looking where my feet were going and not losing sanity, I almost forgot I was even in a race.

I was hit with a wave of last wind energy and embodied the bounding energy I had envied Tom having hours beforehand.

I could hear the band playing and I could see the lights of the finish.

As I broke through the tape I was greeted but the few male runners that had come through already, a teary eyed mum, and a very happy race director armed with a bowl of hot pasta.

was in disbelief at my finishing time and position.

Being the youngest runner by about 6 years I was overwhelmed with words of congratulations from spectators and other runners.

]]> 2014-08-24T12:11:00+01:00 2014-08-24T12:11:35+01:00 Lexie on Tour Lily Rice Teacher, hockey player and adventurer extraordinaire, Lexie girl Clarissa is currently half way across the world (check her awesome holiday pics below) but we managed to ask a few questions and find out what being a Lexie girl is all about…

Tell me us how you got into your line of work?

“I always had an interest in geography and the environment so decided to study it further. Teaching was always something that stuck out to me and I decided to do a course on that and here I am, loving my job and being able to share my passion with others”

What is the strangest sport you have ever tried?

Not sure really, I love doing long jump and hockey but I’ve recently found a passion for adventure courses and tackling the mud so I guess that’s a bit strange?

If you were in the Olympics, what sport would you want to compete in?

“Long jump or hockey I think. Leaning slightly towards hockey as it’s a team sport and I love being in those sort of environments.”

When you were younger, what did you want to be when you grew up?

“An athlete really but I also loved the idea of being a teacher. Stuck with the second one and here I am!”

And finally Clarissa what does your future hold?

“I’m really enjoying my current job so I would ideally want to keep progressing in this line of work. Also keep active and try out even more sports and challenges.”

If you're keen to find out more about Clarissa's travels and challenge check her website:

]]> 2014-08-14T12:41:00+01:00 2014-08-14T12:45:29+01:00 All Hail Hayley! Lily Rice There isn’t much our Hayley can’t do. From massaging Nick Gimshaw live on radio one to training with celebs in gymnastics for the upcoming BBC tumble, Hayley is a master of all things sport!

Our resident flexi, we spent some time asking Hayley the really important stuff , discovering her weird obsession with her phone and a strong love of Will Smith...

Tell me how you got into your line of work?

“It’s quite a long story but was always into playing sport and I originally wanted to be a PE teacher or Physio. Then I started dancing at school and after doing a solo in a show my teachers said I should apply for Dance College. So I studied dance for three years which I loved but when I finished I felt I needed something else to back me financially. I always had sports massages and I was always interested in that area so I decided to train so I was fully qualified. Recently I started teaching pilates too. Sports modelling began when I was at college and developed from there really. I got signed by a sports agency and since then I have been able to work with many companies.”

What is the strangest sport you have ever tried?

“Strangest sport.. I know I have done tag rugby but that’s not very weird. I have also been involved with aerial acrobatics which was good fun.”

If you were an animal, what would you be?

“Everyone says that I would be a flamingo because I am always standing on one leg and look quite bird like! I would want to be a killer whale though as I just love them!”

If you could meet anyone dead or alive, who would it be?

“Will smith probably as he has great views in life and an amazing story of how he got to where he is”

What’s your annoying habit?

“I go on my phone way too much! I'll check it unnecessarily and just waste so much time on it. I'll refresh my facebook feed and then 5 minutes later, I'll do it again. I should do something more productive like read a book or something.”

If you were in the Olympics, what sport would you want to compete in?

“I would want to do 100m sprint as it’s the biggest and most hyped up event.”

Pick two celebrities to be your parents... Go!

“Will Smith and Meryl Streep, I'm a big fan of both”

What’s something you’re bad at but wished you were good at?

“Singing. I really really can’t sing! My friends keep telling me I should go into acting which is random as I don’t think I can act and singing is definitely not a strong point.”

When you were younger, what did you want to be when you grew up?

“Vet was always my first dream and then I wanted to be a PE teacher when I found my love for sport.”

What does your future hold?

“I want to do lots more dancing and modelling jobs. Keep my client base for my sports massages but it would be great to work from home. I would love to buy a nice home and convert it to having a treatment room and studio where I can teach classes.”

]]> 2014-08-02T12:42:00+01:00 2014-08-02T12:42:28+01:00 Workout Chat - Georgia Thursting - Part Two Lily Rice We grabbed our girl, Georgia for a chinwag and had some burning questions left to be answered so out in the sunshine we found out...



If you were an animal, what would you be?

I’m always comparing people to animals! I’d say an Ant for their characteristics like being small but strong and very determined (have you seen what one Ant can carry?! It’s mental).


If you could meet anyone dead or alive, who would it be?

Amy Winehouse no doubt. 


What’s your annoying habit?

Being a perfectionist I think. If a task pops up, small or important I can’t calm down until it’s done and I always strive to do as best I can, which sometimes means pushing other people a bit too far. I need to learn to prioritise a bit better.


If you were in the Olympics, what sport would you want to compete in?

I’d be in the 100m sprint. I used to run for my school, and I was ALWAYS second fastest. I love the thrill and fast pace of the 100m.


Pick two celebrities to be your parents...Go!

Probably Patti Smith and Ray Davies. They are both incredible people, and seem very down to earth. I reckon we’d have a pretty liberal and fun household. 


What’s something you’re bad at but wished you were good at?

I wish I could draw sometimes. I love looking at visual stimuli to inspire my music, and I have images in my head I’d love to get onto paper, but I’m so useless I can’t even doodle properly!


When you were younger, where did you fancy living when you grew up?

Somewhere imaginary. I loved the idea of fairies and mystical lands. Somewhere where everything is very dreamy and neutral in colour, where you can ride a horse anywhere you go and nothing is bad or evil but everything is beautiful. Narnia was somewhere I absolutely loved the sound of.


What song title best describes you?

I’d say ‘Dancing Barefoot’ by Patti Smith. I’m not saying i’m a hippy or anything, but this title says to me something about not caring what people think. I’ve always been a bit nutty, and never worried about doing what I want to do if someone else doesn’t like it or judges me. I think that’s how everyone should live … in the moment, and free or judgement! 


What does your future hold?

I like to think it will hold a successful music career… by successful I don’t mean a career like Rihanna's, but more along the lines of those like Laura Marling. A career that lasts, and with each record I want to grow as an artist and performer. I want a core fan base that loves not only my voice but the music I write too!

XX]]> 2014-07-31T15:01:00+01:00 2014-07-31T15:03:46+01:00 Workout Chat - Georgia Thursting Lily Rice Free spirited songbird Georgia Thursting swung by town for the day, so we grabbed her for a quick workout session and caught up on the world of EPs, NYC and being a vet...


What have you been up to recently?

I’ve been busy recoding my EP and going on holidays! Recording takes a lot longer than you ever anticipate but it’s going well. I’m about 70% done, mainly vocals to go. I’ve been having lots of sessions with my producer and engineer Ben, discussing what works best for each song and messing around with different arrangements - there’s rumors of a triangle solo on the horizon for one of the tunes ;)


As it's our birthday this weekend, if you could have anything for yours what would it be?

For my birthday? Well I just had mine in June and I got what i wanted, a trip to NYC... It was amazing! I’m too lucky, I even got to see the Queen of Soul Aretha in concert. On the other hand, for Lexie’s birthday I would buy you a massive concert in a park in London somewhere with all the kick ass women in music performing on the bill. There’d be a dance stage too, and sports day games hahaha, maybe in a few years?


When you were younger, what did you want to be when you grew up?

There was brief phase of me wanting to be a vet when I was really little, but I soon realised I wouldn’t be able to handle the hands on side like surgery. I think I thought being a vet was about running around all day with cute animals haha. Since watching Titanic and falling in love with the theme tune at the age of 6, it’s all been about singing and music!



What does your future hold?

I like to think it will hold a successful music career… by successful I don’t mean a career like Rihanna's, but more along the lines of those like Laura Marling. A career that lasts, and with each record I want to grow as an artist and performer. I want a core fan base that loves not only my voice but the music I write too!

Lily Rice While we've been kicking back and enjoying the sunshine, super girl Sarah has been battling it out at the English Nationals this weekend! Unfortunately, not only did she manage to catch some waves but also the chicken pox! Sending big love, a get well soon and a big congrats for being such a trouper! True Lexie Girl Grit!

]]> 2014-04-16T14:23:35+01:00 2014-04-16T14:23:41+01:00 Sarah Lily Rice Aged just 21, Lexie Girl Sarah has managed to pack more in to her multi tasking, mile a minute days than many twice her age.

Born in London but with her heart in Cornwall (“It’s such a beautiful place to live and there is so much to do here”), Sarah combines a love of long costal runs, gym based workouts and surf instructing with an inability to sit still for longer than a minute and dancing until she drops.

Gaining her dream place the Northern School of Contemporary Dance aged 18, Sarah heard the sea’s siren call and couldn’t resist jumping in the opposite direction, heading off around the world to work as a surf instructor.

Having explored Africa, Indonesia, Central America and Europe and with a hunger for further travel, Sarah has no plans to stop,  “my list of places to go is ever growing!” but for now at least, she has her feet planted in the UK,

“I’ve challenged myself this year to compete on every stop on the UK Pro Surf Tour and the goal is to finish ranked in the top 10, but I’m also currently auditioning for dance companies with the dream of gaining a position as an apprentice dancer!”

Currently pushing herself to achieve in her degree of Surf Science, Sarah is the first to admit that she finds staying still hard,

“Me and sitting still don’t really ever meet in the same sentence and I pretty much pounce on any opportunity …”

With her outrageous laugh, extraordinary hair and sun beam personality we find it hard to believe that anyone can pin this girl down, but in a moment of quite reflection Sarah confides that downtime does exist,

“On the rare occasion, I just like to chill with friends and play the guitar at home. My favorite time of day is sunrise so I always love to be up to watch it”

Hayley, STOTT Pilates instructor, massage therapist, health model, carer for children with special needs and now a Lexie girl...

Phew we feel tired just reading that list.

Luckily Hayley is naturally energetic “I used to play national league basketball when I was a teenager and I love netball, gymnastics, athletics and dance!”


When she’s not being super active Hayley loves to take it easy, nipping out for food (‘I love Thai and Vietnamese’) or cooking at home where she creates new healthy recipes (‘my favorite at the moment is my Banana Protein Pancakes, perfect for breakfast’).
Hayley’s not just passionate about health though; she’s an avid lover of fashion and shopping, she’s even performed at London fashion week,
 “I am always in leggings and love how stylish Lexie's look. And I love all the power mesh details”

At just 24, with a degree in dance performance and having already performed at Wembley Stadium we predict big things for Ms Deane and we’re so excited for her to join our team!

]]> 2014-03-19T12:26:36+00:00 2014-03-21T15:01:21+00:00 Clarissa Lily Rice Clarissa describes herself as 'just an ordinary 20-something year old'. 
We think she is anything but!

Having joined her first athletic club aged 5 with a passion for running, Clarissa reached national level for athletics, netball and hockey, something she puts down to the support of her parents who became her 'physio, drivers, No.1 fans, PAs & chefs!'. Now with a day job as a geography and sport teacher (she promises us she doesn't wear tweed), Clarissa is still as excited about sport,

"I like to have a go at everything (even if I'm rubbish). In particular, over the last few years, I've grown to really enjoy off-road events and
 challenges in inspiring environments; the bigger the landscape, the better!'

It was this love of a challenge and 'have a go' attitude that last year inspired Clarissa to #takeonachallenge,

"In the build up to the Olympics I decided that I wanted to try something new. My father had passed away and I wanted to do something fitting in memory of him. I decided that I would take on a new and different challenge every month over the course of the year.
I used each challenge to raise money for charity in honour of my father who inspired and made me the sports fanatic I am. That was where 'My Year of Ultimate Challenges' was born."

Not only was Clarissa taking on a new challenge every month and dedicating herself to encouraging girls and women to adopt a healthy active lifestyle (through #takeonachallenge) but also completing her teacher training, playing in the England Hockey Premiership League and involved in the National Developement Squad. Phew!

This year, instead of taking some time off, Clarissa has decided to take on the UK's first official Obstacle Racing League, culminating in the world's largest obstacle race, The Rat Race Dirty Weekend, in May (200 obstacles, 20 miles).

"I just love running, jumping, dodging, crawling, diving about, getting muddy, pushing myself further than I ever have.
The key point for me was that I had found a way of pushing myself and fulfilling an aim of encouraging other young girls and women to push themselves too; reaping the benefits of being fitter and healthier in a fun way."

And we thought what better kit to do it in than Lexie!

Clarissa will be blogging and tweeting about her events (in her custom Lexie tee) and encouraging you to have a go at:

And Clarissa's favourite quote?

"Life begins at the end of your comfort zone"

Of course.
]]> 2014-03-19T12:08:44+00:00 2014-03-23T13:44:53+00:00 Jane Lily Rice
She describes herself as a 'writer, warrior, fitness focused female', belives that 'Freedom lies in being bold' and has an electic music collection that ranges from So Solid Crew to her Dad's folk band Redmayne.

We're pretty sure Jane isn't your average Personal Trainer.

Frequently found in Borough Market 'buying ALL the kale and avocados' or in her local green space 'for fresh air, exercising, peace & a bit of twitching (I'm a closet bird watcher)', Jane's passion lies in 'powerful, athletic, functional stuff!' which she loves to match with yoga to 'balance my ying-yang output'.

"I love sprinting, crawling, jumping, boxing, running up stairs & escalators, climbing, chin ups on the tube, the occasional single leg squat while awaiting the bus. I'm a big fan of bodyweight training, you can do it anywhere and you can always progress!"

Not one to be shy, naturally her favourite piece of kit is our bold Anita Leggings, "being blonde of barnet these are a fitting choice! I love the stand out print"

And the next big chanllenge for this seriously fearless lady?

"Read more. Travel more. Get stronger! Handstand practice, working on my crow pose, more yoga, chin ups, muscle up & sprinting."

]]> 2014-03-19T11:37:52+00:00 2014-03-21T15:02:15+00:00 Georgia Lily Rice She had The Voice judges on tenterhooks when she performed her blind audition for the hit TV show last year. Progressively making her mark on the gig and festival scene, we managed to nab singer-songwriter Georgia Thursting just before she hits the big time. 



 Along with tales of sex and seduction, Georgia’s rich soulful voice and jazz influences sound well beyond her twenty years. It something that comes naturally. 

“I get this feeling when I’m inspired, I just have to write. I never sit down to try force it. When I’m not in the mood it doesn’t happen - I get frustrated with myself.”

Performing since the age of 12 and taking the stage at Ronnie Scotts and Live at Leeds Festival, Georgia is humble but not afraid to dream and aim high. Perhaps it’s something to do with her fitness fanatic and personal trainer dad who she’s been hitting the boxing studio with?

“I’ve only started but I enjoy it a lot more than the gym. We box, listen to mixes from DJs I’ve seen, and incorporate circuits into our workouts. Who knew skipping could be so tiring!”

Aside from boxing and graduating from Leeds College of Music, the next stop on-route to stardom is finishing and releasing her EP. 

“There is so much to think about and do in preparation. My band, producer and I have put so much time and effort into sounding as tight as we can and creating something exciting that I can’t wait to get the ball rolling and get people listening.”

With her rockabilly style, Georgia chooses the Veronica Short as her favorite piece of the Icon collection. 

“I used to look at sports clothing and think it looked ridiculous a lot of the time but these shorts, and the whole Lexie range is so fashionable and practical. The shorts design is great and I love the silver panel detail".

An hour long, full contact, female game.

Introducing Lexie's first sponsored team of inspirational women the Kernow Rollers.

So when we were approached by Donna of the Kernow Rollers last year to sponsor her kick ass team of female players we said no.


Thing was we didn’t actually have any kit yet.  So as soon as we got some in we sent a heap down to Donna and her girls to test out. 
The Kernow Rollers are a flat track roller derby team, playing the fast-paced, full-contact, high adrenaline sport in Cornwall.

Founded in 2011 as an inclusive and empowering non-profit sporting organization, the league trains several times a week on & off skates and they welcome anyone regardless of their shape, size or ability.

These girls are as tough as they come and we love their inclusive mindset, opening up sport to all women, we are proud to provide their kit and can't wait to see their team grow and conquer!
