Sam Murphy 自我简介：
Sam Murphy is a trained and highly experienced journalist. After a decade working on national magazines (including 2 years as features editor on Woman & Home magazine) she went freelance and specialises in writing on fitness and health. She is widely viewed as an expert in her field, with a first class honours degree in sport & exercise science and 12 years of practical experience as a coach and personal trainer. She is the author of three books on running – including Real Women Run (2012) the replacement book updating and expanding upon the bestselling women-specific Run for Life (translated into 10 languages), Running Well and Marathon & Half Marathon: From Start to Finish. She writes regularly for many national newspapers and magazines, including The Guardian and Financial Times, and has a monthly column in Runner’s World called Murphy's Lore.
Sam continues to work as a running coach and enjoys helping runners of all levels achieve their goals – be it a first 5km or a marathon PB and offers one-to-one coaching, tailor-made programmes and day workshops in London, Kent and Sussex. She also runs Rye Runners, a running club in Rye, East Sussex. Alongside her writing and coaching careers, Sam has appeared on BBC Breakfast, BBC Radio 4 (on both the Today programme and Woman's Hour) and Radio London talking about topical fitness issues – she has also presented seminars at The Science Museum, The Running Show and at the London Marathon's 'Meet the Experts' Weekend.

I am a sport and fitness journalist, author and running coach with a lifelong passion for being active, and for inspiring others to be so. Through my articles, books and coaching services, my aim is to help everyone discover their inner athlete! I have written three books on running - the bestselling women-specific Run for Life (now translated into 10 languages), Running Well - aimed at those already running - and Marathon & Half Marathon: From Start to Finish. I've also written a beginner-friendly guide to getting into Triathlon, and books on general fitness with a female slant including The Real Woman's Personal Trainer and Weights for Weight Loss. I also worked with the British Army to produce the Official British Army Fitness Guide for Guardian Books. I write regularly on running and fitness for many national newspapers and magazines, including The Guardian and Financial Times, and have a monthly column in Runner's World magazine.
Alongside my writing and coaching careers, I have appeared on BBC Breakfast, BBC Radio 4 and Radio London talking about topical fitness issues - I have also presented seminars at The Running Show and at the London Marathon's 'Meet the Experts' Weekend.
It's not all talk, though! To date, I have completed 15 marathons (best time 3 hours 22 minutes) and raced distances ranging from 3km on the track to the Himalayan 100 Mile Race and dozens of triathlons.
