It’s the London Marathon this coming weekend. Hands up how many of you know someone who is running it? Have you run it yourself?

This week, I’ve pulled together our bloggers’ suggestions of what might be useful as good fuel meals when you are coming up to a physical sporting event. Whether that’s a marathon, a 5km run, a charity football match or even a swim challenge, you need to make sure your body is fuelled for the big event.

So over to our foodies to see what they suggest for good fuelling for your big event.

Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy’s Clare says her super fuel idea is this Banana, Date and Walnut Loaf. She also says if you aren’t training for a marathon, it is perfect when you’ve got your feet up, with a cup of tea. Sounds good to me!

What’s your go to recipe for a protein or energy hit either before or after training for a sporting event? I’m a big fan of a wholemeal grilled chicken salad sandwich. Great for the carbs and the protein! It’s also pretty quick and simple to make.

So You Know...

As you've likely heard and seen, there's an increasing focus on the authenticity of follower growth and engagement on social platforms across the Influencer Marketing community. The platforms themselves have taken measures to deter inauthentic activity and brands now more closely scrutinise the audiences of the influencers with whom they are partnering.

The Flea Network has implemented a system that will detect abnormal spikes in following and engagement, and flag these properties. Of course, such spikes can often be attributed to viral posts or high-profile brands that bring greater exposure to some content.

If one of your social accounts is flagged by our system without an obvious reason, we may reach out to you for assistance in understanding it. If we find any influencer has artificially inflated their audience size or engagement using paid acquisition or automated, third-party tools, we will remove them permanently from our influencer community.

Feel free to reach out to us at with any questions or comments.

Thank you!
