City 2 Casino 2017

It's race recap time again and while I didn't pb as I had wanted to I had a great time. I joined hubby on this run - it was his idea after all, and am so very proud of him and how he went. This is how it went down: - the day was bright, … Continue reading City 2 Casino 2017

Hobart 19/2/17

Sunday woke with clouds and crisp air. Drowsily my feet hit the floor and I stumbled around trying to wake up. At the same time I'm trying not to be so awake, the nerves had started already.

Run the Bridge – 14 Feb

On February 14th I did the 10k 'Run the Bridge' event. This is an event which is held all over … Continue reading Run the Bridge – 14 Feb
