...in the space of a few weeks Life as we know has changed irrevociably. Coronavirus (covid 19) has taken the world by storm, literally. Countries are shut down, our borders here in Australia, and Tasmania, have closed (and being an island continent makes it somewhat easier to control) and projects, plans,, races, wedding and funerals, … Continue reading What a change..
rainforest trail to cave entrance part of the abandoned rail tracks Saturday just past the plans for our respective days went somewhat pear shaped and my Parkrun 5k turned into an awesome trail run. Hubby had a more stressful change yet still managed to get a motorbike ride in. So what actually happened? It started … Continue reading Inadvertent Trail Run
...Months and before you know it, the year has ended, your goals have changed, and your mind set is in a whole new place. I had big plans for this year.

You had a plan or expectation in mind which … Continue reading There’s no such thing as a bad run…
In the two years I've been running 'seriously' - as in training and running events, not just running for the love of it - I've had one hell of a fun time. There have been amazing highs and heart breaking lows. I've had fantastic races and great times. I’ve had bad runs, horridly slow runs … Continue reading My Journey – the first 2 years…
Yep, it's that time of the year again. Point to Pinnacle is coming up in just over a week (not 4 days like I thought) and I'm starting to get those nervous feels.
