What can I say? This was one of my best runs. After Ross and being under prepared I got myself sorted and in two weeks turned it around. While 5km is not long it is a fast run, and I wanted to feel confident on the flat loop and be able to push myself. I … Continue reading Crank-e 5k: 16/9/18
What makes a race your favourite? The crowd support? Your perfect weather conditions? Having a good mindset the whole way through? Getting a PB? Each race has its own story which almost makes them all memorable - for different reasons. Sometimes it can be hard to make a choice and if i tried to do … Continue reading Favourite run vs favourite medal
Over the last 3 years I've discovered a lot about myself, what a runner looks like and what a runner actually is. In a nut shell, a runner is someone who runs. Fast or slow, smooth, elegant or like a baby giraffe. Large or small, it doesn't matter. So long as they are moving forward … Continue reading What does a runner look like..?
Its been 8 weeks and I've discovered I need to change where I'm going with lchf. It might seem a bit 'oh I love this, its fantastic' one minute and the next 'ugh, feel like shit, it's not working', I see that. I am in both of those camps right now.

And why do you do it? I got thinking about this at work today after a customer came in - Not wearing her active wear like she usually does - and we commented about the 3 sets of clothes we have. Work wear, gym wear and dressing up. My colleague asked what gym she uses … Continue reading What’s your exercise?
The usual pre race nerves set in a few days before hand. The weather, my bib, clothes, food and hydration, getting there on time. My training had gone well and I was feeling good, ready to start and finish the race - enjoying it all the way. We arrived at the start with plenty of … Continue reading Run the Bridge, Feb 18
I wanted to get a run in, but have some fun at the same time so when the opportunity presented itself on Monday I took it. I’m sure there will lots more opportunities where this mini trail run is concerned. I’ve driven past it many times, seen the sign, heard about it and yet have … Continue reading Alum Cliffs Track 7k
