10 Top Running Tips

your puppy-cat wants you to know. Hello Huminions. I see my huminion has left the computer unattended.  This is good. It is time my bark were heard.  And I don’t mean to be rude, but you seem to be in need of advice, because from what I can see, you make life much more complicated than it needs to […]

Easter Miracles

And I don’t just mean the miracle where I update my blog; no, there’s more!! There’s the fact that I ran 35km today.  On my own.  And I didn’t even fall over.  (Last week I ran the same route with friends, and luckily Jacqui came equipped with a backpack the size and weight it looked like she […]

Why is my running blog all about wine and animals?

Why is my running blog all about wine and animals?

I wonder if you can help me?  I have come to a realisation that my running blog features much animal madness and wine yet little running.  So, today, because I haven’t been running for a whole week, and therefore have no running anecdotes to offer, it seems I have a burning desire to turn my attention to […]

Beware Paypal – the evil lovechild of Wine and the Devil

There is a hidden lurking danger out there.  You need to be aware.  Paypal is a threat and I am writing this to protect you. I don’t want you to suffer in the same way as I have. Last weekend, I had dinner with a glass of wine (OK, possibly two or three)* and it transpires, […]

Yesterday I had a running revelation.  This confirmed solo runner went running with friends.  And it was the bomb. I’ve always been too worried to run with other people.  I won’t be fast enough. I might not be fit enough.  I’ll be too slow.  I won’t be able to go the distance.  I won’t be […]

New Year’s Promise – or Pay!

So it’s New Year’s Eve and I’m kind of sad to see the back of 2014.  2014 has been a blast. It was the year I bought a paddle board and learnt to use it. Me!  Out on the water in board shorts and a rash vest.  I ran the Clare Valley half marathon, then […]

Jelly-Belly, or the need to lose weight

I’ve been doing some reading whilst I was away.  (Did you even notice that I was gone)?  A lot of it about running.  Funny, that, hey?  Me, reading about running.  Well, actually, it was a first!  Until recently, I’d never read anything about running or by a runner.  Not in book form, anyway.  (Runnersworld doesn’t count […]

Mark Latham and the West Side Story

I’m really confused.  That’s nothing new, but hear me out.  I’m a bit of a new kid on the block and not a massive follower of things political, so I’d never heard of Mark Latham before yesterday.  But I was doing a bit of quiet reading of Amy’s blog over at Handbag Mafia (which I […]

Emergency Kittens

I have decided I want a kitten.  A few weeks ago, I decided I wanted a blog.  Now I have a blog.  When I decide I want something, it usually happens.  I am impetuous that way. So now I am on a mission to own a kitten, and the poor hubstacle has had to endure a […]
