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, […]

Doodles, Boo & OscarMort, too, The Long Jog to Comrades 6 Comments

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 […]

Run Fat B!tch Run!

I bought a book at the weekend.  In fact I bought two.  About running.  Nothing spectacular in that, I know, but it was a first for me.  I have never bought a book about running before.  But there is so much that I don’t know about running, and I can’t rely on Coach Zoey all […]

Confessions of a Fangirl…

The Long Jog to Comrades 4 Comments

Word is finally out that Kate and Zoey over at Operation Move have their sights set on conquering Comrades in 2015.  And as I was already having delirious dreams of flying the 9,500kms to Durban to take part in the epic 90kms run, I’m now part of the 3 woman OpMove team! (Not that it’s […]

The Boganvillia Beach Fiasco

Homelife Crisis 3 Comments

So up here in Boganvillia, we have a beach, which we all know and love as the Foreshore.  Because…. that’s it’s name.  I was going to tell you exactly how long it is, in a very precise and researched kind of way.  All professional and everything.  (And more to the point, I am falling literally off the board in […]

Tyranny of the Treadmill

The Long Jog to Comrades 4 Comments

The other evening I did a treadmill run.  I don’t like the treadmill.  I want to be out there being nosey, because that’s what makes running fun.  But I couldn’t, because of the weather.  Now, I’m a good English girl, so a sprinkle of rain is only going to add to the joy of a […]

Hello world!

Well here it is.  I finally have my dinky little website standing on its own 2 feet and I am sitting here staring at the blank screen waiting to be filled with words.  Words. Written. By. Me. OMG!  That sounds like a cue to go and make a cup of tea. Ha hem. Order! Scary […]
