Downward dog and other resolutions

I’m not a big believer in resolutions. Being of the “I’m totally focusing on this one thing. OOOHHH SHINY. I’m totally only focusing on the shiny” school of commitment, the role resolutions play in my life is the part of “something to be ignored”. However, I was in the pool trying to dodge the rudder […]

Is this a meltdown or just melting?

Is this a meltdown or just melting?

So here I am, finally. Almost 3 months after my last post, on a break from work and with time to blog. But with nothing to say. Or possibly too much to say. Probably the latter. We’re about 2.5 weeks out from the Cadbury Marathon in Hobart, and I am feeling absolutely terrified. I am […]

Public Service Announcement: Crossfit

Firstly, don’t make new year’s resolutions. I don’t wanna blog today. I know! There I was, waxing lyrical about blogging everyday like 3 days ago, but I haven’t got anything vaguely fascinating to tell you.

Comrades 2016: The journey starts now

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 […]
