Running your Mind

I started running to feel better, both physically and emotionally. I still to this day use it as my go to wellbeing fix, to regulate my mood and to keep myself in check. Running is obviously pretty important to me and I rely on it heavily for so much more than just fitness and clarity. […]

Self Doubt

The past week has been a little tough. I’ve not been able to run due to some knee pain, and a side effect of that is self doubt. It’s been creeping in to almost every corner of my world, but especially to my marathon hopes.

Meaningful Moments

Where is time going! How is it February? I know I harp on about time and how it confuses me a fair bit, but seriously..!

28 Things I Learned by 28

As kids we spend time wishing away our years, dreaming of being a teen, then a sweet 16, 18 and finally a real adult at 21. We’re told how time flies and we don’t really believe it as we wait for the next milestone. But as the years fly by and I near 30 I […]

Oh So Social

Social Media is a tricky beast. I follow some amazingly inspirational people out there, from all walks of life; Runners, Foodies, Fashion bloggers, and I largely follow them with pure admiration, respect and joy. Then there are the times when I wish I was faster, fitter, richer, bolder, and oh yeah a better photographer. We […]
