Why Now? 

I’ll start on Monday, or the 1st of the month! Next week I’ll make a plan, next month I’ll kick it off, just after this project, or date, or time, or kid! Sound familiar? It does for me! There is always a better time than right now, right? Advertisements

The Slump

So I ran a marathon, it went pretty well, I loved the experience, and I loved the achievement. It was probably the proudest day of my life. After spending months training and obsessing, I crossed the line on a massive high and then slumped down with a beer and a smile that I was sure […]

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. […]

Why Mind?

I spent Saturday at a marathon training day put on by mind. It was a great day and opportunity to speak with like minded people, work on our techniques/training prep and kick off our fundraising.

November Project

I love a new month that starts at the beginning of a week (well almost)! It feels like it allows a natural break in time. It breaks up the fact that days, months and years tend to bleed together into some kind of blur, but seriously how is it November. It’s really important, as time […]
