Marathon in a Day
Posted on August 2, 2017 Leave a Comment
When I first sent that message to my dear friend asking her if she thought I could run a marathon and she came back saying 100% yes, I didn’t believe her. I went through 20 weeks of training with highs and lows and injuries. I found myself on that start line still not believing her. […]

I started 2016 unsure if I could complete a marathon, unsure of my future, where I was going and in some ways unsure of myself. I’m ending it knowing the answer to at least one of those questions and realising that it’s ok to not know the answer to the others.

It’s always easy to smash out a positive blog post after having a truly great day, but where I can I try and spread those vibes far and wide, as I know how fleeting they can be especially for me! Yesterday I had a truly difficult day, the details of which are neither relevant nor […]

I’ve been submerged for what feels like far too long. I think in some sense that’s because I felt I had to understand it, stay put and feel through it! As if without doing this I might not ever know how not to be. I sat in tears last week as a world voted for […]

I pride myself on being totally honest in this sphere and I’m thankful that I have a place where I can write out what I’m going through both physically and emotionally, the highs and lows of that, and how as a now 29 year old, pretty average British lass I’m still figuring it all out! […]
What if I Can’t?

My buddy messaged me yesterday to say she just couldn’t stop doubting herself, and whilst I reeled off (with ease) the 1 million reasons why she really should never doubt herself, the things I see in her every day that make her an incredible human! I couldn’t help but feel like a total hypocrite because […]

Words are so incredibly powerful, I love them which is why my favourite pastimes are to write, read, or listen. But the balance of the universe means that if they’re not helping us they’re hurting us. Do you want to know how many hurtful things I’ve said to myself today?

I’ve been struggling with what to write over the past week as life everywhere seems super crazy; locally, nationally, internationally. The scale of chaos and hurt being felt by so many is unreal to anything I have ever witnessed. I couldn’t begin to imagine what the solution is, or how we go about turning hate into […]

I have this dream that one day I’ll live in a cabin in the woods with a wraparound porch, where I’d sit sipping whisky and smoking a cigar in my dressing gown. This is my desire to actually turn into an all American granddad, an odd one I admit for a 20-something British lass. I’ve […]
When life gives you lemons

This past week has been a little crazy. It’s tested my patience, my belief system, my relationships, my career, my view of the world and worst of all my character.
