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?

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 […]

Brighton Marathon

I’ve been sitting down trying to figure out how to write this, how do I fit the emotions in to a blog post, how can I possibly do it justice. It seems above and beyond my capabilities at the moment. Sunday 17th April seems too big to put into words even two days on.

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. […]

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..! In moments it’s in utter abundance and then without warning completely fleeting. Yet the amount of time never changes, all that changes is how we experience and interact with it. […]

Beating the Winter Blues

This is a seriously hectic time of year; it doesn’t really matter which way I try to slice the time, someone or something ends up missing out. It’s more than that though I end up feeling like I don’t give any of the things I need to do enough time. I sit here writing this […]

The Gift 

Once upon a time someone said to me if you’re trying to be a nice person, then you’re not a nice person. Being nice means you don’t have to try. I get the idea but I really didn’t and still don’t agree. This comment actually really hurt my feelings at the time. I like to […]
