While the opportunity came my way thanks to the awesome group, all views and opinions are mine.

I can’t help but be inspired by the awesome athletes competing in Rio, especially the amazing Aussies who are kicking butt over in the Athletics. So I figured I’d been taking my running a little on the easy side and it was time to take it up a notch. It just so happened that I … More Channeling my inner Olympian!
I’ve been training since March, with my eyes on the July Half prize. Now that’s done and dusted I just had this mental tiredness that made me actually not want to run. Combined with a crazy commute for work and then trying to get my training runs in, I was left completely mentally tired. So … More The Mental Game
I can’t believe I’m staring down my goal race, especially since I signed up a couple of days after I back from the January trip – July seemed so far away. Enlisting in the help of Sweat Tracker – they’ve made me a far more confident (and faster) runner – was by far the best … More The goal race approaches!!!
What an amazing weekend! The weather took a dramatic turn towards cold this week, which means it’s prime running weather. With 3 weeks until my first half marathon since January (and back from injury) and 5 weeks until my goal half (hoping for a big PR at that one) I went into this week’s 19k … More Battling the 19k
Seriously, I’ve just had the craziest week – ranging from my computer completely dying (thankfully it was repaired) to falling down in the street outside my office. I mean, who as an adult falls down in a city street?? After smashing my knee on the gutter, and hitting the pavement with my palm, I was … More What a week!
I’m three weeks into my new job, and I’m eight weeks out from the Gold Coast Half Marathon (even less for the Bay to Bay Half); yet I’m incredibly frustrated and exhilarated at the same time. How is this so? Well, I’m still battling getting those mid-week runs in. I did run on Wednesday night … More Frustration and exhilaration
I’m breaking the 5 day silence here, I feel that (amongst other things) my lack of posts are due to the complete change in my life in that I have a new job (YAY!!). Just to recap – late last year my position was made redundant from the job I had for the past 3 … More Running into a new schedule..
Over the course of the couple of years running I’ve had some crazy issues with my feet. From the beginning of shin splints – which I ended up in orthotics, to numbness in the feet – which led me to throw away the orthotics, to then changing my strike and running in zero drop; I now … More The drop issue
I’ve officially been cleared to start running again! Luckily I’m able to look at small milage before getting back into my Sweat Tracker program for the Gold Coast Half/ Bay to Bay Half. It’s only 10 weeks until the first race!! This week I thought I’d push the comfort zone, there’s nothing I like better … More Pushing the comfort zone
