We’re trying to eat healthily in this house… well the adult contingent is, at least. You know, start the new year right and all. I’m trying to eat clean and follow a low carb, sugar free diet, as close to the letter as possible! I absolutely have to get serious about eating well because my… Read More Foodie Fabulousness: Banting Granola
Tomorrow I go back to work – my official start to 2017! We’ve had a lovely few weeks as a break, and now it’s time to face the real world again. That means it’s also time to consider what I want out of the year ahead! Sharon over at http://www.theblessedbarreness.com posted her word for the… Read More Bringing 2017 “into Focus”
I’ve mentioned the foot/ankle/leg thing a few times. If you’re a regular reader (and yay for you!) you’ll know that it’s been the reason for my extended absence from my running club for a few months now. I started off with a self diagnosis with the help of Dr Google. It doesn’t take brain (or… Read More The Foot Chronicles… or my (chronic) left foot
Hey everybody! It has been about two months since I last confessed posted. Two months of exam stress! If I ever decide to try do four modules in a semester again, please feel free to smack me upside my head! It was terrible. Loads of stress, very hard to focus and I am pretty sure I… Read More The Injury Edition
If you’re hoping for a super motivating post about achieving the impossible… I suggest you turn back now! This isn’t that sort of post!

My shoulders were a little achy from holding out water sachets for all the runners! Our Run/Walk for Life branch looked after the 8km water point so a bunch of us crazies woke… Read More From the other side
Last year, Nick got to run the Two Oceans half marathon as part of a work thing and I had such FOMO – even though I hadn’t yet actually run a half marathon! I was really keen to experience the race for myself so when entries for the 2016 event opened up we decided to… Read More Two Oceans!
My first work week of 2016 is done. Another festive season done and it’s time to pack away the tree and it’s tinsel. Smokey the cat will miss the baubles to play with! So I guess it’s time to think about what I want from 2016, right? As I said here, I am not big on serious resolutions, but… Read More Hello 2016!
Yes – believe it… I am writing something! It has been a crazy, busy, stressful few months leading up to the end of 2015 and quite honestly I just haven’t had the time or energy to pay attention to my blog! I’ve seen a couple of 2015 round ups recently, so I thought that this… Read More 25 things about 2015
You know you’re a runner when you listen to podcasts and read loads of articles about running. Earlier this week, whilst on my dreary commute to work, I listened to a couple of podcasts by Comrades Coach Lindsey Parrie. You know you’re a South African runner when you know who he is! The podcasts were… Read More What’s your reason?
