We're half way through May which means I've reached the half way point for Miles for Mind. I challenged myself to run 75 miles across May in order to raise awareness around mental health and well being. I'll be honest, it's been a bit more of a bumpy ride to get here than I'd anticipated.… Continue reading Miles for Mind Update

Anyhow, it got me thinking about how much I share of the boys… Continue reading To share or not to share?
I love a bit of race bling. I've always thought it's symbolic of the effort I've put in, both in terms of my training and the race itself. In the past I've always run for me, whether I've run as a member of a formal running club or more recently on my own. It's always… Continue reading Racing…is it all about the bling?
