Some of you may remember that at the start of this year, the year of my fortieth birthday, I made a goal for myself, 40 events for my fortieth. This seemed to be a very feasible goal that I could achieve through my regularly scheduled races I wouldn’t miss for the world, plus a few extra [...]

Part 3: Heel Pain: Confessions Of A Podiatrist with Heel Pain Injury and Her Tips for Runners with Heel Pain
Not all heel pain will resolve using a conservative home-treatment approach. In a clinical setting we find runners will approach us after weeks, if not months, of trying multiple treatments at home. By this point, most heel pain injuries can be classified as chronic (i.e not healing on its own).. I will outline the treatment [...]
Part 2: Heel Pain: Confessions Of A Podiatrist with Heel Pain Injury and Her Tips for Runners with Heel Pain
Treating Heel Pain Yourself at Home Are you like me when it comes to asking for recommendations? When I treat a patient of a certain nationality I ask for their opinion of where to go to enjoy an authentic meal from their country. When I listen and end up taking my family out to those [...]
Part 1: Heel Pain – Confessions Of A Podiatrist with Heel Pain and Her Tips for Runners with Heel Pain
A PODIATRIST WITH A CONFESSION Will you judge me if I say I'm a runner who has experienced a long list of foot injuries? Because I am a Podiatrist, would you think I am incompetent because I fall victim to the same foot conditions and injuries that I treat on a daily basis? Similarly, when [...]

It's been a strange couple of months. The world as we know it has gone into lockdown and our days have been occupied with thoughts of COVID-19 and for many of us it has changed our lives. No longer are we working from the same premises, or for some, working at all. And no longer [...]

In partnership with The Love Mercy Foundation, we are so excited to bring you a virtual run that will connect from afar and have [...]
To start with, I will go back, waaaayyy back. 15 years ago, I found myself a single mumma to 2 beautiful children. My daughter was 7 and my son 4. My son is on the autism spectrum and intellectually impaired, so I moved across the country to move closer to my family for support. I worked [...]
For so many of us runners this year was going to be the year that we tackled "that race" or "that goal". Being the beginning of the year, many of us were well on our way to working towards the achievements we had set ourselves when COVID-19 hit our world. BANG. WHAT JUST HAPPENED? At [...]
Ever since I ran my first half marathon at the Australian running festival in Canberra in 2016, I’ve had my eyes on the people running the 50km ultra in absolute awe. Wow! How could they do that? How could their legs go for that long? Could I one day get there? It seemed unimaginable. I [...]
