The story starts in January 2018 when out of the blue I decided I’d run the half marathon at Melbourne marathon in October 2018. I signed up early and told as many people as I could for accountability. I started training straight away and managed to run 19km in 2.5 hours so thought I was [...]
When it comes to exercising during pregnancy - whether you should run or not throughout your pregnancy is a topic that comes with many opinions. The truth is - you need to reflect on yourself, your body, your pregnancy and your baby as to whether running is the right choice for you. The goal of [...]
Just over 12 months ago, my good natured self innocently volunteered to help out with a prep year excursion with some other Mums from school. RMA Ambassador, Ana Croger, was good enough to drive a few of us from Brisbane, with the conversation free flowing about children, husbands, work and life in general. It was [...]

I have been running and competing in triathlons for around 10 years now and not once did I really feel the ‘want’ to run 100kms but that all changed [...]
As the rain pelts down on the streets of New York City we are watching the garbage trucks, NYPD cars, endless yellow taxis and array black umbrellas pass by the window of the Hilton Executive Lounge. The small price to pay for a perfect race morning! My legs are still a little stiff, but looking [...]
Late in 2015 I heard about an event in China, the organisers were looking for International athletes of a certain standard to participate in a 50km event in the Gobi Desert. They would cover much of our expenses. It seemed like too good an opportunity to pass up. That year had been a great year [...]
