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 [...]

When I look back to my younger years, running around my neighbourhood with nothing but myself, my cares and troubles, or my dreams and visions it is hard to imagine the change that would happen within me when I would reach my 20’s and 30’s and find my tribe. Those years of running solo were [...]
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 [...]

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 [...]

Our climate across the world has changed at a rapid rate these last few weeks, where we see COVID-19 infiltrating our countries, our people, our health care systems, our economy and our wellbeing. With so much uncertainty and angst, one thing remains clear, we are stronger together. If we band together and do the right [...]
The challenge was one set by David Goggins – Google him if you don’t know him at all. You will understand where the craziness to do this challenge comes from. Its 4 Miles (6.4kms) every 4 hours for 48 hours straight. My trainer from the gym I attend said that he was going to complete the [...]
I did not choose this race; the race chose me. Now that it’s done, I know that it happened this way for so many reasons other than actually running 50km. The last 12 months has been a spectacular journey of ups and downs and round and rounds. Let me take you on the ride…… 2019 was a really [...]
