As always, its that time of the year again where one looks back and recalls all those special (and not so) moments.
This weekend’s long run was very exciting as we were at “that point” again……. the point of 30kms!! It shouldn’t be so challenging as it is only 2 kms more than last Saturday however it is the idea of having to complete a long run that has a 3 in front!!! Continue reading

There have many countless of articles of what it is like to live with a”runner” this is why I would like to write about what it is like to live with a person who doesn’t understand your “love for running”!!!
Dear Non Runners,
After a lot of thought and desire to not hurt anyone’s feelings, I want you to take a little time and read our “thoughts on paper”.
Yes I know, it may become truly weary…. even drab, listening to someone constantly boring you stiff on how much they ran, which part of their body hurts, how their next training schedule should be like…….the list goes on – I know I have said the same things a million times to the same person.

Turning a deaf ear is so easy and anyone can do it!!
