May Journey of Self Discovery

I can’t quite believe it’s been two months since my last Journey of Self Discovery Workshop. The time has flown by! I absolutely loved every minute of it and by the end I was positively buzzing. If you had stuck a pin in me, I would have definitely popped glitter! It’s a wonderful feeling, to…

An Open Letter To My Mum

Hi Mum, It’s only me! I hope you can hear me? I feel you can. Today it’s your birthday and I still miss you like crazy. On this day ten years ago, I had my fortieth birthday party. Don’t get me wrong it was great, but along with many of my best friends, you weren’t…

So far so good!

Firstly a massive apology for going AWOL on you. I’ve been so busy living life, I have barely had time to catch my breath, never mind write about it! At last my day’s off and work pattern seem to follow some semblance of order which has made fitting it all in a bit easier. Although…

Life after a Marathon.

The trouble with achieving any long held goal, dream or ambition is the inevitable feeling of loss once you’ve finally got there. I know from many years experience as a coach that there always seems to be the “what next?” bit. Let’s face it you’ve worked your socks off, possibly for months. Eat, slept and…

Whatever you do – make it fun!

So there I was cleaning the cooker, merrily singing along to the song ‘Footloose’ on the radio, when I suddenly found myself remembering a funny observation I had made whilst out on my last run. I realised that I run differently to whatever song comes blasting through my earphones at the time, and it really…

Holiday Heaven

I’ve just come back from one of the best holidays I’ve ever had. Ian and I have never spent so much time together in the whole 24 years we’ve been together and amazingly we are still talking! Okay so I’m always talking, but he’s still there to hear it. We joined my Sister-in-law Judy and…

Positive energy

I have to be honest, I really didn’t fancy my run this morning. I was tired, I’d been on an early shift all week, so had less sleep, my Fitbit was impressed with my many, many steps just from a normal day at work and as my oh so lovely (yet honest) hubby pointed out,…

Spooky reflection…

I love this time of year. I know it has suddenly got dark so much earlier, but there is something lovely about crunchy leaves, hot soup and of course dressing up all gothy! It’s such a contrast from this time last year. Nothing seemed right. If my wheel of life was a real one it…

On a mission!

Well since my holiday trying to get back to normal has felt like a nigh on impossible task. Since the start of this week though, I’ve been on a mission to get jiggy with it and get myself back in to gear. All good coaches have coaches and I am no exception, but with my…
