As the marathon date is getting near, I experience a bulk of emotions. Though that may be expected, it freaks me out, sort of. Experiencing emotions is new to me.

From ideas to commitments A period of finalising thoughts, setting plans in motion and celebrations. December 2015 Runner’s highs, the flu, research, and plenty of thinking. I almost feel as if for the last few years I’ve been slowly crawling up on the rollercoaster and last month it crossed the tipping point and we’re sliding, no…

November 2015 – Go big or go home Regardless of how sound a plan is at the start, after a while I get itchy and need to evaluate, and maybe add some changes. 8 November, 2015. A few days ago I experienced my 1st runners high. During and at the end of the run I…
