The Running Project (part 1)

For those of you that are just tuning in. You’re just in time! This is my running project for 2022. 1200km running for the year. I dragged myself out of a COVID slump in 2021 and attempted the 1000km challenge, completing it just days before the year’s end. So of course this set my brain into a frenzy of what ifs, and could I’s for … Continue reading The Running Project (part 1)

6 Things I Learned From Running 1000km This Year

This year started out very differently than it is finishing for me. I started out training for a marathon in the spring, having just got back into running, this was a feat in itself. 12 weeks of training up. Yes, it is as exhausting as it sounds. I ran the marathon in May. After completing it (and recovering from it) I got to thinking, could … Continue reading 6 Things I Learned From Running 1000km This Year

Time for a change

Well. It is that time. Maybe serendipitous the changing of summer to autumn on the horizon. My work has made a change of my job as well. Renewal and rebirth on my mind.

At least one in person … Continue reading Time for a change

I had decided back in January to mark my fortieth birthday with something different. Due to the pandemic there was no big 40th bash to be had, no … Continue reading The Forty on Forty Project

Running through an injury?

So I’m not sure if this is a thing or not. But a week and a half ago, while trail running, I tripped and rolled over my ankle. Badly. Bloody Hell. Nothing more inconvenient than a rolled ankle while marathon training right? I laid there like a sorry mess for a moment. Assessing the damage. It didn’t “feel” broken. And we were pretty far from … Continue reading Running through an injury?

About Running.

Well this one’s all about running. Since starting this Forty on forty project, it’s basically all I’m doing. Wake run. Work run. Run run. Pushing towards the ultimate goal of running a full marathon on my 40th birthday. Eek. When did that sneak up? I am about half through training and am now 2 months away from race day. It’s wild the amount of dedication … Continue reading About Running.

And what about objectives.

Do you plan out your years adventure objectives down to the fine details? Or just go where the wind takes you? I find myself somewhere in the middle. I have my agenda if you will. My big ticket items squared away. The ones that require some forethought. The ones that are multiple days, or hella logistics. The one I end up cashing in Alpine chips … Continue reading And what about objectives.
