Where it all began.
Four years ago.
My very first event.
The Hutt News Fun Run.

It took 39 minutes to run that 5ks.
The next year it took 36 minutes.
The year after that I was saying goodbye to my sister in Scotland.
The following year I ran the 10k. 1 hour 2 minutes.

So. Four years on. And I cant help think how terrifying it is that the time has slipped so quickly and easily through my grasp. As if I had a grasp.

So tomorrow morning I'll put my Hutt News Fun Run racing bib on for the 4th time.

And hopefully, like time itself, I'll run quickly and easily too.

Best Run Ever

Best run ever.
And by "run" I mean "sitting on my bum hashing life out with my best friend in the whole world who if it wasn't for her I wouldn't be running and I can't believe she can't because she's busted her archilles".  That's what I mean by run.  We didn't.  But we did.

Read this if you're about to give up...

If you are struggling to stay on track know this... You are so close. So close to success. So close. You just can't see it. That's why it feels so far away.
If I told you that I could see it and it looks amazing and it was just around that corner you would keep going. You wouldn't stop.

I know you can't see it ... But it's so close. Don't give up now.

It really is just around the corner.

I hate my body.

Urgh. I hate my body.  I went to yoga tonight.  Twisting and turning my flabby and floppy and wobbly bits.  I hate my body. 
Wait. 
Enough. 
I love my body.
And just like that... In the middle of camel pose... Everything changed. I love my body. And I'm gonna start treating it with the respect it deserves. 
I love my body. 
For the very first time in my life ... I love my body. I've hated my body for so long now. I've been treating it like it's a useless failure that lets me down and embarrasses me constantly. 
My body ... I'm so sorry. 
Tomorrow I'll stand tall. I'll make no excuses. I'll be grateful. 
I. Love. My. Body.
