Courage doesn’t always roar. Sometimes, courage is the little voice at the end of the day that says “I’ll try again tomorrow”. After all, it’s not about how many times you get knocked down right? It’s how many times you can get back up. Isn’t that how it goes? No matter how much you plan […]

The Sequel…

It’s been a while, hey? Almost 3 months since I last blogged and I’ve finally decided I should probably give everyone a little update. Back in May, the post I wrote provided me with the opportunity to close a chapter in my life and begin a new one. That I most certainly have done, but […]

New Beginnings

It really has been quite a while since my last blog post! I think I’ve forgotten how to do it… So, where to begin? Well, things have changed rather a lot since I last posted. I came back to Loughborough in January ready for my two exams and raring to go with training. The exams […]

“You’ll never know how many miles you’ll have to run when you’re chasing your dream…”

I’ve always been the kind of athlete that develops as the season goes on. I have a few mediocre races to begin with before finding my form and getting my race head fully in the game for a few months. On this basis, 2013 promised to be a pretty good year! In spring I was […]

A Brand New Ankle :)

This week was a huge stepping stone for me and my recovery from injury and my little ballerina ankles are now (hopefully) a thing of the past! I’ve always had a large amount of flexibility in my ankles and the instability that came with it was essentially what has been causing me to have stress […]
