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 […]

“Today you are you, that is truer than true. There is no one alive that is youer than you”. – Dr. Seuss

There are moments in our lives where we find ourselves at a crossroad, afraid, confused, lost and without a map. The choices that we make in those moments can define the rest of our lives. I feel like right now, I am at this point in my life. I have faced a number of smaller […]

“Sunny Days are Better” – Optimist.

Expectation. Pressure. Opportunity. Pride. Failure.   Which one of those words strikes you as the odd one out? Pretty obvious isn’t it? Last weekend I related to every single one of these words and within the space of about half an hour, I went from a girl with an unbelievable dream to a girl with […]

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 […]

“If you do what you’ve always done, you’ll get what you’ve always got…”

“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 […]

Life is like a mirror. It’ll smile at you if you smile at it

New life motto. I quite like this saying and I’ve decided to take it on board and live by it. After all, the best thing you can wear is a smile right? (Personally I think a onesie is the best thing you can wear, but hey, that’s just me). Anyway, what I’m getting at is […]
