So many friends running #hbfrunforareason on this glorious Autumn day in Perth: half-marathon, 12km, 4km - kudos all! 👍 I’m still feeling cycling burnout and my IBD is giving me absolute hell, so it was a 2.5km stroll in the sunshine with Mitzy & The Husb for me. Note the self-deprecating (but true!) fun leggings. 😂 I am inspired by my running friends though. City to Surf 12km is shaping up as a goal for August…🌞🏃🍂
I decided that I’d still hit the gym, even if the motivation was low due to some period pain. AND I managed to also do my strength training for upper body so I’m really proud for doing it! 💪 Now I’m about to eat an healthy snack, probably a banana with some cashews and then I’ll keep reading my “Outlander” book as I’m totally hooked up on it!!
My Three Dams Challenge #6 is done!
2 April 2017
This 145km event in the Perth Hills is always hard and it got very hot on the road but I enjoyed the ride despite the suffering! (What is it with cyclists and suffering?) What’s more, look how full the dams are! #winning
Keep On Running

I followed up yesterday’s run training by taking The Husb on a 5.7km hike around the Zamia Trail this morning. (See, there’s a native zamia palm behind him.) Then I backed that up with another couple of klicks walking Mitzy around the block with My Girl.
I am now 37 days alcohol-free and have surpassed my $1000 Dry July fund raising goal for cancer support services. This is a big deal for me. It also means my self-imposed sobriety could finish if I wanted to but I don’t want to drink for the sake of it. I also do not want to slip back into my nightly wine habit. #smiling #striving #winning
