Enough

I have had enough. * I don’t really know where to begin with this entry, except to say that I am fed up. I am so fed up with feel shit about myself, it makes my skin itch. (Or that may be the 10+ mosquito bites I have. I dunno). I’m stubborn; I know this. But eventually…

744 Hours Later

It’s been a month today. Thirty times I have managed to get myself through the day and night since you’ve been gone. It’s been three months since my life was turned upside down and six months since I felt happy. It still doesn’t feel real. It was only in November that we learned you were…

Climbing Mt Batur, Bali, Indonesia

One of the reasons I wanted to travel to Bali was so that I could climb an active volcano, at night and see the sunrise at the top, eating boiled eggs cooked in the steam from the crater. And so I did. It was pretty amazing. I was picked up at 2am by a driver…

7 Days in Melbourne

I’ve been “living” in Melbourne for a week! While I can’t say it feels like home (yet), what I can say is that this city makes living an active and healthy life pretty easy and I hope I can find my place here. There are amazing veggie/vegan/raw restaurants, gyms/fitness centres/boutique studios on every corner, there’s…

Moving to Melbourne

I’m moving to Melbourne on Wednesday. I’ve wanted to move abroad for a few years; my desire to move to Australia began when I went to Sydney for my brother’s wedding in 2012. The seed was fully planted then and has grown ever since. 2014 has been…a tumultuous and difficult year so far. I won’t…

6 Ways to Stay Healthy on Holiday

It’s no secret – eating right and exercising often takes time & planning – especially if you’re training for a race or trying to lose weight! My recent trip to Zürich was incredible; I enjoyed myself, ate well and still got in my scheduled long run for Run Hackney. If you want a few tips on…
