Travel: runDisney Weekend - Part 1

There are 2 important things you need to know about me:
1) I'm a HUGE Disney Nerd - and proud of it.
2) I LOVE TO TRAVEL. See new places (or the same favourite places 👀) , meet new faces. Have a cultural exchange & swap life perspectives.


I have a huge list of places I want to see but one place I always will want to come back to is Paris. Ever since I stepped foot in France & all my daydreams met my reality, it's somewhere I just adore. This summer, me & my boys, hubby included visited Disneyland Paris for the first time and that too lived up to my expectations.


I felt so at home there, I am seriously considering investing in an annual pass.

This weekend is the 2nd runDisney weekend in Paris and yours truly is going to be there. My first official 10k race had to be in the place that makes me extremely happy. Am I looking forward to it!? You betcha'!

I'm meeting my Online Running Family at the Eurostar to experience this together.

Today though, I had fun with my sister... who incidentally is my last link to my FOO. It was nice to catch up after a long time and I realise how grown up she actually is.

We met for dinner and looking across the table from her, my mind takes me back to her age. 18.

Newly emancipated, making my first wobbly steps into the very scary world of Adults. I only had my hubby (my boyfriend then) for support at the time but I was just so happy to be free-ish.

Now, 11 years later, I've done a lot of growing of course, I'm no longer the same person I was then. I still have the same wounds, I just deal with them differently. I'm a free woman. I own my decisions & rock my choices.


I wonder where we'll be in the next decade. Excited to see where this life takes us.

For now, I'll be revelling in the Magic of Disney!

Got An Answer: My Rheumatoid Diagnosis

Back in the spring when I started having what I can only describe as the worst pain ever, I didn't know how things would pan out for me. I've been through some really dark times (even for me .. *titter* ) I went from full pelt Half Marathon Training (my last run being just over 10 miles) to hobbling out of bed and struggling with the stairs.



The worst thing for me was aside from my obviously painful swollen ankles, I looked the same. It didn't seem like my whole body was on fire. The crippling fatigue & worst still the shroud of hopelessness that engulfed me.

I didn't miss one day of work even though some days i'd rather be knocked out than endure one second of the day. I still did the parent thing. The partner thing. The business owner thing.
I now know better because yet again, I pushed through and would end up crashing at weekends.

It all started with a mass in my breast. I wrote about it here & explored more here.

RED January

I did RED January and here's what I learnt: 

January is a long brutal month so getting outside is a prerequisite to survive it. 


It's wet & some of your usual routes may not be the best at this time of year! 



Most of the time you'll have to run in the dark but you'll love it anyway - Be Safe, Be Seen! 


Sometimes you get the best of the Winter Sun and everything just clicks into place.


You get braver and end up going to Park Run for a strong finish, your limbs hate you but your mind loves you. 
I'm training for a half marathon as you know so I made it through January by Walking, Running, Pilates, Yoga & Rowing. 









How the eff is this my life? - Moving Forward After a Hard Knock.

Do you ever have those days when all you can say is “how the fuck is this my life?”
Sometimes said in a Wow! I’m killing it but mostly said in bewilderment. I try and be present and aware of  what’s happening around me & within me, however I’m also guilty of zoning out and getting through my days in a perpetual daze. Occasionally you look up and you are stunned at what your life has become.



When this happens, you may be anxious or feel helpless about where you’ve ended up. Either through your own choices or the cards you’ve been dealt. I just wanted to write today, it’s never too late to make changes in order to achieve the life you want.

I’ve been saying that phrase lately but I know that life changes and we’ve got to adapt the best way we know how. So for me, I know with my new diagnosis, I can’t take on as much like I used to.
I need to give myself wiggle room in my schedule. I have to be kind to myself and say no to things I really want to do so I can function better. I need …
