The word of the month is INCREDIBLE!

Incredible; so extraordinary as to seem impossible. The only way I have been able to explain the New York Marathon is by saying it was incredible. I have used this word so much that I feel like I have worn it out, but it was simply just that. It seems so impossible that 50,000 runners representing 125 countries across the globe congregate to NYC to take on one of the worlds greatest marathon runs. It is also so extraordinary that apparently 1.2 million people line the streets of the 5 boroughs cheering, supporting and celebrating each runners NYC marathon dream. To run this...

Week 17 - Mum loves to Run NYC - Running is fun for your feet

“When you have confidence, you can have a lot of fun. When you have fun, you can do amazing things”  - Joe Namath The weekend just gone, for the AFL fan will know that this is probably the biggest weekend on the sporting calendar with the Grand Final. It’s one of BBQs, social drinks, time spent with friends and family and of course football. When you’re training for a marathon, it’s a weekend which goes by like any other really. Regardless of who’s playing and what social event is happening, you’ve got to run! My family and I spent the...

Week 16 - Mum Loves to run NYC - Mind over Body

“The body achieves what the mind believes” - unknown “Look at you, you’re so skinny”. “Gee, what have you been doing, you’ve lost so much weight”. These are all too common greetings I get these days, mainly from people who haven’t seen me for awhile and who don’t know me all that well. I am pretty sure there is no negative judgement there but when I hear these things so often, it becomes tiresome and I start to feel uncomfortable about my appearance. So much so that I contacted my coach recently to ask about foods that will help me keep...

Week 4 - Sense of Achievement - Mum Loves to Run NYC

Week 4 and the feeling of achievement is starting to really shine through. Yes, even in these early days of training and even though I have been here before. A marathon is so much more than just that one race. It’s a whole experience that incorporates 16-18 weeks of solid training. I often think a marathon resembles the well known quote that “happiness is not a destination, it is a way of life”. And each marathon campaign is different and despite this being my fourth, it’s a new campaign with its own triumphs and challenges. Every run is a goal...

Week 3 - Listen to your body -  Mum loves to run NYC

This week started like any other week. Monday brings new opportunities and excitement for me and especially when I’m in training, I’m excited to see what the week brings. It definitely turned out to be a mixed bag and I specifically wanted to share out about how listening to your body is so crucial. As I write this I am reminded of a time when I was training for my first marathon. I was about 2 months out and was getting ready at home for my Wednesday night run group session. Whilst doing so, I stubbed my toe quite badly...
