I have been called many things in my life but “mummy” is definitely my favourite. On March 5th, 2012 Big A and I welcomed this gorgeous little guy into the world.
He was the most precious thing I had ever seen and I feel truly blessed everyday to be his mummy.
Without a doubt being a mother is the most demanding role of my life but it is also the most rewarding BY FAR! I probably get it wrong half the time but hey, I’m working it out as I go.
I started running in 2008 and my relationship with running has evolved a lot over these last years. I have dabbled in it, done it socially and done it for times and PBs. It probably took me the best part of 3 years to work out exactly what running means to me and in what forms I do and don’t enjoy it and here it is:
Running is about pushing myself, improving and taking myself out of my comfort zone all for that satisfaction of achievement at the end. It is my time to switch off from my day to day life and let my mind and body free. For me, the benefits of running extend long beyond the time I am out on the pavement. Running gives me an energy boost and a “mental” restart that help me achieve the most out of each of my days. I am a better person because I do run and I will never see the time I am away from my family running as a sacrifice because running improves the time when I am with my family.
I LOVE speedwork. Strange? Yes some may say so but as tough as it can be to get out the door for a “hard” session once I am out and warmed up I am pumped. I love intervals and tempo runs. There is nothing like shaving seconds of your time or coming home knowing that you gave everything you had in the tank.
I enjoy the occasional social run but now I am a mum I prefer to have running as “me” time and love being able to tailor my runs to my own limits and potential.
