liz ross-collier – anything is possible

in this week’s edition of the sh*t-sorter files, we head across the tasman sea, to the land of the long white cloud and the short distorted vowels… not surprisingly, i met this lady online, via the facebook running community. as you might expect by now, this is the tale of an ordinary woman, making extraordinary […]

back to the gym

back to the gym

having skipped last week’s cross-training day, so the schedule lined up with the city to surf event, it seems an absolute age since i last went to the gym. in reality it was 2 weeks. i was hoping to see a similar drop in weight as last time. disappointment ensued. on the plus side, i […]

it’s all about the hills

it’s all about the hills

yesterday i took part in my first ever “city to surf”. i had a “10km race” lined up on the training schedule, so i figured that a 12km event would be close enough. it was, by far, the largest event i have taken part in to date. about 30,000 12km runners, compared to the 1000ish […]

bit of a catch-up

bit of a catch-up

for various reasons, i’ve not been maintaining the daily diary entry – mostly due to being busy… this week has been all about the perth city to surf, which is happening on sunday (aug 25th). well, obviously the training schedule is all about the fremantle half in october, but you know what i mean! every […]

this week’s sh*t-sorter is another Queenslander! I guess they really must be sorting their sh*t out in that part of Australia… another positive, supportive member of the facebook running community, I was delighted when my offer to tell their story was taken up…. so let’s get started – can you tell us your name, where […]

what gift has running given you?

what gift has running given you?

rest day today. for some reason i’m really feeling it. wanted to head out for a run first thing this morning and had to remind myself that rest days are good things… so instead of thinking while running, i’ve just done some thinking. not for long mind, it makes my brain hurt without the brain […]

a nice relaxing run

a nice relaxing run

it was 2:30ish when i woke this morning. this pattern i’m settling into means i am in bed not long after my 4 year old son. so i don’t do much/any work at night now, nor do i watch much tv anymore. i miss neither. i love getting up and going for a run. which […]

kristina – live laugh love run

this week’s shit-sorter is yet another massively popular facebook “identity”. actually, i reckon pretty much everyone in the facebook is popular, seeing as they are all so damned great, supportive and friendly… but anyway, as i am finding out, everyone has a story to tell, a journey that has had massive positive impact, and this […]
