Fat Girl Swimming …

First swim of the year down at Cudgeon Creek this afternoon. And despite a little sunburn (what was I thinking not putting on sunscreen!?!?!?), I continue to be amazed at just how I’ve learned to give-n0-fcks about going into the water.

So I’m now officially at the half-way point of my #Countdownto50. Holy! That came around much more quickly than I realised. We all say that though don’t we?

Twighlight Run 2018 – my first full 5k

This time last Sunday I completed my very first run of 5 kilometres at the University of Queensland Twilight Run. I was running as part of the #ISeeDeadlyPeople team with some of the other Brisbane Deadly Runners crew.

My first sports skirt

Don’t you just love the hot pink? Do you think it will make me go faster?

Tackling the Douglas Track. My first walk in FNQ

“Would you like to come for a walk? It’s not very hard.”

“It’s not very hard”. When someone tells me it’s “not hard”, I’m learning that there are different definitions of “hard” and I maybe shouldn’t trust their judgement or assessment. And it’s not just friends, it’s also with Queensland National Parks and Wildlife. I will never again believe their definition of “easy”.

Rest isn’t a waste / weekend 1 / 52

I feel I’m becoming obsessed with time. Don’t get me wrong, I am enjoying my life, and am very content. Perhaps I’m in the middle of a mid-life crisis where I feel like I don’t want to waste a moment. (Is this why I’m becoming movement obsessed?) Or in the very least, if I am to “waste time”, I am conscious and intentional about it.

Farewell 2017, hello 2018

I felt like 2017 was a significant year for me. It was my first full year in the office (with the business outside of home). I started FatAdventurers! and worked on Black Coffee with Thomas from Townsville. I joined Brisbane Deadly Runners and competed in my very first FunRun – something that I’d flagged well before I ever knew Deadly Runners existed.
