Me, a few years ago: I'm feeling tired, I think I'll lie on the couch for a while. Me, today: I'm feeling tired, I should go for a run. Lying on the couch when I'm feeling tired makes me even more tired, lethargic and moody. Going for a r... Read more

... you start tracking your runs on several apps! I track my runs using both runkeeper and runtastic (I know it sounds a bit crazy, but aren't we all just a little bit crazy). Running is something that is not easy for me at all, it's never ... Read more
Happy Birthday To Me!

So today is my birthday, turning 45 and feeling awesome. Started off the day with a 6 mile run at 3.45 am. Why so early, you ask. Well, I knew the rest of the day was going to be crazy. I'm reporting back to work today after my annual leave. Aft... Read more

During my run this morning, I realized that there were many runners/walkers along the trail. I could not help noticing their fancy workout clothes and their obviously new sneakers. They looked enthusiastic, like people with a definite plan. Some... Read more

Thank you spark friends for praying for my sister. She is doing much better. Last week was physically and emotionally draining for me because of her sickness and the daily commute to her place was not easy. But I thank God for His healing grace ... Read more

I had a very confusing experience today - I met a lady that I had not seen for about three weeks. The first words out of her mouth were "You have grown fat!". Now that was totally confusing to me. I saw this lady just three weeks ago. I weigh my... Read more
Awesome day

Today has been amazing. Started off with an 8.13 mi run. Then later did a 10.13 mi walk with my sister. We talked and laughed and enjoyed each other's company. I'd hoped to do the walk with all three of my sisters but only one was available. She... Read more
Runner's Envy
Friday, October 21, 2016      3 comments

Envy: desire to have a quality, possession or other desirable attribute belonging to (someone else). I don't know whether the term 'runner's envy' actually exists, I came up with the idea on my way to work this morning. I passed several ear... Read more

NSV... And other thoughts
Sunday, September 25, 2016      8 comments

First things first... I have a pair of trousers that I have not put on for quite a while. It gets forgotten easily since the material is not stretch and because of this, a few extra inches on the hips become very obvious. I decided to try them... Read more

Wednesday, September 21, 2016      3 comments

I have not done fitness blender workouts for a long time. I decided to get back to them on Monday and yesterday I woke up with some serious but sweet soreness (Delayed onset of muscle soreness). The soreness persisted to today. This led to a bit... Read more

The week in review
Sunday, August 21, 2016      8 comments

So this past week I ran five times, doing a total of 30.74mi. I'm slowly getting to the point where I enjoy running. The hills are still really tough, and my route has many hills. But nothing can beat the feeling I get at the top of every hill. ... Read more
I'm glad I didn't listen

I was just feeling really lazy. I hit the snooze button several times even though I knew I needed to go out for a run. I kept telling myself I deserved a break, and yet I wasn't really tired. I'd had a good night's sleep and I was feeling fresh.... Read more
