When I talk to my non running friends about running a common theme bubbles to the surface; ‘don’t you get bored?’, ‘how do you keep going?’ I certainly didn’t wake up one morning and say to myself, ‘I’m going to run for 3 hours this morning’, it’s been a slow and gradual process over about… Continue reading What I listen to on a run
Welcome to the first installment 'Get out there' trail review posts. As a beginner trail runner, there were few things I found more daunting than finding somewhere to run. I was worried I would get lost, that I would run out of water, that I would wear the wrong shoes and the "real" trail runners… Continue reading Get out there: You Yangs- Saddle Back Track
“Veganize yo life”- That’s the advice my 10 yr + vegan friend gave me. Being a beginner vegan or newly minted plant based eater is a difficult place to find yourself.

kudos go out to Subway Australia today! They ditched the plastic bag! This may be old news but I was pretty stoked.

Everything but the kitchen sink. It's been working… Continue reading Got my keep cup!
Don't worry I'm not being slack, I haven't disappeared or given up. In a minor deviation from the Netflix documentaries, I started watching The War on Waste which has become some what of a phenomenon here in Australia over the past couple of weeks. The first installment of the three part series, talked about food… Continue reading Tackling the War on Waste
So I have been a little MIA lately, but my challenge is still going. The True Cost challenge was a great start for me. I'm sorry I was slack on the sharing end. After my initial running gear audit, I had a look at the rest of my wardrobe and made a substantial donation to… Continue reading Sustainable running gear review
Bugger. My 'True Cost' challenge this month has really been about thinking more about where my clothes come from and the 'true cost' for humanity and for the environment of the choices that I was making.
