August; Where’s it at?

Completed: My longest ever event.  26 glorious kilometers of Peaks and Trails.  I love trail running, and trail running loves me.

It was at this event that it was the first time (and maybe only time) being on the podium.

Winning: While talking about podium placing, I recently won our local running club (not quite) 5km event.

2016 Runmum 5kmI didn’t feel like I went fast, and the weather was cold & icy. However I smashed out the run in a time of 22:20.

Considering: Entering a road half marathon, to see if I can smash out a new pb.

Melbourne Marathon in Oct or Carmen’s in Dec? Oh to decide.

Over: Winter.  We have had some glorious sunny days.  Albeit a bit cold, but hello sun where have you been?  How I have missed you.

Excited: About our spring holiday.  Two weeks with the family doing what we like when we like.  It’s going to be FAB!

Made: My ‘Dead Easy Chocolate’ cake the other day.  It was of course dead easy, but it was way too sweet! I will have to add less sugar than what is stated. Oh how my taste buds have changed.

Making: Subtle changes to the website. Have you noticed?

Read: A lot of books in August. 9 in total. 3 of which were audio-books (a book is a book regardless of the format), and another 2 were kids books that I read out loud to Master M. All in all a good month for reading.

Deciding: On what book to read next.  Oh the choices?! One will definitely be ‘Hopeless’ by Colleen Hoover, as it’s a library book, and I want to return it before going away.

Watched: Zootopia.  I really wanted to see this one on the big screen with the kids, but it didn’t happen.  I was actually really surprised with this movie.  It wasn’t at all what I expected (in a good way), and considering all the things that are happening in the world, the message was clear but timely reminder.

Working: Really sporadic hours.  Some weeks 6 days, other weeks 3 days.  I’ve been taking on extra shifts, but it would be nice to have some more permanent hours.


If you had to pick a collection of words to describe what’s been happening in your life in August, what would you pick?
