Maori Race Can Zam Santa Coloma

I completed my 3rd obstacle race this year back in November! The Maori Race. A 7km, 30 obstacle race in a more urban setting. I ran my first Maori Race back in June. It wasn’t my intention to join a team. I met 2 other girls on the course and we teamed up for the remainder. None of us knew our names until afterwards! It was great working as team. Less burpees and help with the more tricky obstacles. On reflection, I’m not sure if I want to run as a team again.

Anyways, Weekend Friday Favourites, things that have made me smile or caught my eye this week on a Monday. Continue reading “Weekend Friday Favourites”

Weekend Friday Favourites

This week has gone so fast it seems like I’m just catching my breath and getting organised. Honestly I don’t know where the first 3 days of it went. I didn’t get as much done as I’d liked but I did get massively swollen eyelids and under eyes. So puffed up my eyelids were nearly touching my eyebrows. Never have they ever got that bad. The worst was the under eye area or bags. That was like the Ghost of Christmas Future visited if I don’t take better care of myself.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I’ve no idea if it was something I ate, touched, a reaction to a new mascara, too much YouTube Continue reading “Weekend Friday Favourites”
