Slowly getting back on the road

I’m slowly getting back on the road. This plantar fasciitis problem is so frustrating and I feel like it’s never going to go away. But it is getting slightly better. I’ve now had this problem for months and it really wasn’t budging. I tried so very many things to get it sorted. I’ve done physio, sports massage, bio kenetics and I’ve also seen a podiatrist. After the very expensive podiatry failure that then caused ITB, I decided that this was complete nonsense and once last push was needed before I gave up completely. So, I joined a gym. Then...

An evening masterclass with Jan Hendrik at Discovery Healthy Food Studio

My friend Karen and I went to the Discovery Healthy Food Studio on Monday night for a masterclass with Jan Hendrik. A few weeks ago, she’d spotted an evening soiree with Jan Hendrik advertised on Facebook in Wellington. We very nearly booked that… but thankfully she spotted this event on Facebook. So we had an amazing night out in Sandton instead. Much closer to home! Jan Hendrik, if you didn’t know… is a South African chef with a restaurant called JAN in Nice France. Not only that, but he’s the only South African with a Michelin star! Yip, now...

A morning with a friend at the Sanlam Handmade Contemporary Fair

Karen and I went to the Sanlam Handmade Contemporary Fair this morning. It’s held annually on the roof top at Hyde Park shopping centre. It was actually the first time either one of us had been. We got there as the doors opened at 10am, and I’m really thankful we planned that because the parking was already a nightmare in the centre. As we normally do when we walk into a market, we headed straight for the champagne. The first stand we saw was Graham Beck and we tried the Rose sparkling wine. It was really delicious! There were...

A week at Zinkwazi is way too short

We’ve just got home from a week’s holiday to the KZN village of Zinkwazi. It was the first time we’d been to that village, and we absolutely loved it! A week definitely wasn’t enough time to spend there. Zinkwazi is about 35km north of Ballito on the KZN coastline. It’s a tiny place with a few streets. There’s one cafe, Zinkwazi Cafe that sells a few essentials and also has makes the amazing capuccinos and hot chocolate. But that’s it in the way of retail. We sampled a few of the eating spots while we were there, but didn’t...

Running the FNB Joburg 10km City Run

This was the second FNB Joburg 10kmĀ road race I’ve run and I absolutely loved it! It’s definitely one of the races in Joburg that you absolutely have to experience. Yes, it’s huge and I don’t normally like the really big 10km races but it’s so worth doing. This year there were 14 000 runners that took part! That’s a lot of runners! Although it was so enormous, it was really well organised. Every runner was seeded into pens. The A-D pens left at 8am and the last 2 pens left 15 minutes later. There were a lot of arguments...
