Getting back into running again

Dear blog, it’s been a month since I blogged about running. I’m happy to report that I’m getting back into running again. I haven’t been consistent at it because of late meetings at work, but I’m running. Most importantly, I’m running without pain! No pain in my feet anymore Can you abso-freaking-lutely believe it? I haven’t run without pain in 15 months! There have been a few marked changes that have made the world of difference: Michelle (the reflexologist I go to) has taught me how to strap my foot every time I run. It’s made such an enormous...

Kamersvol at St Davids Marist in Sandton

I went to Kamersvol at St Davids Marist yesterday with my sister and mom. It was soooo full! I’ve never seen the Kamersvol market so busy, and you know by now that I go every time it’s in Joburg.

We got there just after it opened, and I’m so glad we planned our day like that. When I left at lunchtime the queue to get in was miles long! I loved this stand run by...

Running in my dreams

I feel so unfit. I feel like a sloth. I feel like I’ve been only running in my dreams. I’m determined to get off my bum and start training properly again. From tomorrow. Meh. I cannot tell you how many times I’ve said that in the last few weeks, but I haven’t got anywhere. Work has been insane, and I’m struggling to get to RWFL for the sessions. My foot is also still giving me hell whenever I run. And on top of all that I’ve got one excuse after another. But this has to change. I’ve got a...

3 steps to make your Facebook profile less public

As you know I work in social media and I come across people (friends and colleagues) every day who don’t realise just how public their data on Facebook is. Not only that, but most people have no idea where the their privacy settings are. So, it’s about time I wrote about making your Facebook profile less public to help you all out a bit. Rule number one of using Facebook should be that you need to explore the settings sections regularly. Facebook changes the settings options very often and you unwittingly make things very public that you want only...
