Wonderful races in wonderful places

November 4, 2013


Yesterday afternoon, despite a rather long-winded ‘to do’ list of client deadlines and demands, I found myself stretched out on the sofa, researching race plans for 2014. It’s something I look forward to towards the end of every year, that chance to write your wish list, to plot and plan wonderful races in wonderful places. […]

Beauty & the ‘burgh

July 22, 2013


One of my greatest joys in life is discovering a new city on foot. I’ve written about this often in the past from cities as far afield as Bangkok to Budapest, Singapore to Sydney, Lyon to Lijiang. Rising at the crack of dawn to discover crooks and explore crannies, watch day break and neighbourhoods come […]

Tai Chi-tastic

September 28, 2012


This morning I had a sweet little run around MacRitchie Reservoir, a gorgeous lush green network of trails in the heart of Singapore and just a stones throw from my sister Rosie’s house. When in this city, it’s always top of my agenda. As the sun started to shine through the thick, dense clouds and […]

Be / do / see / try / learn

September 7, 2012


I’ve never been short of people laughing at my obsession with spreadsheets. I am a very type-A daughter of a very type-A actuary after all! I have an entire folder called Spreadsheet Queen with excel sheets for pretty much every area of my life. On another note, I constantly hear comments from people asking how I […]

As published in Outdoor UAE magazine – Aug 11 … a while ago now I know but last chance to pick up this months issue of Outdoor UAE before the next fab issue graces our shelves …

Lessons from Coco

July 25, 2011


As published on A few weeks ago, LOVESTYLE divas, I competed in a 100km running race in Singapore called the Sundowner. Starting at 6pm in the heat and humidity of a city that sits slap bang on the equator, the aim is to run 50km out, 50km back and to then cross the finish […]

Singapore salutations & mindful planning

July 2, 2011


A few days ago, on my last day in Singapore, I spent a very lovely morning with my sisters and mum at yoga.  We arrived a little late, fell in the door like naughty school girls and immediately lifted the tempo in the room to all-round smiles and animated chatter. Our mats were alongside each […]

Searching for solemates

June 30, 2011


Once upon a time my choice of running shoes was determined by two key factors … the extent to which they featured pink (as well as the exact shade of said pink) and the extent to which they would match my running tops, because regardless of whether on the running track or on the catwalk, […]

Cocktails & Coco

June 26, 2011


I sit and write this from my hotel lobby in Singapore, fresh from a BBQ with my wonderful family, suitably hydrated thanks to a few chilled glasses of Cloudy Bay and looking footloose and fancy free in my favourite LBD. It’s hard to imagine already that just 24 hours ago, I was in the midst […]

From bud to bloom

May 7, 2011


A fabulous pool party last night meant I woke up without the usual spring in my step, raring to run and eager to expend energy. Instead I felt in dire need of an injection of therapy in a more luxurious setting and an opportunity to relax, rejuvenate and recharge. Enter my destination for the day […]

Kick it Forward

April 28, 2011


If you are already a runner, how many times have you had someone say to you that they would love to run but don’t know how, or that they find it really hard to get beyond their comfort zone, or that they would love to run a race but wouldn’t know where to start. Often […]
