Real Womens Duathlon

I really love this photo. It's 3 generations of my family. My sister Deb, my niece Chrissy, my other sister Shaz, my mum Elizabeth and me just after completing a 3.5km run (or walk for some of us), 10km bike and another 1.5km run/walk. It was a first time for all of us and I had hoped to do it in an hour and a half at best. And I did it in 1 hour, 14 minutes and 26 seconds!! Am very very pleased with myself. Actually I think we all beat the times we were aiming at which is just amazing! Who knew we had it in us.

I'm planning at this stage to do it again next year and try and do it in under an hour but it's a long way off so no promises!

ps did I mention I got the fastest of us all too?? Yes I beat the youthful (16 year old) Chrissy! Ok it was by 10 seconds by I'm stoked!! Must be still something good in me after all my self loathing!!

Kiwi Cakes

I found this site last night that sells awesome tins and cookie cutters etc. If anyone feels like it I'd love a voucher from this site!! Such cool stuff and it's NZ too so things like NZ shaped and pukeko cookie cutters. Love it!

Great post on depression

Found this post on a blog on the Stuff website. Not sure why I think it's so good. Have a read. Definitely identify with her and it's so good seeing "celebrities" or people in the media speaking about it in such a recognisable way.

Self Portrait

It appears my sisters are doing something about self portraits and so I will join in the trend with mine. This is me:

I'm home sick. I've had a headache for almost 2 weeks now. Have worked through most of it but today was just too much so I am at home in our beautiful bed just sleeping and reading and eating chocolate. My wonderful flatmate even went and got me fish and chips for tea so no need to cook for us.

And before my millions of readers start suggesting things like drinking water, sleeping, taking this medication and me...after 2 weeks of this I have tried it all!!

Also, just a suggestion, don't google image search headaches! Seriously the second image you see is just awful! That's not a headache! That's a serious face injury!
