Running from yoga October 11 2014, 4 Comments

In recent weeks, I've been running from yoga. Yep! My beloved yoga has taken a back seat to running. The reason why? I was training for Connor’s Run. A few weekends ago now I ran 9.6km in the annual running event raising much-needed funds for research, care and development into brain tumours. Connor’s Run includes an 18.8km run starting at Sandringham or a 9.6km run starting in St Kilda, both ending with a party at the boat sheds by the Yarra in Melbourne.

I don’t know about you but I was definitely NOT a born runner. I used to run around the block at school as a youngster puffing after 100m and wanting to give up! I used to look at others who seemed to run with ease and wonder how on earth they could hold a conversation while running?! I would run, struggle to chat at the same time and go beetroot red in the face, which would then (and still does) take hours to return to normal. Read the full blog post here.
