Honesty

Why I Have Been Seeing a Therapist

, ,
I am honest. You know that. I know that. I am proud to say that honesty and transparency came from my grandma, or nanny as I used to call her. Nanny Muir was the toughest person I knew, and she always told you the truth. Like that time she told me my legs were chubby…

Are You Too Slow To Be A Runner?

,
Previously I have posted Do You Look Like a Runner? Nothing I said in there was particularly profound, but it really hit home with a lot of people, and I can see why. This is still a big issue for almost all of us. Even those of us who are confident with our bodies for…

Do You Look Like a Runner?

During the my time with the Running4Real community, I sometimes lead talks about nutrition, and after I had finish the basics about nutrition, I have the question in my mind to talk about body image. Most of the time we end up having a fantastic discussion about body image, and how most runners believe they…

Letting go of Perfection

I have spent time on the podcast making sure things are correct. I have been looking at many new projects I have lined up, do they make sense? Are people going to like them? Or am I just rambling on again? I spent time getting images together and editing them to make sure they fit…

The Week That Could Have Changed It All

Last weekend I thought about writing an update post. I was trying to get ahead with my blogging as we had a busy week planned, and we are heading up to Michigan City this weekend (CAKE and CATERING TESTING! EEEKKK!). On Sunday night, I created a new post, and began to think about what I…

Life as a British Elite Runner in America

First….a little background Most of you know that I work full time for Runners Connect (UPDATE: I stopped working for Runners Connect in March 2017.) That is a little different to a lot of runners at my level, as American elites are able to dedicate their a larger chunk of their time to chasing down those running…

Life as the Significant Other of an Elite Runner

If the title didnt give it away, I did not write this post, it was written by Steve. I did not give him any  pointers of what to write. If you can believe it, I did not tell him to write any of this, and I have edited it minimally. My edits are in italics…

Be Brave, Be Strong, Be You!

I have talked about this a few times now; my Find Your Strong post, and my Weight Fluctuations post. I also had a guest post from Becca about her struggles with overcoming her eating disorder. I said it before, and I am gonna say it again; I think things are changing. I think the dawn of…

Weight Fluctuations for Elite Athletes

I think you know by now that I eat healthy meals. I think you also know that I like my sweets. I often struggle to keep my sweet tooth under control, and there is a reason my blog started off being called Insatiable Sweet tooth. That being said, this post is not about my sweets,…

The Elite Experience- Chicago Marathon 2014

Thank you so much for all the positive feedback on my post on about the race. I was hesitant to put it up as it was SO long, and thought it may get boring, but it seemed like everyone enjoyed reading my raw, emotional response to the race. The feedback was so wonderful, and makes…

A Real Life Story of Self Doubt

I am writing this post at a time I am feeling weak. I know I am not weak, and I know it is a sign of strength that I am able to share my feelings, and especially if I do release this post, it will show my courage to put myself out there. I hope…
