REALISTIC Goals – February 2014

As I mentioned in last months goals the only way I am going to get to where I want to get to in 2014 is by keeping things challenging but with an emphasis on REALISTIC. I did a good job in January but things are about to get a whole lot more challenging as I […]

REALISTIC Goals, January 2014 … How Did I Do?

On January 2nd I posted my goals for the month. I spent some time reflecting on the struggles I experienced in 2013 with getting the balance right and realised REALISTIC should feature heavily in 2014. Below is a summary of how I got on … 1) Workout at the gym at least 3 times a […]

A Passport to Roam …

Yesterday I freed myself from the confines of my office to arrange a new passport. Annoyingly my old passport still had three years left to run, but I knew the remaining two blank pages would not see me through the next 3 months travel.

REALISTIC Goals – January 2014

Beautiful London …

I had a little time to really admire St Pancras train station yesterday while waiting to meet my friend for what turned out to be a long, wine fuelled fun afternoon (whoops!) St Pancras station has stunning gothic architecture both inside and out and it was really lovely to not be rushing through, head down […]

Inspiration & Perspiration …

On Sunday myself and Michael travelled up to Birmingham to enjoy an afternoon of Athletics at the Alexander Stadium. The event was the British Championships and qualification for the World Athletics Championships in Moscow later this year. We were situated in the main stand in row H. This meant we were at the 50 metre […]
