Hi I'm Leonie, Collector of feathers, pebbles, words and adventures, with an overactive mind and a sunshine-filled heart.

This blog is all about: NATURE ~ RUNNING ~ ART ~ FOOD ~ LOVE ~ SELF-DISCOVERY

Can't stop won't stop

I love running. This is odd, because I am most definitely not a sporty person. However I've recently realised that what always held me back from participating in sports was the fear of letting my team members down. So, now that I've given a solitary sport a go, I love it. There is no possibility of letting anybody else down or being a disappointment, and the certainty of that has enabled me to push myself further than I thought I could go.

In two days, I'll be running 21.1 kilometres, my longest run to date. My training has taken me 18 kilometres so far - so with adrenaline, luck and the right fuel I reckon I'm set to kick ass at the Sydney Running Festival on Sunday.

Also, one of the great things about racing is that you get a cool running bib number that can be recycled into art journalling! Here are the pages from my journal covering this year's City to Surf in Sydney and the Blacktown Running Festival 10k

I've also realised that for distance runs of 10km+, store-bought super processed energy gels and drinks just don't agree with my tummy, so I have created my own clean whole food energy gel which I'll share the recipe for in my next post.
