This year’s tally so far

I have been a bit slack in keeping up with my blog for the last few months.  That doesn’t mean that I have stopped running though.  In fact the opposite is true.  I have actually achieved quite a few goals such as: running a 10km in under 1 hour, completing my first sprint triathlon and running a half-marathon in under 2h22m.  This last goal I achieved yesterday when I ran the Swiss City Half-Marathon in Lucerne in 2h16m in the pouring rain. 

Although the year is not over yet and I still have a couple of races to go, I thought I’d publish my progress to date:


April – Zurich Marathon Team Run, 18km

May – Sihltahlerlauf, 10km

June – Frauenlauf, Bern, 10km + Alpine Half-Marathon, 21km (+ 860 m / – 330 m)

August – Greifensee Sprint Triathlon (750m swim; 20km cycle; 5km run)

September – Greifensee Half-Marathon + Pink Ribbon Charity run, 4km

October – Lucerne Half-Marathon


As someone who only took up running just under 2 years ago it shows how far even non-runners can get if they catch the running bug.


Happy running!

I am an Aussie living in Switzerland with my English husband and two lovely kids. I have recently found a new passion in life - running!!! Here I'll be sharing my journey from an unfit beginner runner to preparing for 10k runs and hopefully my goal of reaching a half-marathon. Enjoy!
