Breiddens Fell Race. On the Welsh border, this race was about 11 km with around 650 m of climbing. Great views up on the top as the clouds set in with a mixture of rocky fell and woody trails. Standard fell race throwing yourself over a gate and barbed wire, protected by some aptly placed carpet! After a major set back at Grisedale back at the start of September, I’m slowly coming back, taking care of myself! First proper run in a month after a hilarious run of luck in terms of illness. It’s been pretty tough without my running but I’m getting back to it and am enjoying my new @scottrunning kicks gifted by RunRepeat 🙏🏻 and @torqfitness fuelling me! #torqfuelled

Our weekend in Wales - sunny, then extremely cloudy and rainy, quite boozy but overall fantastic! Took my brother for a few hikes as well ⛈️👍🍻😃

From the event of my previous post I learnt a lesson. Sometimes we choose a path to follow... But somewhere in the middle the target started to fade away... We may think of it as impossible. It becomes hard to be focused. It's the moment when we give up. But we shouldn't. We have to go further... We have to go on. Keeping aside all the negativity we need to be focused. It's the hurdle we need to overcome to become success.

Does anyone else feel at ease around water?
I miss summer and the hidden beauty in Ontario.
Been taking some time to further explore our home on the East Coast, and I’m super happy to say I finally was able to complete the Cliff Walk in Newport, Rhode Island! The walk encompasses a large part of the rocky coastline of Newport, and is broken up with views of the glamorous mansions of the early 1900’s. The walk is absolutely stunning, and if you have the chance to visit Rhode Island you can’t miss it! •
Happy Thanksgiving to all my Canadian friends! Here's how I would caption each of these photos...
1. Feeling like a badass in my @woolrich and the hat I knit myself 😎
2. Nathan! Get the dog out of the shot I don't want him in here!
3. Hello bitchez, I'm fabulous. 💁🏼♀️
If you want to live a happy life, tie it to a goal, not to people or things
🇬🇧Here's another picture of that beach so you can see how close the forest and the beach were here. 🇪🇸Aquí tenéis otra foto de la playa para que podáis apreciar lo cerca que estaba el bosque de la playa.

Throughout my time at Havasupai, I was able to consistently practice thought awarenes; observe my stream of consciousness, and identify the reasons behind my behaviors and reactions. This was possible because of the subtle obstacles and advantages Havasu provided. It's a humbling reminder how the land and its elements can easily shape our perception of reality while challenging our points of views, forcing us to extend and widen our thoughts and way of thinking.
Our thoughts have a powerful impact on the way we behave, react, and make decisions on a daily basis. This may sound like common sense, but remember that common sense may not always be common practice. Therefore, I challenge you to practice thought awareness, ask yourself why you're reacting or behaving a certain way the next time you're faced with an obstacle, both positive and negative ones. Then, ask yourself how you can turn any of those situations into a learning experience.
