Runnin’

running1

Confession:  My life has been out of whack the whole year.  I was working ridiculous hours for a company who couldn’t find a f#$k to give about the ridiculous hours I was working.  I wasn’t loving my job & I wasn’t really loving my life anymore.

So I changed my life.

Resigned from said company.

And started Runnin again ….

I don’t know about you but I need to run or play basketball or be doing SOMETHING physical to maintain some balance in my life.

I saw the Sports Fan Journal guys were doing a Run challenge but their cut off for joining was the 30th of June so missed out on that one BUT about 3 months ago I did the Nike ‘She Runs AKL’ 10km challenge with my sister Leilani of Lani Says & I kind of forced myself to do a bit of running so I didn’t die running the 10km at the end lol!  I didn’t really follow the programme properly last time so after deciding to change my life I thought I’d get back at it like a crack addict & follow the Nike ‘She Runs AKL’ Run programme again and this time try to stick to it as much as possible.

When I started running a couple of the guys (Johnson & Feleti) said they’d join in too so if you’re in the Mangere or Mangere Bridge area and want to join in – holla at me one time or if you just need a running programme to follow – here’s the She Runs AKL run programme:

If you have a Smart Phone you’ll need to download the Nike Run app which you can find here (or search for it in the app store on your phone)

And the Nike Training Club app which you can find here  (or again you can search for it in the app store on your phone)
