Caught Rake-Handed


Kate is from Sydney, Australia, and fell in love with running in 2012 when she decided, for no particular reason that she can remember, to run a marathon. That one goal turned into a love affair with running that keeps her sane during the day, and fuels the blog at night.

    I’m careful what I write about my husband. He doesn’t mind his name or pictures, but he doesn’t like when I get too personal about the part of my life that concerns him. So, I respect his wishes.

    I love your finish line faces! They always make me laugh. I did a half marathon last weekend, but it was just for training. My goal race is next weekend in La Jolla. I’ll see if I can beat your finish line face :-) .

    I used to get really excited about race expos (and spend a lot of money at them), but after a while, they all seem the same. I still love to do a little shopping though.

      I think there are certain things that just need to be left off the blog, but sometimes the line does get a bit blurry – especially when you other half isn’t quite as open on the net!

      I am really looking forward to seeing how La Jolla goes – I know you’ve been working towards it for a long time. I hope you’re enjoying the distance again :-) .

    Mr, The Rake cracks my stuff up. I always wonder when I start dating guys how to bring up the by the way I am a blogger thing.

      I think you have to slip it in quietly – like ‘oh yeah, I occasionally blog a bit, just fitness stuff’ and then wait until someone calls and asks for them by their pseudonym. Should be good ;-)

    ahhh!! mr the rake. of course he is famous! (atleast in my world!!) that’s too funny though, my dear. your stories kill me. I haven’t been to an expo, but I think it would be so fun! I love the description of the guys there. hahaha! best of luck with your race, love!!

    • Kate

      Oh I miss my Daily Smile! Tell me you have plans in that area?

  • Nancy Guillery

    Oh my God 2 half marathons in two days?! You’re crazy!! Then again I’m doing a charity relay race from Montreal, Canada to New York City across 3 days….82+kms over 3 days….2 marathons in 3 non-stop days ( day and night)… So I guess we’re both crazy! :-) best of luck! Can’t wait to read all about it.

    • Kate

      Argh, no, 2 in a week. 2 Days sounds a little much…actually, it kind of sounds like fun. And ja, a charity relay race like that sounds intense!

    Your finish line photos are just as sexy as mine! I go for a ‘just about to pass out zombie meets heart attack victim’ look myself. You are certifiably crazy for running back to back half marathons, which means you automatically get set in the uppermost echelons of runner goddesses. I hope you had a wonderful second half marathon Miss Kate.
    My last half marathon was the Cadbury Half in January, and my next will be in July at the Gold Coast. I am hoping to just finish the Gold Coast after I get these silly lungs working again. Then, I’ll set myself a challenge for my next race :)

    He forever cracks me up. I was just tagged in some erm…beautiful race finishing shots. Always cute shots…back to back halves? You are the bomb! I wanted to do that actually (as my favorite is actually roday and I’m running Nike next week) but decided my wallet and I could not afford that sort of thing plus travel.

      Yeah, travel never helps. This second one was local, so it was all good!

    Lurrrrrrve the finish line face! Classic.

    Oh Mr The Rake. It sucks to be famous!!! But I bet he wont complain one day when he retires off your blog. Maybe its time he breaks out into his own “buffy/angel” style. I am pretty sure is free :=)

    Hope you had a blast at expo and it pumped you up for your awesome half and you are recovering well today :=)

      Oh yes – he did start a blog once. But he made it drunk and never could remember the password.
