Ten Things Friday


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 love this!! my best run was when i finally hit 7 miles and didnt even know it! i love to run in the morning. NEVER at night. three words to describe my running are slow, steady, and easy going. i won’t run outside when it’s really hot and muggy or storming. im not signed up for any races currently. my quirky habit really isnt quirky, but i always pray on my runs, and ive never been injured from running except one time when i tripped and fell over myself and completely demolished my knee! it was full of rocks and pavement. SO attractive! hahaha!

      Surprise mileage is the best! Especially when no-one tells you until later. I love your three words to run – that sounds like the perfect combination of technique, pace and enjoyment. xx

    That is an awesome 10K time :) . That’s one of my favorite distances to train for and race too, so I hope mine drops a bit with all the half marathon training I’ve been up to. I love Cait’s blog and twitter too, after all that is how I found yours!

    My best run… good question. Don’t really have a best, but I ran a 10K and PRed (50:18), and the second half I thought about how the kids I coached had finished their 5K and were waiting on me, that kinda pushed me through it!

    I Love it!! Congrats on the 10km time. Add a little bit of speed work in there and you’ll drop that no problem!

    Awesome girl!!! Best run ever….when I ran 12 miles at a 9:45 pace…I haven’t done it since lol (I’m slow normally). Three words that describe my running…slow, steady, focused. Go to running outfit…running skirt, cute shirt, compression socks. Quirky habit while running…I can’t keep my thumbs down! Definitely a morning runner. I won’t run outside when it’s super hot. Worst injury…IT Band hip issues…got over it with lots of rolling and rest. Felt like a badass runner when…I lost my first toenail lol! Next race is…local half marathon on Sept. 30th! Potential running goal for 2013…to run a relay! Thanks! That was fun!!! Have a great weekend girl!!!

      I love your running skirts! IT is an awful injury :-( . And the foam rolling hurts like nothing else.

      Haha! I’d suggest not :-P . I was a cranky pants runner this morning – MOVE people with dogs taking up the whole path. Is it really that hard?!

      Lol! The best thing about the Rake’s photography is that he always gets the most ridiculous moments,and then doesn’t let on that they’re ridiculous – I just roll with it.

      Thanks Cait xx

    Best run ever? Charleston Half marathon – Felt great the whole time
    Three words that describe your running? right now: nonexistant, sad, healing/normally: slow, steady, happy!
    Your go-to running outfit? black Lulu crops with pockets for my phone & keys, Mizuno Wave Creations, any top
    Quirky habit while running? I sing along to some songs without realizing it
    Morning, midday, evening? Evening after work, morning on weekends
    I won’t run outside when it’s snowing!
    Worst injury—and how you got over it. Facing it right now, start PT next week. However, I was out for 3 months from Jan- April and that was lots of rest,
    I felt most like a badass mother runner when I hit that runner’s high where I feel like I could go on forever, or I pass someone who looks in way better shape then me. Eat my dust skinny chick!
    Next race is was MCM October, but defer until next year. I have Charleston half in Dec paid for so hoping to be back for that.
    Potential running goal for 2013? Complete MCM and maybe do a tri.

      Yep, that injury question is not so ‘looking back’ for you. I love your Lulu and Mizuno addictions. I think Mizuno are not Kate-feet-happy shoes, but I definitely want to find my nearest Lulu – it recently hit Oz. And by ‘better shape’ you mean ‘stick insect’ right? Lady, you are in hella good shape.
