Walking the Women's Mini Marathon 3 June 2018

Over 50 & Walking the 10 Km Mini Marathon
Getting older doesn't mean you have to be a couch potato (unless you're sick or out of action for any reason). Two years ago I could barely walk 2 km, and if I did it'd take 50mins to 1hr 10 mins.
Now I completed 10 Km. Yes sore but it's so thrilling to achieve something you've worked so hard for.
Age shouldn't be a barrier despite what some people think that we should go grey and step into the shade.

Building up Walking Strength

Soaking my feet during the Killiney beach walk!
Good to see you here, especially if you're in midlife or know someone who is and needing a boost to prove to you that we don't have to fade into the background once we hit menopause and beyond. These days us women may spend a third of our lives or more in post-menopause. The norm used to be stepping back and fade out of earshot. Well, I've always believed that as long as there is breath in me and I am at my optimal health at any given time it is my purpose to grab life and live it to my best ability.

Prepping for Walking the Women's Mini Marathon

preparing for women's marathon

The VHI Women's Mini-Marathon is on the June bank holiday this year in Dublin. For the first time in my life I will be walking it. The fact I'm doing so is a huge achievement, brought about by my persistence, my husband's support, my friend's undying belief that I wasn't as sick as some others wanted me to believe. We plotted a way through the negativity and thanks to the help of my talented physiotherapist we are aiming for me to be fit enough to complete the marathon in less than 2 hours.

For the "Nearly Mums" Today

A few thoughts for the "nearly" Mums today

Posted on 30th March 2014, updated photos 8 March 2018

Another Mother's Day dawns today. For the last couple of weeks I had promised, swore to, myself that I'd avoid the internet like the plague today. Before two weeks ago though my plan from last year was to have a gorgeous blog post all about the 'Irish Mammies' and celebrate the day in a flourish of happiness. As those of you who know me are aware I lost a child in 2000 through miscarriage and last November I found out my mother had left us all.

International Women's Day 2018

International Women's Day 2018
Behind this woman here is a strong man. I wouldn’t be who I am without the love & support of one of the most courageous men in the world. 

It’s easy to knock men these days, not all are bad. Without the love of my life I wouldn’t be here to celebrate International Women’s Day 2018. 

When I lost my kidneys in my 20s my so-called women friends didn’t want to know. I no longer fitted in.
