Keep running, running and running, running

A clear blue excuses!!!

I am now on the downhill slide to my 12km fun run and am terribly unprepared!! My world has been one big juggle and the ball that always gets dropped is training time. That said I am determined to do this run and I will....Anyway I thought I might share a few of my training sights and my training buddies that keep me going (You have to sing to this one - let me hear you....loud and proud)
The lake that divides...This one splits Avoca into two distinct areas Avoca & North Avoca.

As I start my run Michael and I are getting 'Elegantly Wasted' with the rest of INXS. Such a good track to find your rhythm to. We run, we hide, we want the good life...I want the good life too Michael!

JT kicks me into gear by telling me he's bringing sexy back.I reply Yeeaahh them other boys don't know how to act..take it to the chorus JT. I will be getting my sexy out after the run, thanks anyway..

Meredith Brooks makes me smile as 'Bitch' belts out of my ipod, I hate the world today!!!!
I'm a little bit of everything all rolled into one - I'm with you Meredith, cause I'm nothing in between either.
Take me as I am, this may mean you'll need to be a stronger man....I am singing out loud to this one. Go the girls!!

Tone Loc keeps me going with wild thing. Love the start 'Lets do it' - I'm with you Tone....I'm doing it. 80's tragic I know.

The Cat Empire makes me want to salsa to 'fishies', dance, dance, dance oh should be run, run, run. It gives me my second wind...Welcome fishies to my hook.
The shoes that will take me there

The Cruel Sea's 'Honeymoon is over' gives me strength and power....I won't let you cook for me baby its never gonna get that far....
hey it ain't no fun no more, I don't know what to say the honeymoon is over baby it's never gonna be the same again. Yeah!!!

George Michael sings 'I won't let you down, I will not give you up' on Freedom 90 - Me neither Michael, stay with me.
Princes 'Raspberry Beret' - the kind you find in a second hand store kicks me along. I want one of those too and if it was warm I might not wear much more either!! (need to click up a few more k's for that though).

Robbie Williams and I have 'come undone' - Robbie tells me 'if I keep lying then I'd just disappoint you' - I don't think so Robbie, keep singing for me baby...

Santana and Rob Thomas give me some Latin groove in 'smooth' - give me your heart, make it real or just forget about it. Another track I want to dance to but push on through and keep running.

All roads lead to ...the beach

Just a few of my friends that help me through my run..


  1. Fabulous photos Lise.. I love the one with the mangroves and reflection...

    You know it seems half of blog land is running marathons at the moment,. credit to you!! I was a bit of a cross country buff at school and now can't run for the bus.. hahaha... Good for you .. keep running.. and love that George Michael's song!!! Freedom!!!

    Thanks for your lovely comment.. xx Julie

  2. Thanks Julie. I love that photo too! I asked my 12 y/o daughter if she liked it and her reply was 'No, it's ugly!'. Well I did ask and beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

    I guess half of blog land is coming into summer, that always gets people moving. I on the other hand can't train in the heat and have my eye on a fun run.
