Random Thoughts on a Friday Morning

Random Thoughts on a Friday Morning

I have a lot of thoughts tjat pop up randomly, some may not be as interesting to a reader. But they are my thoughts, my blog and my goal of just to keep writing until the act of writing becomes familiar and I can overcome writer’s block. I may not have as many readers as before, but I will be doing something I love – putting in what is in my heart into words.

Marathon Training Fatigue

Marathon Training Fatigue

Last week has been absolutely blah with regards to training. Even more so than the previous weeks.

David Tennant does a podcast with … Review

Barcelona!” The first lines that David Tennant uttered as the Tenth Doctor before collapsing, but not before heralding a new era of a lot of running and fun and angst – “MY” Doctor even though I had first loved him after watching a televised stage production of Hamlet. (If you can find a watch of this Prince in Jeans and T-Shirt, don’t miss it!) It was definitely to hear David Tennant that I…

#YouWillBeFound

#YouWillBeFound “So let the sun come streaming in‘Cause you’ll reach up and you’ll rise againLift your head and look aroundYou will be found” Have you ever felt emotionally breaking down for absolutely no reason other than a song, a song that you may have heard may times in the past without that extreme reaction? I didn’t even have this reaction on watching DEH live or when Hugh Jackman performed it so wonderfully. The song somehow found it’s way into one…
