Fitter & Faster

The Sun shone once again on my tropical island, so that meant it was time to get on the beach again. This morning wasn’t the greatest weather wise so I hit the pool with a 1miler non stop, completed that in about 24 minutes. Not my fastest, but not bad considering I haven’t swam in […]

Summer Holidays

Today’s the start of a new month, and for me that means my summer holidays! What a cracker of a day to start them off with too. Temperatures peaked at around 25C on Arran. Lots of people asked me if I was going anywhere when I was off, I just said nope, don’t need to! […]

Chasing my dream

The other night while I was on my walk home I glanced up at the sky to see a Boeing 747 just skim through the clouds above the hills. What a sight, if only I had a zoom lens for my Nikon d600!   Then a second later, the distinctive sound of the Jumbo echoed […]

Sand Running – Barefoot

There’s many benefits to running on the beach in barefoot. It’s natural, fresh sea air, sunshine (hopefully!), freedom and its a workout like no other. As with everything you have to ease into it, your feet might not be accustomed to running or walking with out shoes so might be a little sensitive, espcially when […]


Be Fearless

Some people find a way to create their own luck, it’s these people that are successful. A scary hunger to succeed in whatever endeavor they seek. It’s time to revive that hunger in myself, chase my dreams! People often forget what they are good at… what their strengths are and focus too much on their […]
