My inspiration doesn't come from the realm of elites. My inspiration comes from family.
I'm writing five sessions and nearly two full weeks into Buzzfeed's four week '0-5k' plan having run 5km... twice!
As soon as I agreed to do this thing, I knew I needed a proper training plan. I'd heard of the 'couch to 5K' plan, but I happened to stumble across a plan on Buzzfeed.
I have signed up to do the Cardiff 10K in September, raising money for Kidney Wales.
I've loved photography for a long, long time. So for this post, I decided to take a quick scan of my phone gallery and pick out a handful of my favourite photos.
You won't become happy unless you take things into your own hands. And that's what I realised.
I didn't get a Valentine's Day gift for my wife, nor a card. I didn't buy her heart-shaped chocolates in a heart-shaped box. I didn't buy a giant teddy with "I love you" stitched into it. I didn't buy her any sexy lingerie. I didn't buy her flowers. I didn't book a table in a romantic restaurant. I didn't book a night away in a romantic hotel.
Now, officially a quarter of a century old, it's time to look ahead at what I want to 25 to be like.
I relax, but I almost never completely switch off. The things I do to relax actually keep my mind pretty active because I like to do things that engage and challenge me.
It's my birthday next weekend. I've got less than a week until I turn 25, so I thought I'd look back at the past 51 weeks of being 24.
