  • So here’s a little open heart honesty for you.

A few months ago my world was rocked. From a lifetime high of my first ever World Champs to a lifetime low of returning to a changed home, my emotions have been on an endless roller coaster. 
My drug became training. But running on emotion rather then knowledge is never wise and I was quick to suffer. Five weeks later and my glute is still refusing to play ball. 
Now, stripped from distraction, my mind has become my greatest tool. And it’s a beautiful thing of that. Something that I would never have discovered if life were so easy. 
So here’s to a new me. A happier me, a more self-fulfilled me, a stronger me. Here’s to walking the streets with a clear mind and happy heart. Here’s to celebrating the human body. Here’s to creating the world we live in.
  • Here's to welcoming a new week with open arms.

Let thy be a good one.
