How’s your Being going?!

How are you at Being? Sometimes I’m great…sometimes I suck. That’s the nature of growth though right?! So – Being. Sounds simple and it is. BUT. When we are so focused on the other two components – doing and having, sometimes this vital component falls by the wayside. It falls by the wayside in a […]

Taking Aligned Action

Time to hop off the hamster wheel?

BE(ing)  Let’s break this sh*t down – what is Be(ing) all about? There are two components to being that I want to discuss. Holding the thoughts, beliefs and intentions that your best future self would have after she has achieved her goals – NOW. 2. Being – in the space that you allow in your […]

Doing from a place of abundance

Flowing to a 4th place finish

I read the post of a well-known sportsperson recently telling me to do more hard things and I felt exhausted at the end! I don’t want to do more, push harder, grind. My God! Why are we doing this to ourselves? What is wrong with wanting joy, connection, peace and adventure? In a world obsessed […]

How’s your reality working for you?

I’m really interested in how we create our realities, it is fundamental to what I do with my clients and the way I live my life – because my life is my work – and my work is my life. This is central to our being – the way we create our reality. Because we […]

Mistakes runners make…Compare and Despair

Mistakes runners make…Compare and Despair

We have all been here, compared ourselves to other runners and felt like total crap! Compare and despair is the pits. So why do we do it? As social creatures, we are always comparing ourselves to others.   There is the good side where we find our tribe and community and have a sense of belonging. […]

Mistakes runners make…Thinking there is some secret to success

Are you willing to do things that others aren’t willing to do? That’s what it comes down to at the end of the day, whether it’s a running goal, business or work goal, personal development goal, or even relationship goals.

Mistakes runners make…Not having consistency

Mistakes runners make…Not having consistency

Weekend warriors unite!  I was totally guilty of this when I first started trail running. I would absolutely smash myself on a massive mission on the weekend and spend the week recovering just to do it all over again. Don’t get me wrong, if that’s how you roll and you’re happy with it, go for […]

5 Reasons you should care about your mindset Tanya, I’m doing OK, why should I care about my mindset? #1. You could be sabotaging your own success.

The Three T’s of Life Transformation

I completed my degree with a double major in Psychology and Education – the Education portion solely focused on human development. But, I was struck while I completed my degree that these two social sciences while complementary, were taught from such different points of reference. Psychology was solely based on the individual and focused on […]

Ever had a group of runners together on a rainy day? no doubt someone will pipe up with ‘At least it’s not too hot!!’ I have been known in a race to be somewhat overhappy and exclaim how great the ‘nature’s staircase’ was on a particularly steep and rooty climb…my fellow runners weren’t quite sharing […]

Celebrating wins

Running on rocky diamond mountain

Revel… That’s the new word that I’ve added to my to-do list!  If you’ve been following me for a while you’ll know I love words. Intentional, audacious…I love the way words make me feel, a good word also seems to feel good to say and I think when a word resonates it has power.  So […]

Compassion on the Trails

Fiordland Traverse

So compassion might be a weird topic to write about as an athlete…but you know me, always talking about the ‘feeling things’ and the lessons learnt on the trail.
