Once upon a time I was a full-on gym junkie. Before kids, I was at the gym doorstep every weekday morning at 5.30am without fail. Weights, cycle & step classes were my therapy. Then kids came along and exercise became more sporadic, I lost my mojo for it, and yes often it fell to the back of the priority queue as the demands of mum-life took over.
But something has happened in the last few months - I've become a runner. I started jogging with a few friends once a week - we started with the 5km Park run course on Tamborine Mountain and I just about died doing those early runs! I switched to running on the road/pathways not long after that (my ankles dont cope with trail runs) and I was hooked! And now I spend lots of time thinking about my next run, reading up on improving my endurance and speed, and any spare cash I have is being forked out on running gear.
Earlier this year I was talked into doing a 10km event (on Sunday the 3rd March) and now I'm even thinking about signing up for a half marathon later in the year!
I've been bitten by the running bug - and I'm loving it, its so nice to have a sporty hobby again and something to train towards!
How much fun are beach photo shoots?? Its been a little while since my last beach session but it was well worth the wait :) Toni organised this photo shoot from her home base in Sydney to coincide with an extended family holiday on the Gold Coast. And even though the sun was playing hide and seek that afternoon, we all had an absolute blast running around on the beach and chasing the kids around.
"We booked Hilary for a family photo shoot (13 people including 8 adults & 5 kids under 7).
We are from interstate & Hilary was very easy (& punctual) to deal with through the whole process from booking to receiving our images.
The family had been a bit apprehensive about getting any good photos with all of the young children, but everybody felt at ease with Hilary & she got some fantastic shots for us.
Thank you Hilary for capturing some beautiful shots that our family can treasure for years to come."
Thank you guys for sharing a fun afternoon with me!
