Thanks to  Worthatri for nominating me a CHERRY ON THE TOP AWARD, much appreciated and touched, I am not great at this tagging thing but I will give it a try.

Now I ain't going to lie there are plenty of things I would love to change,but I am who I am due to my experiences so I accept them all good and bad.

Health wise I would go back and slap that 14 year old kid who thought it was smart to pick up a cigarette and smoke on and off for the next ten or so years. I regret that, I thought it was cool, thought I looked great and did not think about the health implications. It has been a good number of years since I stopped smoking, although I have back slided on a number of occasions,  I would never, ever, ever smoke again, it's no longer part of my character, anyway anything that would hinder my running is a no go these days

Now I was supose to choose 6 people to give this award to, I choose

Clare michelle, a great photographer and poet, a new but dear friend

Rob aka Sloetry who is also a great poet and photographer

GREEDS, a great poet who writes great blogs.

Comfort a great poet and now also a runner after completing her first ever 5k yesterday,

ASK WIFEY, who writes a wonderful blog on running, being a wife and a mother, I can assure you I am taking notes!

I would've tagged some more runners but those who I would've chosen have been blogged already. I have not been great at this tagging thing in the past, but I promise I will try better in the future.

Happy running and writing peeps.

Thanks again Worth a tri for giving me that award, much appreciated.

I love running Kat


  1. Thanks for stopping by my blog! Congrats on your half--I love the way you write. Brings back memories as I lived in the UK for a few years...wish I were more of a runner then!

  2. thank you for my cherry on top award! you know with everything going on i'm feeling very low on energy and tired, but from the support and love from you and people back home i'm already feeling recharged. you're an inspiration girl! don't stop running! (and i'm taking a page from your no smoking book... it's been 2 days already lol)
    much much love and much much light girl!

  3. Oh I never thought about smoking when I wrote mine, actually that's the one thing I'd change too! So glad I kicked the habbit too :-)

  4. Teammarcia, I love reading your blog and am very inspired by your achievements.

    Clare, your welcome darling, 2 days no smoking thats where it all begins, good luck, it's a hard habit to get rid of, but it can be done.

    Laura, such a bad habit I know but yaaah to kicking it, I'm quite disgusted with myself for even staring to smoke in the first place, hows that song go "IF I COULD TURN BACK TIME." If only!

  5. Yep, I kicked that habit too! Running has made my decision a sealed deal. Never going back :)
    Good for you for quitting!

  6. Hey Angie, you too wow, I'm with you on that running has also sealed my decision, good on you for quitting too, not easy but so necessary. Take care.

  7. From one former smoker to another former smoker - thanks for quitting and for the award! I appreciate the mention and kind words!
