Well, it’s not the “race report” that I planned, but it was an experience nonetheless. Forced to forfeit my entry this year due to total shit circumstances/injuries I don’t want to get into yet, I was faced with two choices. ONE: stay at home and throw a pity party for myself or TWO: go, and volunteer. So, I emailed the kind folks at Metasport and bing bang boom, before you know it, I was signed up to help the race expo, swim start and medical crew!! Long ass days, gosh, I have a whole new appreciation for the folks that not only organize but volunteer their time to help athletes have a better experience. I was exhausted after each day! Haha. But, I won’t lie, it was not where I wanted to be - I would much rather be on the other side, racing - but I think it’s where I needed to be. At the swim start, I stayed behind at medical on the beach until the very last swimmer got out of the water. Yeah the guys exiting the water were damn impressive at 25mins.... but the ones that were running to make the swim cutoff minutes before the deadline and the pure joy on their face when I told them they made it, it’s unreal. And I cried!! It was so emotional!! As was when we also had to tell people they missed the cutoff. Only two, thank goodness - and since I’m an emotional person to begin with, thank god, that was not my job! Haha. Then, I made my way to medical tent where I spent the rest of the day, except to pop out and give a quick cheer to my friends running the race. Soooo, used today as an opportunity to give back to the triathlon community that has given me so much the past 2 years. I’m still upset... BUT, I guess if you can’t race, it’s the next best thing! Thank you @metasport_sg for such a lovely experience volunteering on the other side of the line today. So humbling. And rewarding. And to the folks that rocked @ironman703bintan - way to kill it!!!!! #ironmantraining #ironmom #momlife #triathletelife #trilife #tri365 #humansoftriathlon #triathletesofinsta  #triathlete #volunteering #love

At least once in your life, leave everything behind and help those in need. You will learn to have more compassion for the pain of others.  You will find that there are many more reasons to live. You will forget about the exterior mirror and learn to appreciate the interior mirror.  You will live lightly and will no longer try to find explanation for everything that happens in your life. 🙏🏻🌺🕉💚 #nepal #kathamandu #monks #volunteering #lamagangchenrinpoche #lamamichelrimpoche #albagnanohealingmeditationcentre #ngalso #peacefulthoughts #tibetanbuddhism #daybyday #brarish #travelbook #passportready #getyourbag #picoftheday #gypsysoul #livealifeyouwillremember #trip #memories #positivity #goodvibes #packandgo #citizenoftheworld #herethereeverywhere  #bpetittie

Some lovely updated pictures of the beautiful Susie! We are full to the brim right now so we are struggling to make the space that  Susie needs as an only cat in a household. She will thrive with room her own room to be herself so we are looking for a home with no other pets, and ideally no young children. She's approximately 4 years old, vaccinated and neutered and ready to go to her forever home. Could you be Susies new best friend? 😍
T&Cs and adoption fees apply. 💚 🐈

We receive so many donations of items to sell in our shops and we are so grateful for every one of them. Currently, we are looking for eagle eyed volunteers to assist at our donation centre, helping to sort through these items and help us to spot those things that we can ask a bit more for. If you're a label loving, trend spotting, fashionista, apply at: sthelena.org.uk/volunteer #StHelena #Hospice #HospiceShops #ShopForStHelena #StHelenaShops #Volunteer #Volunteering #Sorting #Clothes
