Chrissie Wellington’s autobiography

I should have gone to Run Camp this morning, but I made the decision not to go. I felt guilty about it, but I was also feeling exhausted and was aware of how much I had to get done. I spent a busy morning at work and then came home in the afternoon to finish packing before driving up to Dorking. Why are you going to Dorking, I hear you ask… well, I’m heading off to Paphos in Cyprus tomorrow, for work 🙂 I hope there’s a chance for me to have  bit of a break whilst I’m there, as well as getting to network with lots of interesting people.

I’ll also have some time on the plane to finish reading Chrissie’s autobiography – there are so many inspirational quotes in it, including:

“When things are tough, you get tougher.”
“Pick your battles, and accept yourself for who you are.”

“Just seize every opportunity you have, embrace every experience. Make a mark, for all the right reasons.”

“…some sessions are stars and some sessions are stones, but in the end they are all rocks and we build upon them.”

I also like Chrissie’s life goals:
“To be happy with myself and always make others happy. To be confident and give others confidence in themselves. To smile, to surf, to laugh and make others laugh. To read more widely. To try to be more tolerant of my weaknesses and of others, and not to be so hard on myself all the time.”
