Me and my local Community- Move your mind, uplift the World.by Grace Lynch / Jul. 21, 2021
As we evolve and grow throughout life, we experience so many different communities of people. From our hometown roots to university and work communities and our sporting community, being part of something which supports you, inspires you and uplifts you to pursue your best self is something quite special. The power of a group of individuals, coming together with a common purpose can truly change the world.
The strength of passion.by Grace Lynch / Mar. 02, 2021
As we journey through life, our path interweaves with those around us. People on a similar journey to us who we meet along the way, become friends with, learn lessons from and leave us with something that makes a change as to who we are and what we believe.
Returning to Racing & Planning for 2021by Grace Lynch / Oct. 12, 2020
As I sit in my bedroom where I grew up, the reality of 2020 is that life has become a roller coaster of emotions and an overall sense of uncertainly looms around us all. With life coming to planning from day to day rather than month or year to year, it could be quite overwhelming if you begin to think about it all.
Adaptation to the Challengeby Grace Lynch / Mar. 22, 2020
Some of us may experience periods in our lives where we encounter challenges, uncertainty and fear about what the road ahead may bring. Amidst recent happenings, we as a human race have all experienced the emotions and anxieties associated with such a fear. Plans derailed, daily routines abandoned, multiple fears and anxieties coming to the fore.
Happy and Healthy in 2020!by Grace Lynch / Jan. 23, 2020
As an ASICS Frontrunner, one of our philosophies is a Sound mind in a sound body. This is certainly true. Even though we all come from different walks of life and compete at different levels in different disciplines, our love and passion for running remains constant.
LITE-SHOW™ 2 Winter Jacket Reviewby Grace Lynch / Nov. 19, 2019
As we all embark upon our first few weeks of winter training, the nights slowly become darker, the air colder and the ground softer. Whether your focus is on the roads, cross country or looking towards the outdoor season, we all face the harsh training conditions that winter brings about.
Balancing Good Habits & Personal Goalsby Grace Lynch / Jul. 10, 2019
About a month ago, I was sitting at home on the couch, after lounging there for about 5 hours watching two movies back to back. Ask anyone who knows me, Grace ??? Sitting on a couch and chilling out for more than an hour? You must have the wrong person? Is the answer you would get from everyone. Ok, granted I had got up early that morning and did my long run, yet there I was feeling a pang of guilt in my gut, because I had sat on my butt for a few hours and spent time with friends, chilling out.

Are you looking for the extra edge on race day? That little something to give you that confidence boost against your biggest rivals and competitors? Well then, look no further that the new ASICS TARTHEREDGE. The new fast and furious race shoe on the block.
Under performing and moving onby Grace Lynch / Jan. 22, 2019
The last few months of your training has been leading up to this day. You have completely dedicated yourself to your running and to being in the best possible shape physically and mentally to perform at your optimal level. Early mornings, getting up before sunrise to travel out to Cratloe woods for some miles over hilly terrain. Prioritizing ice baths and early nights in bed before late nights out and takeaways with friends. Training not only physically but mentally for this very moment.
Sustainability- It's importance in your life as a Runner.by Grace Lynch / Apr. 23, 2018
For anyone who is a runner, we know that running isn’t just an activity to keep your fitness levels up and stay in good physical condition. Running is a powerful medium where we can explore our own thoughts, test our physical and mental capabilities, find out who we really are and grown into what we never thought we could be capable of.
Consistency and Enjoyment: the secrets to success and happiness in Running.by Grace Lynch / Mar. 26, 2018
As a competitive athlete, I find I am posed quite often with a reoccurring question… What is the key to improving running performance?’. I guess in a way, there are a million answers to this one simple question, and ask me twice and I may give you a different answer. But the two main ingredients in my view are running consistency and enjoyment. These for me are the ultimate ingredients and without these, you can only get so far.
