Yes, that’s right: After having lived here for a while we thought it was time for an upgrade. Something bigger, more personal, a place we can build a future. It was time for a move.
To be clear, I am talking about this blog. (You didn’t think I moved to a bigger house or even another country, did you?) What once started as a way to share my experiences living and working in Saudi Arabia (hence the name Ashufik, Arabic for I See You) has increasingly become a place where I share my passion for running, fitness and health in general. At the same time, I post about my life in New Zealand and as a mother of an incredibly sweet girl, who was born nearly a year ago!
While getting everything up and running on this new domain will take a little while, I already moved all my old posts, worked on the layout and fixed some photo issues. At the moment, I am changing all the links in the old posts (which would otherwise take you back to the old website). It’s a pain, I can tell you, but hopefully worth the effort.
The name of this new blog, Run Recover Relax, doesn’t need much explanation. I love running and hope to continue my passion for a long time to come, but throughout the last year or so I increasingly became aware of how important it is to recover properly and relax from time to time. After all, my ultimate goal in running is to become a fitter, healthier and happier person rather than just smashing PBs. If you have the same goal but struggle balancing workouts and healthy living with other obligations – work, being a parent/spouse/friend, keeping the house tidy, other hobbies, etcetera – I hope you will find some inspiration here.
