Running is not just about running, or so I am finding out. Having spent most of the past 6 years fretting about my training and getting that PR a new horizon has opened up for me. I call it giving back!
November 6, 2014. One of the worst days and best days of my life. Funny how that happens. I was on top of the world. I was the strongest and fastest I have ever been. I had just completed my second Boston qualifier at the Chicago marathon. As a runner, the last thing you want to hear is a doctor telling you you are being sidelined for the next 12 weeks. A tibial stress fracture was the diagnosis. A diagnosis that forced me to find other ways besides running to keep my cardio fitness in check. But, on the same note when I look back on this date, I would never have become a triathlete unless I got injured, forced to rest, and take a break from running.
“Better to have and not need than to need and not have.”
Great advice my dad has always told me and on May 7th, 2016 I wish I had heeded these words.
Our Mermaid Club Ambassador, Karen, reflects on her New York City Marathon experience and shares three very important lessons that all mermaids should adhere to!
What do you do to round out a brilliant second year for The Mermaid Club? The answer, we thought, was simple. We held the second International Mermaid Day on September 6th 2015. Thanks to you, it was so successful that we will repeat it again next year. Coz why not right?

Melbourne Marathon Festival 2013 was the race where my distance running aspiration, passion & motivation was born… The place I dared myself to dream big!
This weekend I headed down to the shore for my second running of the Atlantic City Half Marathon – and I couldn’t be happier! Considering I tore my ACL at Mile 12 the last time I raced it back in 2012, just crossing the finish line with both knees intact was a win.
This year The Mermaid Club was proud to announce the first ever International Mermaid Day! (Sept 7th, 2014) Yeah Mermaids are so damn cool and badass that we deserve our own special day. Coz why not?! To celebrate this inaugural event, TMC partnered with the Make-A-Wish® Southern Florida and hosted a virtual 5k run, swim or bike event to raise some funds for this wonderful and inspiring charity! Because that how us Mermaids roll.
