29.7.2016 by Katherine Kelly

Well done everyone – you made it!

Last week we had a blast at the Diane Modahl Sports Foundation (DMSF) graduation. The kids were here in full swing and there was lots of celebrating to be done – drums were banged (literally), grads got graduated, and the…

On Track for Success

20.7.2016 by Katherine Kelly

Running has about a million benefits; it’s free, you can work on your tan (if you’re running on a sunbed), it’s great for your health, it clears the mind, and there are clear links between sporting prowess and business success. Okay well…
