Two years have passed since the birth of Tashi Skervin.com. What was once a small corner on the internet to recall all my ramblings and musings has become a brand and a project that I am proud of, and I feel so humbled to have you reading my blog today.
Even though my blog is still growing, I kind of feel like it’s a part of my identity. It’s the first thing I talk about when I meet someone new. It’s one of my proudest achievements and it has given me so many opportunities. I have crossed paths with some of the most beautiful personalities and my blog has also help me to carve out a career.
When I first started writing and creating content for my blog, I didn’t think that two years later I’d still be very much in love with blogging and the digital world. Actually, I probably love it more so now than I have ever done before. I still feel excited when a brand tells me that they would like to work with me. I feel excited every time I publish a new post
What excites me the most is when you tell me that my words made you laugh, smile or learn something new.
I couldn’t have done this without you. Thank you for taking time out of your world to step into mine. Thank you for all of the times you’ve read, liked, commented or shared a piece of content that I have created. Thank you for inspiring me every single day and for your continual support.
I am excited to see what happens next with my blog, especially since I’m now evolving my blog to bring more frequent and creative content. I want to do more with YouTube. I want to share more of my running with you and I want to take you on a journey with me as I explore and discover the world, one trip at a time.
Thank you for sticking with me.
Here’s to two more, followed by another two years and then some.
Love always, T x
The autumn and winter seasons are without a doubt my favourite time of year. It’s everything from the burnt orange leaves that litter the floor to the crisp blue skies that can be seen shortly after dawn. These seasons are filled with so many magical moments but they can sometimes be detrimental to my health and fitness routine. It’s hard to wake up and workout when the sky is still black. And sometimes it’s hard to eat healthy when all I want to do is eat bread, a loaf of bread… just give me all the bread! My wedding falls just after the New Year so this year I’m focusing on keeping my skin and body in optimum condition. Here a few fitness and health tips to help keep you on track during the winter season. It’s much easier than you think.
As I write this blog post I can’t help but smile. The Amsterdam half marathon has left a handprint on my heart. I’d completed my first half exactly 7 days before I took to Amsterdam but this race was different. On the outside looking in, not much had changed. My pace was identical to the previous race but I felt different when I crossed the finish line. Last week I was in pain, this time I felt overwhelmed with a huge sense of relief.
Running a half marathon is probably one if the biggest mental and physical challenges that I have had to face thus far. It required commitment and relentless dedication, especially when an old injury began to resurface on race day. I wanted to quit but I was 3 miles from home and nothing was going to stop me crossing the finishing line. The fighting spirit that I saw on race day has taught me a lot about myself and what I’ve learned about life on my journey to running my first half.
10 years has passed since I first visited Berlin and as expected, a lot has changed. What I once remembered to be a gothic looking city that was a little bit behind in the terms of fashion, style and perhaps even culture, has become a metropolitan city that almost looks like a cleaner New York. Only the buildings aren’t as tall and the roads are nowhere near as busy. Berlin has everything that you want city life to offer. Great food, wine bars and a beautiful riverside view. Last weekend I got to experience the new Berlin, as I travelled with HERE for the Berlin Marathon.
In less than 5 months time I will be getting married. I can’t believe I just said that. It feels like it was just yesterday when I had tears streaming down my face as I said “Yes”, in Bali. And now 11 months on, the big day is just around the corner and all I can think about is wearing my wedding dress.
10 weeks have passed since I decided to sign up for my first half marathon and in that time I have signed up to another one, had some amazing running sessions and had some not so great ones too. And with just under 4 weeks until I complete the Royal Parks Half, the thought of crossing the finishing line after successfully completing a 13.1 mile course is starting to feel a little bit real.
