    Karen is one amazing woman, and it's nothing to do with the fall. I think Karen would have been one of your interviewees whatever.

    I worked a 12 hour day with a 8 mile run on my dinner and came home to my 6 miler and thought i really cant be bothered, then i remembered i still had the interview to listen to on this weeks show so thought i better get out to listen to it.

    Wowzzer came home in a totally different mood and frame of mind how amazing, and from now on i will be doing gold sessions instead of my usual killers haha fantastic way to end my day:) and what an inspiration will be watching out for Karen :)

    Yes, Gold Sessions is a GREAT way to put it. The power of positive thinking! I'm adopting the term too, for sure.
