I am grateful. I am grateful for my family, my health, the health of my children and the ability to tap into more than just the physical fitness side of running. Running this week has been nothing short of a blessing for me. It has been cathartic, a form of bliss that has transported me […]

I can’t believe how fast the time has gone by…feels like just yesterday that I started this running journey and now year 1 of my running is coming to an end. I have less than 2 weeks to go before my first 10km! I am so happy to have achieved my goal of bringing the […]

Go Runner Go!

Got back out there the past two days and ran a solid 5km each time. After 5 days off for Thanksgiving and irregular training prior to that due to shin splints, I assumed that my first few runs back would be difficult. To my surprise they were fabulous! I felt rested, strong, fast and above […]

Totally threw all my good eating and running habits out the window this long weekend and replaced them with endless meals, lots of wine, movies, tractor rides through the local apple orchard and beautiful sweet moments […]

The Secret Club

Trail-Runner

Before I became a runner…I had only two consistent thoughts about the topic. Runners? Never noticed any….is that a popular sport? Why? What is the point of running? No goals, no teams, seems kind of boring. So it’s quite amusing that I became a runner almost by accident. I was looking to get outside and […]

Too much of a good thing

Last week I was so eager to get going on my 10km training that I totally overdid it and gave myself shin splints. Three runs with extra distance and hills, along with teaching dance 3 nights/week really did me in. By the end of the week and throughout most of the weekend, I was sitting […]

First day of 10km training

Today was my first official day of 10km training and if I wasn’t excited enough about that….I woke up still on a high from Sunday’s race, which really made for an all around fabulous run. A nice 10 degree crisp fall day, a new route that included beautiful scenery and hills, fall leaves beginning to […]
