My Little Runner


In this last week of mild fall weather I have aimed to get in as many runs as possible. My daughter seemed to have noticed because she announced on Sunday afternoon “Mama!! LET’S GO RUNNING!!!!”. We hadn’t gone for a run together in a while so I figured why not. It certainly wasn’t going to […]

Montreal Marathon Recap -I Survived My 1st Marathon!


The day started out very early at 4:30am. I purposely woke up earlier than I needed to so I wouldn’t be rushed. I had time to hydrate, eat, get dressed, meditate and stretch out my body with some pre race yoga, all before waking up my family. The hubby and kiddos drove me to the […]

Montreal Marathon Countdown


I am completely amazed at how fast two years have gone by. I ran for the very first time in my life in September of 2013. Back in 2013 I walked, then I jogged and then eventually I ran around the block. I ran further and further until running was no longer something I was […]
