Running Thoughts


This morning was the perfect morning. It left me with so many running thoughts…. The kids left for school by 7:30am, the air was cool and crisp, the sun was shining. Everything fell neatly into place. I ate my oatmeal and headed out for a run by 8:30am. I didn’t use my Garmin and I […]

Getting Out Of Your Comfort Zone


I have my workout routine pretty set. Running is by far my first love but I also do various combinations of yoga, Pilates and most recently started lifting weights. I normally work out from home and only occasionally do group classes. This past week however, I was invited by a friend to really get out […]

But to this runner and specifically this Canadian runner, fall is not an ending but a beginning. It signifies the beginning of my all time FAVORITE  running […]

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 […]
