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 […]

HELLOOOOO!!!! So clearly it’s been a while! Apologies to my readers and to the blogging gods.  It’s been quite the journey lately, therefore the timing of this post is quite befitting of it’s title.

Done With Winter

Technically, the winter has been amazing in Montreal this year. We didn’t have snow until just after Christmas. We’ve had many mild days and even weeks since then. Mild of course being minus 5 to zero degrees Celsius. You would think this makes me happy right? Wrong. I’ve recently come to realize that it’s just […]

Magic Holiday Moments

False alarm! No spring…just more snow…

Well turns out that Mother Nature is laughing at me….almost immediately after writing my last post it snowed!! One frustrated runner here. Not to say I can’t still run outside however the joy of seeing the clean dry road ahead of me was quickly taken away. Other than the quick change in weather, I’ve also […]

As the sun comes up and filters through my windows, it beckons my soul to come outside and join it. In careful places, the grass is peaking through the old snow covered blanket. The wind is crisp and light, still cool but no longer biting and cruel. It’s happening….SPRING is coming! This week was the […]
