So you’re not a runner you say? Only if fits in your schedule? Well if we put the fitness reasons aside for a moment, it’s totally normal to have these thoughts sometimes. Or a lot of the time….. Although I do identify as a runner, this morning I just didn’t have time for a run. […]

Life will never be the same, life is changing….. What an outstanding 5 days I have just lived!! It is almost impossible to properly describe the Tony Robbins live experience. I thought I knew what to expect. After all, I have been reading his books and listening to his audio programs for years. I was […]

What does Valentine’s Day mean to you? Is it chocolate and flowers? A romantic dinner for two? DIY Valentine’s cards that took 2 hours to make for your child’s school friends? Or just a random warm and fuzzy commercial reason to help us get through the most arctic month of the year? For my family […]

It’s done!! I have officially entered my first MARATHON! Woot! Woot! It was a bit of a spontaneous moment.

Lest we forget…

Inscription of the complete poem in a bronze "book" at the John McCrae memorial at his birthplace in Guelph, Ontario, Canada.

Ahhhh…my run today was long and filled with heavy thoughts. Yesterday I hadn’t planned on writing this post but now it seems I cannot focus on anything else. Late last night, I watched an Anderson Cooper report about a man who was born into a political prison in North Korea. His story is haunting. I […]
