This week my kids unknowingly gave me the answers to the question that I get asked the most: Why do I run? Pretty much everyone who is a non-runner has asked me this question in the past year and a half. Non-runners seem to be satisfied with a get fit, lose weight, be more healthy […]

Not a gym rat

The past few days have been frustrating as a Montreal runner. Freezing rain and icy cold temps have made for trees, cars and streets to be covered with layer upon layer of thick ice. It is highly treacherous to walk to your car, let alone even think about running. So I had no choice, I […]

Race update!!

Yesterday I registered for the local Resolution Run on December 30th! Yay!! Okay, so here’s why this is so exciting to me… I’ve done a few 5km races and recently did my first 10km. I had wanted to get in another 10km before the holidays but haven’t been able to find anything in my area […]

Another 5km done!

I did it! Actually managed to shave a minute off my time since last month’s race. New 5km PR of 30min40sec baby! Not fabulous but it keeps me well on my way to accomplishing my goal of running a full marathon by this time next year. So today’s race started out pretty much the same […]
