Reflecting & Recommitting
Sunday, March 01, 2015      5 comments

How can it have been 6 years since I last wrote a blog? That is just crazy!! I almost didn't believe it when I saw the date of my last blog. Life has changed a lot since then. I've had two babies in the past three years and moved to a different ... Read more
Up for a Challenge
Thursday, April 16, 2009      15 comments

I can't believe I haven't blogged since last November. What a slacker I am! It's only been a couple weeks though since I've been able to get back on SP since moving and being without internet for what feels like forever. I'm almost all mov... Read more
Falling in love all over again
Saturday, November 22, 2008      22 comments

This week I unintentionally fell in love with running all over again and let me tell you it feels great! After the marathon I was left wondering, what's next? I didn't really get the post marathon blues that others talk about. I was all too happ... Read more
26.2 Miles Done!!
Monday, October 27, 2008      36 comments

Where to even begin? I guess at the beginning. Yesterday was the big day when I ran my first marathon, the Niagara Falls International Marathon. I got up at 6:00 having had only about 5 hours of nervous on and off sleep. I got dressed and set ou... Read more
This is it!
Saturday, October 25, 2008      9 comments

In less than 11 hours I will be running my first marathon! It's all very surreal and I'm no where near as nervous as I thought I would be. I'm trying to get myself to go to sleep, but I'm not really tired even though I know tomorrow will be an e... Read more
18 Miles of Therapy
Wednesday, September 10, 2008      12 comments

I spent most of my teenage years in therapy and I bet my parents could have saved a lot of money if they'd just sent me running instead. There's nothing like a long run to clear your thoughts and spend some quality time with yourself. I am one h... Read more
September Goals
Tuesday, September 09, 2008      4 comments

I never really got around to writing out goals for August. I started, but I never finished and I spent the entire month kind of directionless. I didn’t realize just how much writing out my monthly goals helps me and keeps me focused. I am going ... Read more
New Laptop=Back Online
Friday, August 08, 2008      4 comments

I have been MIA for the past three weeks, but I'm finally back. My internet access has been sporadic at best and there was a whole week I wasn't able to log on at all. I didn't get the shakes, but I did miss it:) We moved out of our house which ... Read more
Happy Canada Day!!
Tuesday, July 01, 2008      3 comments

I started off Canada Day with a long run this morning. I'm not a morning runner at all, in fact I hate mornings. I usually go running around 8 at night and find this to be the most convenient for my schedule and also the best for trying to run i... Read more
Calorie Deficit for June 15-21
Monday, June 16, 2008      6 comments

CALORIE DEFICIT FOR THE WEEK – Goal of 1,500 deficit to lose half a pound (At this point since I’m so close to goal, I think one pound a week would be crazy. I’d either have to starve or spend 2 hours exercising every day) Goals for the Wee... Read more
Back in the Groove
Saturday, May 31, 2008      5 comments

Finally a chance to sit down and breathe. I’ve been trying to write this blog for a week now. The past week and a half have been crazy and I haven't had a chance to get on here much . I didn't even have time to log most of my exercise and food l... Read more
My Plan for the Week (May 19-24)
Tuesday, May 20, 2008      3 comments

I don't often write down my plan for the week. I usually have an idea in my head of what I want to accomplish fitness wise and just fit it in where I can. This week is going to be crazy though so if I don't have a plan it won't happen. My little... Read more
Unexpected Trail Race
Sunday, May 18, 2008      6 comments

Yesterday I ran my first trail race, a 10K, at the local conservation area. I was browsing through the race listing on the Running Room website on Friday night and saw this event and decided to sign up. I had no idea that it was going to be a t... Read more
Mississauga Half Marathon
Monday, May 12, 2008      13 comments

Yesterday I ran in the Mississauga Half Marathon. What a great race! My husband and daughter both came with me and we stayed in a hotel the night before. Saturday we picked up my race kit, found the start line and then enjoyed a nice dinner and... Read more
New Balance Commercials
Tuesday, May 06, 2008      5 comments

If you're a runner and you haven't already seen the New Balance commercials on television you should check them out. I've never had a commercial "speak" to me like these ones do. At times I definitely feel that my relationship with running is a ... Read more
