Salted Maple Whip Cold Brew

It’s no secret that I LOVE coffee. Love may even be an understatement. When I first started my instagram account, it pretty much revolved around coffee and going to different coffee shops. While I don’t often post about it anymore, I certainly do still enjoy it and consume it just as much. Trying out new… [Read More]

Sweet Green Tahini Smoothie

I am NOT a morning person. And while I do love a good, slow, hot breakfast, I’ve learned that most mornings it’s just not in the cards for me. Luckily, I LOVE smoothies. They are easy to make, easy to pack with nutrition, and easy for on-the-go (less of an issue now that I’m home… [Read More]

One year later

It’s so hard to believe that we are here, one whole year after the world shut down. Some days it seems like it has flown by, whereas other days it seems like it has gone on forever. Some days it almost feels normal and I’m so amazed at our collective ability to adapt, but then… [Read More]

On intuitive eating

I know it’s been a lonnnnng time since I’ve last posted but I’m really looking to (try) to get back into regularly posting. While I don’t think it’s really fair to brag about all the “good” things that have come from this Pandemic as I have luckily not been overly impacted by it, I find… [Read More]

Blended Banana Coconut Coffee (two ways)

I don’t know about you, but things are really starting to feel like groundhog day over here. Now in our ninth week of social distancing here in Canada, the days are really starting to blur together. At first, I found time to be going by very slowly, but all of the sudden it’s like I… [Read More]

On my accidental Personal Best

Almost exactly one year after my last marathon I tossed and turned in bed all night wondering WHY ON EARTH I was going to wake up at the crack of dawn and run my third marathon the next day. I sometimes wonder if I have some lingering emotional trauma (I’m not kidding!) from when I… [Read More]

On my “Fuck Yeah!” Marathon

THIS, this is the story I so desperately wanted to share after I ran my first marathon last year. It may have taken me a little longer than I had hoped to get here, but all that matters is that I finally did! I ran a full marathon last week, I actually did it, and… [Read More]

On my “why”

Anyone who has ever applied to run a World Major marathon through the lottery application knows the feeling of waiting on results day to see if you got in. Last year, Zach and I were very lucky to both be able to run Chicago. I had received entry via the lottery in 2016 and deferred… [Read More]

On Patience, humidity and hustle

  Wow. How is it all of the sudden SEPTEMBER? I really do have a goal of blogging a lot more, and while I am often overflowing with ideas on what I want to write about, the reality is I don’t make the time to get it all down. Could I “hustle” a little more… [Read More]

On feeling good

Well, I am certainly LONG overdue on an update. I vowed to get back to regular blogging and yet I somehow blinked and a whole month went by without a single post- whoops! It’s no secret that I’ve had a bit of a challenging time since I ran the Chicago Marathon last October. I was… [Read More]
