Is this thing still on? I know It’s been a while, but I’m back! Back when I first started this blog I wasn’t exactly sure what I wanted it to be about. I was taking a graduate certificate program in workplace wellness and health promotion and my passion was (and still is) helping people live… [Read More]

Popping my Marathon Cherry

It’s now been three weeks since I ran the Chicago marathon and added “marathon finisher” to my list of running accomplishments. I have four black toenails, my sunburn is gone and I can walk again with ease. I’m not going to sit here and talk about how easy running a marathon can be if you… [Read More]

Reflections on “Slow” Running

I was a little hesitant to write this post. Not because I am embarrassed by my speed (or lack thereof) but more so because I don’t want anyone out there to feel like they are not a great runner based on their speed.  Also, I hate using the word slow (I really tried hard to find a… [Read More]

Redemption

“Hello fear, thank you for being here. You’re my indication that I’m doing what I need to do.” -Cheryl Strayed On Sunday morning at about 8:25am I hurried into a crowd of people as it rained down on us.

A few weeks ago I saw something on social media about a new Spinning studio called Spokehaus that… [Read More]

27 Kilometres for 27 Years

With an early January birthday, I often feel that my birthday is the REAL beginning of a new year, because it is literally a new year, at least for me. I find it hard to believe that as of last Thursday, I am now in my 28th year of life. The highlight of my day… [Read More]

Let it snow!

I have a confession to make. Last Saturday I didn’t get out of my pjs until about 6:00pm. On Sunday, I didn’t get out of them at all (unless you count the 40 minutes that I put leggings on for to go get take out, after which I put my pjs back on). Monday was… [Read More]
