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]

Move to Heal

It’s no secret that I’m pretty much an open book. However, when it comes to my mental health, this is probably the only thing in my life I’m not SUPER open about. Maybe this is self-stigma but I also don’t talk about it that much because I just really try not to let it define… [Read More]

You can’t pour from an empty cup

Right now I am supposed to be sitting in my cramped Kia Rio driving from Chicago to Toronto after having run the 2016 Bank of America Chicago Marathon. Instead, I am sitting at the kitchen island in my Toronto condo after shoving my face with a Thanksgiving feast writing this. Annoying post about running coming… [Read More]

Consistency

How sticking with one thing can change everything Over the Easter long weekend Happy Hubs and I drove to Northwest Indiana to spend some time with his parents as well as spend a day in one of our favourite cities- Chicago. If you haven’t been to Chicago I highly recommend checking it out. It has… [Read More]

Spring Tips for Eating Well

I know that it is now April (though you wouldn’t be able to tell by the blast of snow we received here in Toronto) but it was just March. For those who do not know, March is Nutrition Month, this is certainly a National Health Observance that I can get behind and the inspiration behind… [Read More]

FREE Yoga!

Living in Toronto has some serious perks. It is clean, it is full of incredible culinary talent, there is never a shortage of stuff to do, it is diverse, it is full of ravines and parks, it is friendly, there is an endless supply of incredible coffee shops and we are home to the best… [Read More]
