A Big Fat *SIGH*
Monday, February 14, 2011      15 comments

I'm not really sure how to start this blog. A few emotions are going on.... frustration, I'm ticked off, confused... and perhaps a hint of relief (Ha!). I haven't posted about Insanity further, because I haven't been able to continue it. ... Read more
Insanity Day 1.
Thursday, February 10, 2011      8 comments

This is a short blog because I have no energy for a long one! Not two minutes ago I finished my first workout for Insanity - the Plyometric Cardio. Perhaps that was the wrong one to start with, because it killed me. I never was able to do q... Read more

ok, this has to be quick, I'm already late getting out the door this morning! (crazy, addictive spark!) Week 1 of 2011 Goals got off to a great start. Four (yes, 4!) runs done. A round of hot yoga. Alls well so far. Yesterday evening I... Read more

2011. Wow. How did we get here! This is the time of year when we start or renew our goals, say THIS TIME it is going to work. THIS TIME will be different. I'm guilty of that, we all are. I don't know what the magic wand looks like, but I... Read more

So I'm going to put it out there. I gained a whole six pounds in a matter of a couple of weeks. Six. My clothes don't fit well. I feel gross. Six pounds on a 5'1" frame looks more like 10 pounds. And why did this happen? Because I ... Read more
In Flanders Fields
Thursday, November 11, 2010      3 comments

In Flanders fields the poppies blow Between the crosses, row on row, That mark our place; and in the sky The larks, still bravely singing, fly Scarce heard amid the guns below. We are the Dead. Short days ago We lived, felt... Read more
Toronto Zoo Run - 2010
Saturday, October 16, 2010      10 comments

'Twas a Beautiful day!!! Frickin' cold though Today was the Toronto Zoo 10K Run, and I was pretty psyched, even though I haven't been training as well as I could have been. This work thing is really getting in the way of my running! Wher... Read more
2010 Canada Army Run - Ottawa
Monday, September 20, 2010      3 comments

Sunday was the 2010 Canada Army Run, in support of the Canadian army, or more specifically Soldier On and The Military Families Fund. It was a fantastic atmosphere, very patriotic. And amazing to see the strength of the injuried soldiers who rac... Read more

I'm just wondering why, when I wasn't addicted to SP, that I would eat my meals throughout the day, finishing around 6-7pm, and have no inclination to eat anything or anytime after that until the next day. Now, that I"'m food tracking and exerc... Read more
The Smell of Gasoline

Today after my helluva run I decided to do the rainy Sunday thing and head to the mall. Got some new clothes for the new job. With some great 'back to school' sales going on. Alls good. Then I went to Chapters for a couple of hours to hang... Read more
My First 10K!! - 1:09:01.9 (it all counts!)
Sunday, August 15, 2010      12 comments

Another one down. Today was my first 10K, I hadn't even reached 10K in training runs, which is why I've been nervous this week. Thankfully it wasn't sunny, but it was hot and humid, but I"ll take that over sun any day! Surprisingly,... Read more
Edmund Hillary who?
Tuesday, July 27, 2010      5 comments

Now I know why I don't run in the heat. Holy crap. Just came in from a 7.something K, about three hours later than I normally do. It was tough, even got a bit lightheaded at the end. BUT... BIG NEWS!!! I RAN, not walked, RAN two hills that I... Read more
One down, two to go.
Saturday, July 24, 2010      7 comments

I thought I'd write tonight instead of tomorrow as tomorrow will be a full day. The race didn't go as well as I had thought. Yes, I did finish, with a time of 54:09. A lot slower than I wanted, but I did walk a bit more than I wanted, perh... Read more
Here I go again...

Ok. Time to get serious. My chiro today gave me the go ahead to run in the 8K tomorrow, so *tick* that one can come off my 'to do' list. One goal down! Hopefully I'll be ready. I've only run once in the past almost two weeks, and though it wa... Read more
