Dreams (Sprint 4/Day 1)
Monday, November 05, 2012      0 comments

My parents are retired. They've been retired for quite a while now -- about 15 years or so. They were able to retire quite young. Every November, they go to Myrtle Beach for the month, and then they return again in January for a couple of mon... Read more

This morning I got up and was very pleasantly surprised to realize that it's an hour earlier than I thought it was. I want to do a lot today, and now I'm optimistic that I can manage it all. It's the only thing I like about this extra hour. O... Read more

Sometimes we all just have to carry on, no matter what. It's November now, and time to carry on. Carry on with my plans, working towards my goals. Make a plan for next week and just carry on. I have been using my Fitbit since yesterday a... Read more

Tuesday, October 30, 2012      6 comments

Finally starting to recover from the week of Halloween party preparation. I deliberately decided to stay off Sparkpeople last week as I knew it would just add to my stress. There were a few nights we were up until 4am preparing for the par... Read more

Friday, October 19, 2012      3 comments

Feeling good today. I'm on the final hours at work before my vacation. Next week will be an interesting challenge. Without the structure of my usual work routine, there's a possibility that I will slip up on the healthy eating and exercise. ... Read more
True Colours (Sprint 3/Day 4)
Thursday, October 18, 2012      0 comments

There's a big maple tree in my back yard. It's one of the last trees to turn colour in the fall, but when it does, it's spectacular. A beautiful deep red. My bedroom window overlooks the backyard. The last few days, I've been getting up in t... Read more
So Emotional (Sprint 3/Day 3)
Wednesday, October 17, 2012      4 comments

I've been really emotional the last few days. It seems like any song, picture, thought, can have me in tears. I don't know if it's the emotion of the run, or maybe the time of the month. I never know that for sure, because I have a Mirena IUD... Read more

The run was a great success. $300,000 raised for CHEO and Sick Kid's in Toronto. The day was cold, but for the most part, sunny. Our team, Phoebe Rose Rocks, raised over $30,000. I ran a total of 7.5K of the 100K route. The route for my long... Read more
So Tired (Sprint 2/Day 5)
Friday, October 12, 2012      2 comments

Stayed up way too late last night contemplating furniture for my newly finished basement. As a result I am very tired today. Today is a rest day before tomorrow's relay. I did a 30 minute walk at lunch with a colleague. It's really cold ... Read more
