Hiking meets climbing....happy happy joy joy (with pics)
Saturday, March 19, 2016      9 comments

Today we attempted a new hike. I knew it was going to be aggressive but my husband was given all the information and decided he wanted to try it. While he didn't make the whole loop my friend and I did get 11K done. It was a VERY aggressive h... Read more
I think I can I think I can. Oh heck, sure I can...I think.

When I drive the back roads to my daughters I often see people running and knew that eventually I'd want to try that route. It was my "one of these days" runs. With the weather getting nicer it's quickly becoming that day. The route isn't far... Read more
Cauliflower breadsticks
Wednesday, March 16, 2016      12 comments

This week I'm trying a bunch of new recipes. The herbs in my garden have new spring growth and I love cooking with them so it seemed like a good reason for new meals. I've seen the cauliflower breadsticks a few times and finally got around... Read more
Making the hat trick
Tuesday, March 15, 2016      10 comments

Last year I ran my first 5K race, it took 49 mins to complete and I'm pretty sure a week to recover. On Sunday I ran a 5K in the morning hitting a PR and would have happily ran another 5K in the afternoon but the rain and wind had other... Read more
5K day!
Sunday, March 13, 2016      12 comments

When we got to the race today it was pouring and cold. So very wet, so very cold! With the storms we've had the route was more mud than path and this caused problems. I don't think I ran 5 steps the first half KM, the path was clogged with so... Read more
Power outage, torn muscles and cute shoes

FINALLY! We finally got our power back late yesterday afternoon and the internet and phone this morning. That was not fun! The wind storm did some damage in our neighbourhood and luckily ours is minimal. A ripped screen door and a big sc... Read more
Registering for my first 10k!
Tuesday, March 08, 2016      17 comments

WOOT! This month I have two 5K races, I thought one was next month so I was a little surprised when I got the reminder email about upcoming races. That's ok, I'm looking forward to both of them and they are just a bit closer together tha... Read more
It's easy? Maybe from your point of view, mine's a bit different
Sunday, March 06, 2016      24 comments

This last couple of weeks I've dealt with a lot of interesting comments from friends and family. But the theme seems to be the same. I thought I'd express my thoughts here on the comments. "Its easy for you, but I have a lot more weight... Read more
10K Trail Run
Saturday, March 05, 2016      15 comments

We headed out again today to do the same trail run as last weekend. I'm feeling much better today and we really pushed ourselves. It has rained a lot this week which brought a few new challenges on the trail. It started out easy and it ... Read more
Oh Friday you sexy beast!

This seemed like a really long week but I think that's mostly due to not getting out much. When you telecommute and don't leave your home it can ... Read more
Made it back to reality
Thursday, March 03, 2016      10 comments

Well that was an interesting few days if nothing else but I'm glad it's ending. Today is the first day that I feel up to real exercise and it hasn't been from lack of trying this week. Monday I was determined to go for a walk after work... Read more
If the elephants group, I'm outta here
Monday, February 29, 2016      12 comments

Ten years ago I had to take anti-inflammatory meds and I had a very bad reaction to them. I forgot about that. Really wish I hadn't forgotten about that. I know I did a run on Saturday, I know this because I read my blog and I have phot... Read more
Ok body you win, I'll admit I'm tired

This morning when I got up we were engulfed in fog and I knew at the bottom of the mountain would be raining. I curled up with my coffee, turned on the fire and sat enjoying the quietness. No run today, I'll play with the girls when they come... Read more
To the trails! (and as usual, way too many pictures)
Friday, February 26, 2016      12 comments

It was a beautiful day again yesterday and I talked my husband into trying a trail I've being waiting all winter to get out to. It was the first trail we had hiked after moving here and back then I couldn't get anyone to run with me. Now it's mu... Read more
Shoulder on the mend!
Thursday, February 25, 2016      9 comments

I finally went to the doctor seeing that my shoulder wasn't magically healing on it's own. Don't you hate when your body doesn't magically heal? I was happy to hear that it's nothing more than an inflamed deltoid muscle. My doctor asked me how I... Read more
