Yesterday I got up, it was stormy and grey out. I stood with my coffee staring out and made the decision. Take the day off, go for a run. I got dressed and decided to wear my new winter workout clothes. I even bought new running... Read more

My friend and I planned on a hike this week, up past Whistler where the fall colours would be spectacular and there was a 10K hike to the glaciers that we thought would be a fun outing. We watched the weather report since it has been st... Read more
First 7 mile race

7 miles. It really didn't seem like a big deal until I was standing at the starting line getting waiting for the countdown to start. What on earth am I thinking?! 7 miles. I have never run this far, sure I've run 2 10.6K races, but this... Read more

My husband has finally started hiking with me again, it's been months since he came willingly. I was happy and suggested just an easy hike in the hills by our house. When we got to the 1.5K mark I suggested we turn around. He hasn't bee... Read more

That moment we decide we want to lose weight is a great feeling. Empowerment, excitement, acceptance of who we are and strength. As the pounds come off we are filled with joy and every milestone, scale or non-scale are a cause for celebration... Read more

Today my husband and I decided to take the day off. No business talk, no grandkids, no worries, just head out and play tourist. I wanted to take him up the coastline to an area I used to love going to as a teenager. At first I was going to take ... Read more

The last few days have been beautiful and I've made some changes in my work schedule to make sure that I have the time to enjoy the weather. Instead of getting up at 6 to start work I'm up at 4 now and finished by 3. I've been putting those e... Read more
Hiking is a lot like weight loss
Friday, June 30, 2017      10 comments

Yesterday I talked my husband into going on a 10K dinner hike. The hike itself is the most boring one I do but the end result is really worth it. The road is nothing but a logging road with an average of 20% grade. Long, hot and constantly th... Read more

I know that the next 10 weeks are going to be super busy and it will be very easy to let things slide. I also know that I want to be Spartan ready in 10 months. Those two sentences just don't work together. Strength training has been go... Read more

My dad was 66 years old when I was born. When I was small I never thought of him as old. He taught me to fish, took me hiking and taught me to appreciate nature. He loved packing us into the car on Sunday afternoons to go for a drive, grab ic... Read more
