Some days things happen to remind us that is always another way of looking at things. Yesterday as I walked past my downstairs guestroom I saw something white hop across the floor. Hop? I gathered up my 2 year old granddaughters, my hus... Read more

Today I was really excited to get back to the trails. The snow has melted, it was a relatively warm day and as soon as my husband got home from work we headed out. YAY! Trails, mud, fresh air...umm...snow? Ok, so the snow has melted at h... Read more

The newest item I've added to our home gym is a balance board. I really like it and I am getting pretty good at being able to do my squats on it. My husband has left it alone, worried he was too big for it and I was fine with that, coordinati... Read more

Let me tell you a story. Once upon in the beautiful land of hikes and run, where fresh fruits and veggies fell from rainbows of happiness a joyful couple lost over 200 pounds. They were happy, they were committed, they were not stopping and... Read more

When my daughter suggested a 10K trail run with her toddlers I immediately accepted. At two years old her girls are already avid runners and I love that this will be a memory they will have growing up, running with their nana. It took a lot o... Read more

What a great time we had at Disneyland. Let me actually rephrase that, what a great, healthy time we had at Disneyland. The trip was well planned out and my daughter and I managed to successfully eat healthy (at least 80% of the time) and def... Read more

Each year my daughter and I head to Disneyland. I used to take her for her birthday and now it's so much fun to take her twins. It was also fun to watch her make a fatal error. She got the girls excited about the trip, too excited. Now they w... Read more

I suggested to my husband he try aquafit and much to my surprise he agreed. Ironically my daughter called later that day and asked if I wanted to go to HIIT deep water. The conversation went like this. "No, Jeff wants to try aquafit so ... Read more

After the two rounds of ice storms we've had it was confusing to see blue sky and warm weather yesterday. My husband and I stood at the window trying to sort out our emotions on the unusual colour in the sky when he turned to me and said six ... Read more

The end of 2017 and the beginning of 2018 was certainly different. With the ice storm hitting us, our daughter and her inlaws without a safe home (tree took out their roof) and our house filled with all the stranded bodies we took a huge deto... Read more

I've been locked inside for 3 days while the storm pounding our area, today I got to venture out. As much as I would have loved to hit the trails the trees are so heavy with ice huge branches are snapping off and it wouldn't be safe. I decide... Read more

Two days ago the snow started and then quickly turned to frozen rain. We watched transformers blow up as the entire city was engulfed in darkness...except for our little pocket. 120,000 people without power yet we managed to keep ours. We tol... Read more

I jumped into the living room and smiled at my husband who was looking far too comfortable on the couch. "Lets go for a run!" He scowled at me and looked outside. "It's dark, cold and snowing. I know you are not going to drag... Read more

I wanted to get out for a run this morning, by 4:00 I finally got to fit it in. Heading down to one of our local lakes I turned to Jeff "Sun doesn't set till 6 or so right?" "Or in 10 minutes, one or the other." When I got to the ... Read more

One of my goals has been to run a race somewhere really cool. Somewhere I could look back and say, "Ya, I did that." I just registered for a half marathon along the Giants Causeway in Ireland. AHHHHH!!!!!!! I am so excited abo... Read more
