Runners of Steel (Part 1: 5K and Expo)

By Princess Jodi Warning: Picture Overload Ahead! It had arrived: race weekend! I had a mother of a road trip ahead of me as I prepared to drive almost 5 hours to Buffalo where I’d meet my princess partner in crime, Laural.

Winning the Nike Lottery

By Princess Jodi Remember that time we entered the Nike DC lottery and didn’t get in? And took it totally personally and grew a chip on our shoulders for Nike?

Around The Bay 30K in Pictures

By Princess Jodi I didn’t blog much about the training for this race, despite the hours on hours of treadmill slogging required to get race ready during the coldest, most uncooperative winter, for a very simple reason: I didn’t know if I could actually do it.

Princess on the Ride

Princess on the Ride

Where have we been lately? Well, I’ll tell you where I was yesterday morning. On a road in the middle of nowhere. On a bike I hadn’t ridden since the Fall. Riding past cows and sheep and horses, while being passed by trucks and cars and motorcycles. Noticing the roadkill and hoping I wouldn’t become … Continue reading

Toronto Half Marathon Race Recap

Toronto Half Marathon Race Recap

It seems like forever since Jodi and I escaped for a girl’s weekend away.  The Goodlife Half Marathon took place on May the 4th – only a couple of weeks ago!  Usually, our races are family friendly and often the girls are running along side of us.  Typically for me, as one of my girls … Continue reading
