Vega One Nutritional Shake Review

Vega One Nutritional Shake Review

I realize it has been more like ONE princess on the run since 2014! After experiencing a flood, fire and fraud in the last 8 weeks, I definitely feel like I have been running standing still. I miss spending time with my BRF’s running the indoor track. I miss even more the opportunity to run with … Continue reading

Race Recap: The Run for the Cure

Race Recap: The Run for the Cure

Earlier this month, we ran one of our favourite races – and one of the select few that make our race calendar every year: the CIBC Run for the Cure with K.Lo’s Krew.

Little Princess On The Run

Our girls have always been our top priority when it comes to running. A look for in any race is that it is family friendly. If there are kids races, then that is a special bonus.

Princess on the Mend

Okay – it has happened!  After fourteen months of running, I have experienced my first running injury.  And, for the first time, I truly relate to the frustration that Jodi and many other runners have gone through.

Lessons Learned on the Way to the Castle

What fairy tale is complete without a lesson or moral? Both Princess Jodi and I have experienced so many life lessons this past year.  It must be the fact that I am raising two girls, 4 and 2 years of age (the terrible 2’s and independent 4’s are testing even my patience), and I am approaching a 30-something birthday, … Continue reading

So Close to the Castle

So Close to the Castle

I really didn’t think running a half marathon was going to be that hard.  Really!  When Jodi and I decided we were going to embark on this crazy adventure, the possibility of failing never crossed my mind. Running 21.1km, to a newbie runner, sounds overwhelming.  It is a wonderful moment to be two weeks away … Continue reading

Final Count Down

Final Count Down

Forget racing to the castle! In just over a month’s time, Princess Jodi and I are about to: After reading reflections in pictures, taking a look back at all of our races over the past year, it has hit me very hard that time is running out.  All too often, people make empty promises or … Continue reading

Safety First

Safety First

As my dear husband drove me around town searching for “the perfect hill” for my training, it became apparent that safety concerns were not just on my mind, but on his mind as well. It is getting darker so much earlier, and the mornings are dark so much later. For us working moms, these are the only times … Continue reading
