Napa Valley. I wonder if an hour goes by when these 2 little words are not on my lips or on my brain? … Nah. The countdown is on! In less than 2 months, I’ll be hopping on a plane to San Francisco (with flowers in my hair, as the song goes) to run like a … Continue reading

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.

Race Recap: The Amazing Fitness Race

Race Recap: The Amazing Fitness Race

Two weeks ago, I participated in a brand spankin’ new race in my area. This one was really unique in that you teamed up with a partner to complete 10K with 5 fitness challenges along the way. And that is not all: you did so while wearing backpacks loaded with bags of rice. It was like boot camp on … Continue reading

Wishing for a Fairy Runmother

Wishing for a Fairy Runmother

My thoughts went for quite a wander on one of my most recent training runs. It was yet another hot and humid evening run, logging the miles in preparation for the Niagara Falls Half-Marathon next month. The sweaty, sticky temperatures got me thinking about things I wish I could will  to happen on race day … Continue reading

The Running Virgins

The Running Virgins

So here’s a running truth: your first year on the run will be the one in which you make the most progress. Everything is new. Your body is pushed to its limits.
