Do You Want to Run a Ragnar?

Do You Want to Run a Ragnar?

By Princess Jodi Do you want to run a Ragnar? Doesn’t have to be a Ragnar… It could be any multi-day relay adventure involving teams, vans, sleeping in fields, navigating new places and, of course, running. Lots of running. When I was chosen to run the Ragnar Relay Napa Valley with the Another Mother Runner … Continue reading

Running on Vacation

Running on Vacation

Vacations are meant to be a break from schedules and routines, but it doesn’t have to mean a break from running! Run away from life for a week, sure, but don’t run away from your fitness goals. Some of my favourite runs have taken place while on vacation. I know that some people consider exercising on … Continue reading

Road to Ragnar

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

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

I Believe

Lately, I find many people have been asking me just how I find the time to run.  Looking back over the past almost 2 year journey, I remember being a non believer. I never thought it was possible to find time to run.  So, here is how I manage to find time in the week … Continue reading

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
