39 and Holding on Tight

39 and Holding on Tight

By Princess Alana Well the day has come that I am officially holding on tight to my 39th birthday. I can’t help but reminisce and reflect on how lucky I am to have a wonderful family, a vocation in teaching and a great group of friends. Fortunately, as well, I have been given a clean bill … Continue reading

One Badass Road Trip

One Badass Road Trip

By Princess Jodi February was rough for me. It was dark and grey and cold and awful. It was the shortest month of the year, but felt like the longest by far. Snow upon snow, bitter cold temperatures, and freezing rain on top of the record snowfalls buried my beloved sidewalks and made being outside … Continue reading

Getting Through a Slump

Getting Through a Slump

By Princess Laural Confession time: I’m in a total running slump. And not just a running slump. I’m in a healthy eating, moving my butt, being healthy or wearing-anything-other-than-yoga-pants-when-I’m-home slump. And, it’s a hard one to shake. In October, I ran a marathon. It was amazing. But, that was October. Since that time, well, motivation … Continue reading

Happy Runniversary!

Happy Runniversary!

By Princess Alana Three years ago, in February 2012, fate intervened reconnecting two friends and sending them on a journey of a lifetime. Just like a kiss to a toad, these women set a year long goal to transform their lives through running.  Specifically, these Princesses aimed to complete Disney’s Princess Half Marathon in February 2013. If you … 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

Introducing Princess Laural

Anyone who reguarly reads our blog knows that our training for the 2013 Princess Half-Marathon changed our lives in many ways. One of the most unexpected gifts of choosing that race at that time was meeting a fellow princess-in-training who lived in a land not too far away from us. Her name is Laural. And … Continue reading

Running into 2015!

Last blog, Princess Jodi took a run down memory lane including highlights of her most memorable moments from 2014.   This week, let me share how 2015 came in like a lion. Roar! Since Jodi and I began this blog only three short years ago, running the New Year’s Resolution Run has become quite a tradition … Continue reading

Falling Back In Love…With Running

Falling Back In Love…With Running

I’m back! Life has been crazy on my homestead and while I know that is no excuse – sometimes life just happens. Yes, I am that type of runner that some of you just might relate to. First, running and I have a love/hate relationship. I love to hate it – especially when I get … Continue reading

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
