Healthy Heart Challenge
I have such an awesome weekend planned. Tonight, some of my best friends and I have a date to go see this:
I am also attending a New Balance run with Black Toe Running in Toronto to celebrate the launch of the amazing 1080! I have tested them out on some runs this week and am taking them on their first long run this weekend and excited to pile on the miles and see how they respond. This is a high mileage shoe with lots of support and is perfect for marathon training. Looking forward to giving a full review when I have put 300-400 KM on them to see how they hold up!
And – of course, I am watching the Olympic trials. I didn’t watch the super bowl, but you better believe I am not missing a second of this!
Oh yeah. And it’s valentine’s day which is the perfect time to talk about hearts. Twenty five years ago, my uncle passed away in his early thirties from a heart condition that is genetic. He was in perfect health and it completely shocked everyone. All of my grandparents have suffered from heart attacks. I have cousins on both sides that suffer from heart defects. I guess, if we are going to be completely blunt and morbid – unless I go flying off the side of a cliff in an adventure race – heart issues are probably going to be the way I pass away. #HappyValentinesDay
For this reason, I do everything I can to live a healthy, balanced lifestyle because although you can’t change your genetics, you CAN change your lifestyle.
