Genuine Health

What. A. Weekend. I was in Toronto for a training weekend which consisted of a 200 KM long ride, a long run with a Toronto run club and an overdue brunch and a coffee date with some friends. I saw some leaves turning colours on my way to work today and although I am sad… Read More…

friday

Excuse me. I’m just here in my coat, searching for August? Summer is always gone way way way too quickly for my liking, but I have so many exciting things planned for this fall and winter that I am willing to part with warm sunshine, green trails and sparkling water…at least for the time being….

BEST way to finish off a pair of shoes

I am not an overly sentimental person. In fact, I was an alarming child for my parents because I never had a special teddy bear or blanket that I needed for comfort. This lack of sentiment arises as I am preparing to move for the fourth and final time this year and have no problem… Read More…

HEYOOO! Well, I have indeed made it to Colorado and it is amazing!

Goals for August 2015

transrockies

Well that was a month that certainly did not go as planned… July was amazing but it was a little bit different on the training front that I expected. There was a moment where I was fighting back tears on the examination table where my coach said to me “Endurance sports are character building –… Read More…
