On Defiance: Matcha Shots

Sometimes running can make me feel defiant. This winter, I have been wrought with injuries because I have been training outside and the combination of cold weather and slippery roads have been causing numb feet, cranky achilles and tight calves. I moved my training indoors so lately I have been drifting along on the treadmill […]

Goals for April 2014

Happy Monday, friends! How was your weekend? I had a busy weekend full of two successful back to back long runs and lots of socializing!     I was loving the taste of spring weather that we had in Southwestern Ontario on Sunday and it made me realize that April is tomorrow, which means it’s […]

Carbs and the Endurance Athlete

It is funny to me that something as innocent as carbohydrates have gotten so much heat in the media in the past number of years. Really, when you think about it – fat was the target only a few short years ago and it will probably be protein in 2020. As an athlete, it is […]

Good morning, friends! How was your weekend? I had a fabulous and glowing return to running, renewed my CPR and spent some much needed time with friends! Last week, I had the pleasure to be involved in the first session of a Yoga for Runners workshop held at Urban Wellness Studio. The location is a […]
