Blogger Brunch and Magazine Review
This weekend, I had the pleasure to meet up with some Healthy Living Bloggers from the KW area for brunch at Cora’s.
It was my first blogger meet-up and I was a little nervous. I have been reading these ladies’ blogs for a while and I felt like I knew them, but I was unsure how it would be face to face.
I didn’t need to worry at all. They were every bit as lovely in person as they appear.
The food was fantastic….
…and so was the conversation.
It was a tiramisu-like creation with 20 layers of crepes and creme filling that she had made. I ate it for dinner and normally I am a chocolate-for-dessert-and-chocolate-alone kind of girl. But this…it was out of this world fantastic.
It was a lot of fun to meet up with other bloggers and I am excited to do it again.

This evening, I received the second issue of Trail Runner in the mail. I received a free years supply from them this summer and I figured it was high time I did a review. I also subscribe (and pay) for Runner’s World so I feel like I have a good comparison. I took a picture this month’s issue of both magazines for comparison.
The first thing I noticed was that Trail Runner is about 1/2 as thick as Runner’s World and it is still more expensive. There are almost an equal number of advertisements so there is less content in Trail Runner. There was more play by play of ultra marathons then advice on proper form and training. There is about a 50/50 ratio of advertisements and content which is a set back for the high selling cost.
It is useful for the fact that it supplies specific training, gear and race advice for trail runners, but I was a little wary of how much they hate on road racers.
Trail Runner is a great magazine if trail running and ultra marathoning is all you do. I read mine every month and learn something useful to take with me on my runs every time. However, cost and content wise, when I am buying a magazine, I will stick to my Runner’s World.
What is your favourite magazine?
Mine is Runner’s World and Vogue.
Run Strong, lovies and have a stellar week!!
