First race of the season..
Half Marathon 1:43:09 25/132 I was hoping for a sub 1:40 but considering this is my first race coming back from a knee injury, I’m pretty happy.

And better than ever. So much exciting news to share with you all. I’m still running and skating and there will be more snowboarding this year but one exciting thing has happened. I made my university’s track and field team. I’m still going to be hurdling at the 60m distance as we only have an indoor season and my coach is transforming me into a hammer and weight thrower! ...
Anonymous asked: I love the Asics Sting 33, the same color on your picture. I can't seem to find them here in CA. I'm wondering if you got them in CA. Do you know of a retailer that carry this color?? (grey, spring green, yellow). Thanks!
Anonymous asked: Just happened upon your site...Love it. Congrats on your healthy choices and thanks for the inspiring videos :)
My brother and I swam laps while we were at the beach yesterday and now both our arms are killing us. I skipped body weight workouts today and just went for a run, however my brother helped a friend move… He’s passed out with ice right now lol
I ATE FISH FOR THE FIRST TIME IN AT LEAST 8 YEARS.
That’s all. probably even longer than that because I haven’t had tuna since I was in grade 2 and then slowly stopped eating in grade 6 and completely stopped in grade 8. (it’s a big deal to me)
If a dog can do it, you can do it.

After deciding to not go for a BQ on my first marathon just over a month ago I decided to train for a 4:15-4:20 time. The expo was great, met lots of runners, Katherine Switzer, and just amazing people over all. I walked around Toronto with my mum and had a delicious meal at East Sides. We head back to the Hilton to relax, watch the Rock game on the telly and then get a good nights sleep. My...
Toronto Marathon this weekend. I’ve scrapped my Boston goal as I won’t have time with school so I’ve decided to just go with a sub 3:50 and to just enjoy the experience. I haven’t decided where I want to go with my running yet. I want to go into ultra but at the same time I’d love to stick with the marathons. Also, as of Monday, I will be doing hot yoga at least 4...
I am so excited to be home on Friday
And by home, I mean back in good ole’ Ontario on my farm. I can eat fresh produce, fresh eggs, bagged milk, and get back to work and live my extremely busy and healthy summer months. Also, just the fact I’ll have food because I don’t have any groceries and have eaten out (healthily, mind you)
Practice yoga. Egos aside, just have fun! Don’t judge meat eaters. Don’t judge non meat eaters. Wear Lululemon to work. Ride your bike to yoga. Wear a helmet. Practice yoga on all religious holidays. Keep your friends close to you. Make a new friend. Keep a friend. Forgive a friend. Call your parents. Accept others differences…no one is like you, that’s a good thing. Put yourself in an...
I'm sorry but I needed some time.
I went away for a week to clear my mind, be stress free and it worked. Until I got back to school. I have to admit that over the last few weeks I have put on a few pounds (minus the water retention from the copious amounts of flying that I’ve done) and I realised that while trying to figure out what I’m doing for school I totally forgot to keep myself in check. While I was still eating...
