    Tuesdays on the Run: My Dream Race
  • Um…can you believe that it is almost April?  That Easter is this weekend??  Does it feel like this year is flying by so far?  It also feels like with spring coming that one pot meals and comforting soups will be going by the wayside soon in favour of freshly grilled seafood and salads.

  • This past weekend I ran my first race since the Goofy Challenge in January, the Glencoe Icebreaker 10K. Thanks to patellar tendonitis and not running through all of February I wasn’t sure if I’d even still be able to run this race a few weeks ago.  I came back slow and smart from my injury… [Continue Reading]

I’m back to running!  With every run I feel more confident that my knee is doing well.  After taking most of February off due to injury I feel out of running shape though.  Yesterday’s half hour run felt […]
