Thanks for coming to check out my blog. Gushing here allows me to express my passion for running and hopefully be a positive inspiration for others.
Matt and I
Lola thought the big day was all about her. Such a diva!
Lola on the run! <3
After deciding to make some lifestyle changes in the Fall of 2008, I joined the gym and started out with 20 minutes of treadmill running working my way up slowly.
In January 2009 I met my now husband, Matt, who had just completed his first full Marathon in Miami, FL. I asked him two questions, 1. "How far is a Marathon?" and 2. "Do you have to be on a team to do that?" LOL. I grin when I think of that girl now.
I became an avid runner that Winter/Spring and in May 2009 entered my first race, (Bluenose 10km). During that race, I ran like the wind. Or so I thought I did, (LOL) and puked all over the finish line when I was done. Yay me! Finishing time: 49:32.

I have learned a lot since that race and have developed an even deeper love affair with running. <3
