Mixed Feelings

It’s many days after the Blue Nose 10k and I’m just now sitting down for my final post.  BlueNose race weekend is amazing. Everything about the weekend is amazing. Do yourself a favour – get involved! Run or walk a race, volunteer (there are soooo many volunteers needed to pull this off) or just come […]

3 More Sleeps!

So this is it! The last post before race day. I have had butterflies all week and I am just ready to get out there and Giv’r! Last weekend’s practice run was awful. I was in extreme pain from my knees and hips almost the entire run. I completed it – but I didn’t enjoy […]

I did it!!

It’s been a couple of weeks since my last post – life has been crazy and stressful to the point that I woke up yesterday morning and had a moment of self-debate about whether I just wanted to tackle the mile long list of things I had to do or get out for my long […]

Bridge – ‘Nuff Said!

I’m not sure what I was expecting – I honestly haven’t spent much time thinking about race day and definitely not the particular route we’d be running on that day, so I wasn’t really mentally prepared for yesterday’s first run along the front half of the Scotiabank Blue Nose 10k race route.  Maybe if I […]

This has been a good week so far but I’m still a little nervous. This weekend I strung together 2 great runs – a great short run on Saturday with my Mentor, Alisha and a great long run on Sunday with “Speedy Gonzales” Marsha where I not only got all my intervals completed but I […]

Feel like a runner

So week 3 is underway and our long run on Sunday went much better than anticipated. Last week was lacking in motivation so I skipped a lot of my own training days – which means I expected Sunday’s long run to be really really awful. But it wasn’t. I actually did all my 3:1 intervals […]

Well sh#t!

So my worst nightmare about this running thing came true. I seriously crashed and burned on hill night. I was nervous all day for what was in store and it was a cold and blustery night on that hill. It was only going to be 10 minutes, 30 second intervals. I could do this….nope. Not […]

I made it!

I am so far out of my comfort zone, I can’t even see the line anymore…. Sunday morning I woke up and fought off all 1, 423 excuses that flew through my panicked brain as to why I could not get my butt into Halifax to do my first Team Myles run. I got dressed […]
