Sick and Tired..

Being a shift worker has been my biggest challenge during Team Myles training. My co workers were incredibly supportive and helped me out by doing shift switches with me so that I would have the days off that I needed in order to get to most Thursday hills and Sunday long runs, however, that meant […]

Proud of my Pod

To make things easier on the race directors, coaches, mentors and most importantly team members the group is divided into small pods with a dedicated mentor to help answer questions, provide encouragement and sometimes yell ( here’s looking at you Chrissy).  Its a little unsettling to reach out to a group of random ladies and […]

Race day!

Its so hard to find the right words to try to begin to express the mixture of emotions from race day. When my alarm went off at 5am I already had my Team Myles shirt laid out with the rest of my outfit and gear, breakfast was planned and anything I could have ready was […]

I own that hill!

All throughout our training I’ve been having a hard time on the hills in Point Pleasant Park. I decided on the first day that I wasn’t able to run them without walking and each time we run I mentally psych myself out before I even give it an honest try. With raceday quickly approaching I […]

Team Pride

For our last Tuesday training session we decided to forgo the hill and tackle the race route. Everyone was nervous and trying to decide the best running plan for their personal goal. I knew from the weekend that I could do 5k with no walking breaks so I decided to set my sights on that […]

Saturday 12k

On May 12 I had the pleasure of running in the 2016 CUA Lung Run with a few Team Myles members to help raise awareness for lung health.  We had team training that morning and had run 10:1s for 7-8k so I wasn’t sure how smoothly the evening run was going go but we rocked […]

10K competed!

As we are getting closer to the ScotiaBank Bluenose Marathon my nerves are kicking in. We have been running twice a week, attending 360 fit bootcamps and TAYS yoga classes to help make our bodies and minds strong but not having run that distance yet plays with your self confidence. My friend and fellow Myles […]

Old Sole

I actually began writing this blog last week, but true to the story, life kind of happened in between… Last week I was feeling a bit weary. I certainly wouldn’t say unmotivated, run down maybe? Sometimes so much is going on behind the scenes, that it’s hard to know what to show on the surface. […]

Stepping outside my comfort zone

Although my fellow Team Myles members may have something different to say I’ve never been the type of person who likes being the centre of attention.  Hiding in the background became a safety mechanism for me after years of being overweight and new situations always bring on a sense of panic; so bootcamp style workouts […]

Better Call Paul

My knee khurts. It’s been hurting for some time… I probably should have addressed it mid-last week, but I was too “busy”, I thought it would go away, yada, yada. Truthfully, it is feeling better than it was at the height of it’s pain, but it was so bad that I missed last Saturday’s group […]
