Don’t you dare compare!

It’s human nature to compare ourselves to others. Worrying that your are not measuring up to your peers, or feeling left out. Last year I found I was comparing myself to too many strangers on the internet. I followed all these people that seemingly had their lives together. They had tons of time to work […]

So. Many. Hills!

If you’ve ever walked or run around the HRM you learn pretty quick how hilly this province is! I moved to my new neighborhood last summer, and although I know my usual route was pretty hilly, I never really noticed it much. Until today! I haven’t run much since December. Maybe once a week. And […]

New goals.

Being a super chatty hairdresser, people are usually surprised when I tell them I’m really nervous in big crowds. So meeting everyone at the launch last Thursday had my  stomach in knots. I was definitely out of my comfort zone!  We were told to meet and mingle, and what I really wanted to do was […]
