Hamilton Hiking Day Two: Tiffany and Sherman Falls! The Photograp...

IMG_2197

After spending half of the day hiking Webster and Tews falls, we rested our weary legs back at home and geared up for a second day of hiking. I threw this lovely dinner together for post-hike fuel. This salad is a potential cookbook recipe, but if it doesn’t make the cut I will certainly post […]

A Hiking Trip in Hamilton, Ontario: Webster and Tews Falls + Our ...

IMG_0814

This weekend Eric and I went on a hiking adventure in Hamilton with our cameras, backpacks, and tripod in tote. I totally underestimated how tiring lugging 10 pounds of camera equipment would be while fumbling all over steep trails. Somehow I didn’t wipe out despite wearing my 5 year old sneakers with the soles worn […]

IMG_9569

I feel like so many of my posts have started out with… “On Facebook, I asked you about x,y, and z and you gave me 5 gazillion suggestions.” Well, you’ve done it again. Do you charge a fee for this service? Maybe we can put it on my tab… =) This time, I pestered you […]

It’s now been about 3 weeks since I decided to take a break from running due to aggravating my knee while lifting a heavy box during the move. I thought I would give you guys a bit of an update and let you know how things are going. Of course, running on an already sore […]

After a 1 week break from workouts, I finally felt like I had enough energy to get back into exercise yesterday. My body was literally craving a run! It was also a good excuse to take a much needed break from unpacking. For some pre-run fuel, I tried out a Vega snack bar that I […]

It’s official: I’m hooked on 5k races! My second 5k race is under my belt…err…bib, after yesterday’s Frosty 5k race in Burlington. I had such a blast. There was also a half marathon going down…kudos to the brave souls who ran it yesterday! Unlike my last 5k race a few weeks ago, the skies were […]

Busting Boredom on the Treadmill: 5 Mile & 5km Workouts

IMG_7593

When I hear the word treadmill, a few words come to mind: Boring. Repetitive. Dull. Auto-repeat. Nooooooooooooooooooo. You too? My reaction is mostly because I tend to fall into major treadmill ruts. I’ve recently discovered if I don’t consciously make an effort to create interesting treadmill workouts, then I really only have myself to blame […]

Old Man Winter Vs. Heart of Gold

IMG_2296

Leave it to Old Man Winter to arrive promptly before my first race in almost 16 months. Impeccable timing, Old Man. I swear, it was mild and there was no snow on the ground when I booked the race. As soon as I booked, a storm moved in on the weekend and the temperature plummeted. […]

Rekindling a Love for Racing

IMG_6538

Have you ever had a hobby or activity that you love and let it get away for a while? And a lot of time goes by and you start to wonder if you’ll ever get back into it? That’s sort of what happened to me with running races. In 2009, I got hooked on races […]

Old School Total Body Workout

IMG_6158

My theory is if I drink a lot of smoothies, spring will magically appear.  So far, outlook not good…(although today was the first dusting of snow we’ve had practically all winter!). This is why I haven’t changed my blog header to a winter theme yet…I need more snow! This smoothie was made up of frozen […]
