Hi everyone! If you'd like to read about my experiences at the Victoria Goddess Run this past Sunday, head on over to Fierce Fatties and take a look. Thanks to everyone who's left encouragement over the last couple of months, it's meant a lot to me.

How Far?

May 13, 2013

Last week's running mostly didn't happen except for the Sunday run though I did fit in two 5km walks; however, it didn't feel the same. So yesterday I didn't download and play my usual podcast (which would've been week six I believe) and instead lace…

You'll Get Fat Again

May 3, 2013

It's been nearly a year since I've had a good night's sleep. The best I've been able to muster is about six hours, which does feel good, but it's not as great as nine. This time last year I was easing into 'really pregnant' territory, having trouble …

Sunday Runday

March 25, 2013

Yesterday was my promised me-time; an hour's run from here to the lagoon and back. It was a bit chilly but by the time I was not even halfway through I'd tied my sweater around my waist and didn't even notice the breeze anymore. The beach was deserte…

Ah, my old enemy...

March 18, 2013

Sunday I went for my first 'real' run. I left at about 11:30 and was back by noon, going along this route here. It's approximately three and a quarter kilometers, which is not quite two miles. I meant to go along this route but it started raining a b…

Lessons in Running #1

February 27, 2013

 Some mornings I walk Gabe to school. Most afternoons I also walk him home. 90% of the time I have Kat with me in her stroller, so we're really just strollin' along. Often Gabe wants to play tag which as you can imagine is difficult with a stroller …
