Seattle Weekend Recap

Once again I’m coming at you a bit late, but I arrived home after midnight on Sunday, crawled straight into bed, and then woke up in time to run a gazillion errands yesterday. Falling asleep around 2am meant waking up at 10am, rushing to get ready to go to the Apple Store and then trying […]

Thinking Out Loud – Friday Edition

Hello friends! I’m coming at you a day late and a dollar short for thinking out loud (linking with Amanda). I figured not a whole lot of people would be hanging around on the internet yesterday – and I had a super busy week, so posting today it is! American Thanksgiving So. Y’all know I’m Canadian. And […]

Dashing Through the Glow

No, I did not misquote lyrics to a Christmas song…I actually haven’t broken out the Christmas music yet or set up my Christmas tree, which is odd. That will be happening soon. Though it is starting to feel like Christmas as Calgary received its first big snowfall yesterday. Growing up on Vancouver Island meant that we never […]

Combating Winter Dehydration

Disclaimer: This post is sponsored by Fit Approach and SOS Hydration. All thoughts and opinions (as always) are mine. Once or twice a week, I’ll come across an article (or articles) about how important it is to stay hydrated. During the summer I have no problems throwing back the H20, but once winter comes it […]

A Wonderful Weekend

I’m kind of the worst and never remember to take pictures of my weekends, which is why I never recap them, but I had such an excellent weekend that I’m recapping with gifs instead.  Enjoy!! The big highlight of my weekend was the Stella and Dot Trunk Show I hosted at my house on Saturday. […]

Returning from Injury

While I have suffered from niggles here and there throughout the 5 years I’ve been a runner, this latest injury is the first one that’s truly sidelined me and thrown me for a loop. I was officially sidelined by my physio on November 2, but the last time I actually ran was on October 18 […]

Running and Nutrition

During my two-week (but more like 4 week) break from running, I immersed myself in reading about running (when you can’t run, read, right?!). One area I know I’m not doing as best as I can is nutrition, so the first book I picked up was Racing Weight. Eating better, running better, and losing weight?! Yup. […]

Back to Training (Kind of)

Last week on Wednesday I was cleared to start running, so on Saturday I went out for my first run in a month. If you follow me on Snapchat (search: cowgirlruns) you would have also been treated to me singing while running. I was super tempted to run fast and run forever, but I knew […]

Depression Can Bite Me

Ten days ago I called my doctor and was able to get in for a same-day appointment. I mentioned to her that I’d been feeling off since September and it just wasn’t going away. I’d been getting outside, exercising, spending time with friends and trying to force myself to do things I knew were good for […]

Lest We Forget

I’m off work today in honour of Remembrance Day. November 11 is also Armistice Day recognizing the end of the hostilities in WWI on the 11th hour, of the 11th day, on the 11th month. In Flanders fields the poppies blow Between the crosses, row on row, That mark our place; and in the sky […]
