What a Week!

What, Thursday already?! This week has been busy in the best possible way. Not in the glorification of busy way, but in the my life is so full, I’ve been busy way, and I like it. I mentioned on Saturday my weekend involved marking exams. It also involved hanging out with Jo, Sam and Jen for […]

Running Paris – Paris Marathon Recap by a First Time Marathoner


Lest you think I somehow ended up running the Paris Marathon with your knowing, sadly, I did not.

I know I’ve said before (possibly a hundred times) that blogging friends are the best friends. Well, so are running friends, and I consider myself extremely lucky as most of my running friends are blogging friends, and vice versa! I’m always looking for ways to connect with running friends, sometimes we meet for a spin […]

Link Love 4/18


Guess what, friends?! My birthday is in one month. One! Whee! Should you have a strong urge to send me presents, let me know 😉 Heh. It’s a good thing I have my birthday countdown to fuel me because this weekend is bananas. B-A-N-A-N-A-S. Yesterday I graded exams until 10pm, came home, flopped into bed, and […]

Friday Favourites


Whee! Happy Friday, my friends! It’s been too long since I’ve shared some favourites with you. Sit back, relax, and enjoy Roller Lash Mascara I picked up the Benefit Roller Lash mascara after hearing all kinds of amazing things about it, and I have to say, it’s pretty freaking amazing! I like that I can […]

Random Thoughts


Thank goodness for Thursday where I don’t necessarily need to be coherent. And thanks Amanda for hosting! I feel like I just have a bunch of random swirling in my head, so you’re getting a brain dump of random thoughts today. I ache. Like all over.  I most probably need a massage, and a massage […]

And, well, […]

When You Need a Quickie…


…..workout, that is. Hahahaha. Sorry, I really couldn’t resist that title. I’m actually going to be linking up with Jill Conyers at JillConyers.com, & Jessica Joy at TheFitSwitch.org for The Fit Dish Link-Up and not talking about that other thing. #sorrynotsorry  (Wait, is it still cool to say #sorrynotsorry?

Link Love 4/11


Good Saturday morning friends! As this goes up, I’m on my way to run 15km up and down a hill. Originally, I had 15 miles on my schedule, but since I didn’t make it out for my 10 miles last weekend, I thought jumping to 15 might be a bit too aggressive (I kind of suck […]
