So here it is, the first ‘Why do you run’ guest blog of 2019. For a couple of months now I wasn’t sure if I would continue with this guest series in 2019 – but it ultimately turned into pure nosiness in that I wanted to find out more about some incredible runners that I follow on Instagram.
This month’s guest blog is Jill, and her Instagram handle is @jillamama. I absolutely love her Instagram account; not only is it documenting her running journey, but it is filled with interesting Canadian facts. Go check her out and say hello. Read More
It’s March 9th – normally by now I’d have at least 80% of my races for the year booked in, or at the very least know exactly what races I plan to run and my goal for each. This year is different – I only have one 10k race in April, and that’s only in my calendar as I am a clinic instructor for the group – the rest of my year is wide open, and I plan to keep it that way.
Four years ago, I was pretty unhealthy. I didn’t eat well and rarely exercised. This was a bad combination, but as I look back now, I realise that, not only was I inactive and didn’t eat well, I was also poorly educated on food. One of the biggest problems was that I thought I was eating healthily. Read More
Here it is; the last guest blog of 2018. A massive THANK YOU to all the guest bloggers who agreed to be part of this series, and of course to you for reading them. As I’ve mentioned before, I love hearing how other runners got hooked on the sport, I hope you’ve enjoyed getting to know some of the wonderful people in the running community. Read More
If you follow me on Instagram, you may know that I am training to become a running coach. If you had asked me 4 years ago if I would ever see myself being a runner, let alone a running coach, I would have falling off my seat laughing. Nope, back then it was certainly not something I ever saw myself doing, yet here I am – funny how life changes.
If you live on Vancouver Island, you are likely to know Carlos from the Capital City Run Crew (and if you don’t know him, then you absolutely should!). This guy is a machine when it comes to running, even when I ran as fast as I possibly could, Carlos left me for dust…. without even breaking a sweat. Read More
I’ve mentioned before that I love doing these guest blogs because, well, in a nut shell, I am nosey. I love finding out how other people got into running, and what motivates them to get out there time and time again to crush their goals. Not just that, but I like discovering more about them – stuff that you may miss from a social media post etc. Let me introduce you to Saskia, who is this week’s guest blogger. She is a runner and has a fabulous collection of photos on her Instagram page which you should definitely check out. The discovery I made recently about Saskia is we live both live in Victoria, BC! I love how social media opens up the entire world to you, but it’s also brilliant when you come across someone that is close to home; who knows, I may have even run past her at some point. Read More
