Keeping safe on your morning run

Hello!

I’ve been doing a few early morning solo runs recently. There is something magical about being one of the first people out in the morning. Certainly where I live, the streets are mostly quiet, except a few other runners, dog walkers, and those coming home from work/starting work early.  As well as feeling AWESOME that you have completed your run before work, you are beating the heat, and there is something special knowing you are one of the few seeing that spectacular sunrise.

I made these AMAZING chocolatey crunchy power-balls (gluten free and vegan) and not only are they super simple to make, but they are a protein and fibre powerhouse of goodness – they are great as a pre-/post-workout snack or a no fuss treat on-the-go.

GUEST BLOG #15 – Why do you run?

Hello,

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

I’m only running one race this year, and why I am super excited by that.

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.

5 key foods that support mental health (and a berry chia pudding recipe)

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

Coach G (in training)

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.
