Three cheers for: RunWESTIN

Maybe you’ve heard of this, maybe you haven’t. I just caught wind of it a few weeks ago and then I learned much more while we were at the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Seattle last weekend. Did you know that when you stay at a Westin Hotel you can actually …

The power in passwords

Summer solstice and the longest days of the year. ♥ Wherever you are, I hope the sun is shining for you.  “And so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, just as things grow in fast movies, I had that familiar conviction that life …

Infinity jars

I see it all the time. People go to great lengths to change their lives and especially their eating habits and then there they are in the lunchroom at work munching on their super health-conscious lunch out of a flimsy department store plastic container. They worked so hard on their …

Race Report: Rock ‘n’ Roll Seattle 5k

As you probably already know, we went down to Seattle for this year’s Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon series event on the weekend. Originally, we’d been contemplating the half marathon, but then decided that we didn’t think we would be ready after an injury and an unplanned running hiatus over the …

Shout out to my dad

I didn’t get to write about him yesterday because, well, life. Instead, we were in deep recovery from a whirlwind trip and then we went to hang out with him in person. We watched the US Open (that’s a huge gift from me to him – I hate golf) while …

Writing is great, but living is better

Someday I’ll have a high ceilinged stairwell where I’ll hang mixed and matched chandeliers. For today, I had life, laughter, love AND: A road trip from our house to Seattle then back to Bothell for the night A fantastic time at our first ever Rock ‘n Roll Marathon Health Expo …

Our *other* passports

I’m super excited about this weekend because I get to do one of my favourite things. Run? Yes, I get to do that and I’m pretty into it. Travel? Uh huh. That’s at the top of my list. Okay, so this weekend it going to be filled with a few …

Let’s talk fitness apps

Technology. Say what you want about it, but our lives wouldn’t be the same without it. Whether it’s keeping in touch with loved ones, making new friends, deciding what to cook for dinner, which movie to see (not to mention where and when), the weather, the stock market, the news…whatever …

Intermittent fasting

Okay, here I go with another of these wacky experiments that I periodically try! This one is intermittent fasting. I’ve done a fair bit of reading about it since listening a podcast that introduced me to the idea and here’s the scoop: your body has a lot of real estate …
