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

Global Running Day

We already know that there is a day to celebrate everything so Global Running Day is no surprise. To celebrate, my inbox had exploded with running related promotions this before I’d even gotten out of bed this morning. Lots of race deals and giveaways and all kinds of fun. Yay! In …
