Weekend Wine!

This weekend Hubs and I enjoyed a bottle of the Inniskillin Riesling Pinot Grigio. It was a 2011 vintage. (Anyone else feel weird to call a year vintage when it was last year? I get the why but it just feels weird)

Brought to you by the Letter B

Yes that's right today's run was all about the letter B. As in bra and brum brum.

That would be a car revving.
That probably makes no sense to you but well let me show you my Garmin.

See the stickers? Those are Sally and McQueen from Cars. My boys picked them out for me. It would make me faster they said. Well in my comeback so far its working! Today I got a run in where the only times I stopped was for a red light. So 3 maybe 30 second stops in that time. And I kept up the pace, thought I wasn't trying to. I was just running and hardly looked at my watch. I felt great and it was definitely a run that made you want to get out there again.

Now for the other B

Dusting Off the Blog!

I know I know!!!

Things have been hard to keep up with. After I got over that latest bout of depression in the winter I started having IT issues on my left leg. I'm convinced its because I tried pushing too hard and wasn't listening to my body and I basically had to take myself out of the game.

During that time though I got a job and I don't have conventional 9-5 hours my days are not the same each week so it was hard to even think about getting runs in. At the time my focus was finding a routine that worked considering for 7 years I was Stay at Home Mom it was easy to work everything in. Suddenly we had to adjust to me not getting home till bath time. Hubs making more dinners and helping out MUCH more around the house than he previously had to to. There were plenty of bumps in the road and major learning curves. But we are getting the hang of it.

And I want to get back into the hang of running regularly. I have plenty of excuses as to why I haven't started up again yet and they are just excuses.

This past weekend was Marathon Week here in Toronto! While I didn't race I have a friend who walks half marathons so together we decided to check out the expo. It was so moving to see all the people there getting ready to race. To see all the booths of different races from all over. Honestly it gave me an itch.

Of course I'm sure getting to talk with John Stanton helped a bit with that.

It just made me really want to step back into the road and join them all. I miss the community and joy that the running world holds.

I picked up this shirt at the expo and its my new mantra.

P.S there will be changes going on here since I'm no longer just a Mommy Running Through.
