Finding the season tough? I get you…

As the holiday season is fast approaching, I can’t help but start reflecting on the year that was. I don’t really know what it is about this time of year that makes us do this. In some ways, I feel like I’m punishing myself for all the goals left unmet, expectations not risen to and voids left unfilled. Maybe it’s the way my brain is wired or maybe it’s the way I taught myself to think without even realizing it but this time of year is not always the easiest. I think of old family traditions amidst the brokenness of Read More …

My Personal Thoughts on Polar’s New M200 Running Watch

Disclaimer: I’m a 2016 Polar Ambassador and as such have received an M200 to review and no cost. All opinions are my own. So I’ve been using the new Polar M200 for a few weeks now. I’ve already given you a rundown of some of the features of the watch here, so now it’s time for my own thoughts. First and foremost, the M200 is a running watch. It has integrated GPS, wrist-based heart rate monitoring and gives you display options during your run so that you have easy access to the data that is most important to you on Read More …

Polar Introduces M200 Running Watch

Disclaimer: as a Polar Brand Ambassador, I received an M200 Running watch as part of my ongoing relationship with the brand. All opinions are my own. ********** For my friends and family in the US, you guys have been on a roller coaster ride over the past couple of weeks but I’m hoping that as you all prepare to celebrate your Thanksgiving, you can take some time to reflect, enjoy and find joy in the little things. You also have this crazy tradition of Black Friday. I’ll admit…I don’t get it but I also am not a fan of shopping Read More …

Running Toward: Zip, Zilch, Nadda

I don’t know where time is going but I’m in shock that tomorrow is November already. This fall has been nothing, if not crazy. In spite of the busyness of our every day, I’ve had quite a bit of writer’s block lately. I don’t have a single thing to write about. Even though we have lots going on, none of it is really worthy of writing about. We do swimming lessons, skating lessons, I work out, I work, the kids are endlessly sick (curse you germs!). I guess I don’t see the value in writing about every minute detail of Read More …

bRUNching it with Lululemon

Last weekend, I participated in a fun 5k event here in town. Lululemon put on their first annual bRUNch run. I literally stumbled onto it randomly and it seemed like fun. And hey, it was only $20 (practically free as far as race registrations go) and promised some potentially decent swag.  Budget friendly and free stuff? Yes please! It was not the nicest of days and after some hemming and hawing, I decided that running it was probably not the smartest thing to do. My knee has been in rough shape since Swamp Donkey last month. Remembering back to last Read More …
