Sometimes just putting one foot in front of the next and willing yourself to move forward is the hardest part of the day. I have been struggling training for my upcoming half marathon for various reasons. But today I laced up the shoes, took a deep breath, headed to the park and just kept moving. I hope you all have a beautiful day filled with hope, determination and little steps forward. 💜

There is nothing good about a spring cold. The weather is finally beautiful but instead of being outside all you want to do is hide under the covers. Today my spring cold along with the “pollen tsunami” that is currently happening in NYC is kicking my butt. I have decided the only good cure is to crash on the couch, catch up with the firemen from “Chicago Fire” and keep the Kleenex close. Hope you are all sniffle free. Have a wonderful Wednesday! 😷😎
So many simple things to find beauty in today. A kickass ride for a treasured soul, sunshine, conversations, spring beauty, thoughtful friends, time to breathe…
Here are a few things that made me smile. I hope you find your own little peice of sunshine today 💜
It was a bit of a struggle bus this morning as I pounded 8 miles of Central Park. The sun was shining, everything is blooming, other runners are out in full force-it is pretty much perfect. Except I was overdressed and my allergies were bugging me and my pace was all over the place and, and, and… That is the funny thing about running, everything can be perfect and you can still have a tough day on the road.
But, I did it. 8 miles. I am training again, back in the game. Moving forward. Doing it. I am out there. Ottawa, I am coming for you!! 😀
A BIG thank you to Jessica who dragged my butt through the last four. Gotta love my amazing running partners/girlfriends. I am one lucky lady.
Get out there today and do something that is going to kick your butt just a bit, you can do it!! Happy Wednesday! Play nice and always remember to chose kindness. Xox

Spring, you didn’t forget us!! The sun is shining, the birds are singing, buds are bursting, people are sneezing, the sun is warm and spring is making an appearance. You never know what curve balls life may throw at you or where the adventure may take you but there is comfort in the seasons. No matter how long the winter, the beauty and colors of spring are bursting throughout the city. Take a deep breath, one foot at a time and find peace in new beginnings. Be well my friends. Here is a bit of color to brighten your day!
Well, hello April… I am still wearing gloves and bulky sweaters but today is sunny and on my walk with the D-dawg there were definitely signs of spring. I had to search for them but they were there! Hope you enjoy the pics- happy April, have a wonderful day =)

This winter sure is stubborn. Waking up to temperatures hovering around freezing is getting really old. At least today there was no wind, in fact the weather network described it as calm. Definitely a step in the right direction. I went for a short, slow run in the park today and instead of sticking to the road, I was drawn toward the beauty of the reservoir. The sun was beaming down and it actually felt like it was warming up the pathway. Central Park is ready to just burst into bloom. Any day now, at least that is what I tell myself as I grumble and groan and search for gloves ;) We are all ready. Here are some pics of the reservoir, I hope you enjoy them and can grab a bit of sunshine for yourself. Have a great day! xo
