We Survived {spring} Snowmageddon

It’s over and done with…thank you snow gods! I love snow and usually, USUALLY don’t mind shoveling the nice fluffy white stuff but I am done with winter.

The storm went down like this:

Last night I attempted to go out and shovel the snow but the wind was so bad I didn’t want to risk it. Plus the wind didn’t stop last night so I would have shoveled for no reason. It was nice to curl up on the couch and watch a movie.

This morning I had the pleasure of leading Team “Dig Out of the Driveway”….with my two side kicks: La La Lilly and Hipster Hilary. Luckily we have an AMAZING neighbour who came over and used her snow blower on 90% of our driveway!

Okay Spring…we’re all ready for you. This rain, snow and ice pellets that you have forecasted for this weekend – don’t even think about it.

Do your little kids wear sunglasses on sunny days?

Since it’s Spring…what’s your favourite thing do to ?


Because I Love To Run

I can genuinely say that I love to run. However, I didn’t always feel that way.

Like when I was 14 years old and training for soccer. Running, doing Fartlek training and then being tested. I probably hated it because I was being tested. I even hated drinking water back then too but would drink it because I knew I needed it. I now love drinking water….it’s all I drink, for the most part 😉

I love running on a cool fall day, on the snow covered ground, with rain falling on my face in the spring. I love how I feel after a hard run on a hot summer’s day. I also love that I have the opportunity to run on a treadmill.

I recently saw this video thanks to an awesome Canadian Running Blogger group I belong to and just had to share it.

 Do you LOVE to run? 

Or is Running something you just do?

If not running, what do you LOVE to do?
