Zoo, Mother’s Day & Running

We are finally having some beautiful spring like weather in Nova Scotia! Actually, on the weekend we had summer like temperatures…shorts and t-shirt weather – it was fantastic! (we still had snow on our lawn until May 6th!)

We had a busy weekend with swimming lessons, the zoo, mother’s day shenanigans and I finished it off with a little treadmill run.

With hit up the Zoo with some friends.


Running wild…


Four trouble makers πŸ˜‰

Mother’s Day started off with a little sleep in {actually, I listened to Lilly and Sai make breakfast and hang out – it was cute}. Once Hilary and I got up, we had the most amazing veganΒ Tiramisu Protein pancakes – all at my husband’s doing. I don’t want to brag but these really were awesome! We gobbled them up!

After our bellies recovered from such a big breakfast (okay, later that afternoon) we did a little biking on our street.

Then this mother runner got her run on…

  1. Ooh, now I want to know why you gave up your FitBit for the week! I’ve been thinking of getting an activity tracker, partly for the steps but also for the vibrating alarm and alerts if I sit too long.

    • You know what? I totally didn’t think I could do it either but it feels so good right now to not have it on! I’m sure I’ll change my tune πŸ˜‰
      When I’m not so injured and training for my next half, I totally want to wear it to see how many steps I actually take every day along with training. Maybe that’s why I’m just not loving it lately…because I’m doing minimal running for me. Hummm… πŸ™‚

      • I got mine in the height of my Boston training and I would LOVE seeing all of the steps – during my recovery from the race, I was often not hitting my 10K mark each day and getting so mad at it! LOL!
