Sneaking in a few more KM in 2018

I’ve been trying to sneak in a few more running kilometres the last week or so. Nothing major – just a handful of 5k’s here and there.

We survived the holidays, enjoyed some much needed family time with LOTS of good food and laughs. I even packed up the tree today! Kinda early for me to pack Christmas in but to be honest, I’m ready to move on from Christmas and have my house back to normal. (Well, as normal as it can be with two kids – we have sports gear EVERYWHERE not to mention toys and books …. but I love it).

We’ve had some crazy weather recently: -9c one day and then plus 9c the next day! Snow, rain, and now everything is frozen! I’ve barely used my #merrymill lately mainly because I’m running more with Carmacks but I have a feeling I’ll be using it more in the coming months.

I’ve reached my running goal for the year but still just enjoying some short runs to keep me active in between playing soccer and skiing!! We got in our first ski day last week and hoping to get there again before the girls are back to school!

Hard to believe that 2018 is almost done but you know what? I think I’m ready for a new year! Lots of fun adventures ahead!

I’m super excited to become a Endurance Tap Ambassador for 2019! If you haven’t tried Endurance Tap…aka…amazing maple syrup – oh I mean, fuel (maple syrup, ginger and sea salt) for your runs/rides etc. Keep an eye out in the new year!

I’m also returning to Tiux as an Ambassador – my favourite go to compression socks. Still wearing them, still loving them. You can use ANNASTIUX for 20% of your order!

I’m working on some year end posts that will likely be posted early in 2019. Stay tuned for some wrap up posts: 2018 running and mileage totals!

Anyone else getting in a few more km/miles before the end of 2018?

Have you set your 2019 goals yet? ) I haven’t.

Any New Year’s Eve plans?

As always, you can find me posting on IG at “pipersrun”.

I am joining Team Nuun in 2016! Looks like I’ll be staying well hydrated while I run, cycle, ski, snowshoe and run after my girls next year! And yes, running after your children is a workout!

Have you ever tried Nuun?

What’s your favourite flavour? (Fruit Punch is mine)

Anyone else on Team Nuun or a Nuun Ambassador?
