Get scared.

Get scared.

“Do one thing everyday that scares you.” Eleanor Roosevelt Last week I decided to accept this challenge. I chose to go trail running at night… solo. Now I love running trails solo, but have never ventured out into the night on the trails. I have journeyed out into early morning darkness, but that was based on the knowledge that the darkness would quickly turn to the lovely golden light that brings with it feelings of safety and...

Magic number 50

Yes, I have a magic number. Now it’s not magic in that I believe it has any supernatural traits. No, it’s actually more like this number gives me the ability to remember what I am capable of when I am feeding off of my last ounce of energy, physically or mentally.

My 3 Day Food Cleanse Experience

I recently started a new job working for an organic grocery delivery company. As someone who tries to be as active as possible and has a goal of running a 50km trail race this summer, I focus a lot on how I fuel my body, so organics seemed right up my alley as I truly believe in clean, natural sustainable produce as the best form of food.
