I manage a country homestead and the lives of my 4 babies ages 10,8,5 and 3. I LOVE TO RUN and NEED to keep healthy and fit for my SANITY!! Seriously....All problems are solved when I am running.

Making MY health a priority allows me to be the mother and wife that I need to be for them.

O.K I totally owe you guys an update. I've been terrible about posting. So here you go.

I hurt my knee again and I did not want to admit it.
I hurt it on the last race because I went too fast for the training I have been doing. Stupid me because I've had to stop running again. So there you go. The update on my running.

On a MUCH....MUCH better note, I just came back from a conference and OH what a conference!!! You see Kingston Ontario is hosting the International University Cross Country Running Championships this weekend. SO!!! I attended a conference where I had the privilege of learning not only from International coaches, but physiotherapists,sport psychologists, and nutritionists. It was so great. I learned stuff that not only applies to my own running, but to the learn to run homeschooling group I organized.

Yes I just said group that I organized....yes I'm crazy but soooo excited to share the running love! So injured I may be but at least I'm getting the chance to share my experience and knowledge to the next generation.

Anyone want to listen? I don't mind talking!!! Oh it is such a nice feeling to share and learn more about a topic I love. I have to admit that being back in a 'seminar' setting also helped me remember that I'm not just a mom of four little ones. That's right! I'm a University Grad, a former personal trainer and fitness professional, military medic, paramedic AND running enthusiast. So nice to be in a setting where I fit in! Where I am learning about something I LOVE!!! and now I get to TEACH what I just learned to an enthusiastic crowd next week.

So nice to be able to do what makes you feel alive!!! What is YOUR passion???

Wow I never thought I would say that.
