You never know where inspiration will come from. This week it came from @sarademizio who Tweeted: Strong is the new skinny!

He speaks of three different strengths, physical, mental and…

While running on a treadmill over the winter months can maintain and build your running performance, there is a certain argument to be made for heading out the door and exploring the realm of winter running. Snow, ice, and layers of clothes transform simple running into an exercise that sharpens balance…

While I have walked a marathon carrying a 30 lb. backpack while hiking the Appalachian Trail, I had never run one. I'm excited to say my husband & I ran the Philadelphia Marathon Nov. 20th and crossed the finish line together! Of course Vega is already a part of our lives, and remained a key element in our training & recovery. Thanks Vega for being a product I truly believe in & continually extol your virtues & benefits to others! It definitely helps carry me through my busy… Continue

It's no secret, brussels sprouts have a bad rep. Speaking as someone who has never before brought this unsought-after vegetable into my home, I decided to take a chance on this recipe I found online. But if I'm really being honest, the vinaigrette sounded delicious and so I thought it was possible the dressing could give them a fighting chance. The result? Unexpected success and so I am recommending it to you all today. That is, if you haven't yet made up your mind about this little green… Continue

When I was 16yrs old I decided I no longer wanted to eat red meat or pork. When I was around 19yrs old I stopped eating chicken. Around 20yrs old I stopped eating turkey. Around 27yrs old I stopped eating fish.
I had always expected that I would eventually cut out some more things and maybe eventually even go so far as becoming vegan.
Last year I started to get really frustrated with stomach pains and bloating. I went to see a gastroenterologist who sent me for scopes which… Continue

Today is less than 2 weeks to my first sprint triathlon in Key West, Florida.
How did I get here??
My regular type of exercise consists of running. All distances of running - shorter (5 km, 10 km), longer (21 km and full marathons) and even Ultra's. I have been running since 1999.
Two years ago, I started getting injuries.
The first injury happened when I was doing the Great Canadian DeathRace in Grand Cache, Alberta, which is a 125 km… Continue

January 13 is the first race and i'm expecting a tough and fast track. If i keep in the top 32 then i go to the next race in Aare… Continue
