About Me


Good run!

I’m a twenty-something woman who has recently found she loves running. While dabbling in it a few times throughout my life I became committed in late 2006. I originally blogged to keep up my own motivation but have found so many other positives through it – mainly networking with other runners. I finished my first marathon in October 2007 and am loving the world of being a runner, blisters and all.

Other fitness interests I have include: diving, swimming, pilates, yoga, hiking/backpacking, horseback riding and biking. My favourite wine is red, chocolate is dark, movies are foreign, music is anything and books are satirical. If you have any questions just ask or e-mail me: runforlife [at] ymail [dot] com

All pictures were taken by me.  Please ask if you would like to use them, thank you!

  1. I like your new blog format. K

  2. Hey there!
    Checked out your blog, it’s fantastic – we thought that you might be interested in this note. And please feel free to pass along to your running friends! Happy to answer any questions you may have about the opportunity.

    Greetings Canadian athletes,

    Are you a passionate athlete who draws inspiration from Terry Fox’s Marathon of Hope?

    At CBC Television, we are presently creating a program which would illustrate in detail what Terry accomplished in 1980. The event will reacquaint new and existing generations with Terry’s example of athleticism, determination and self-sacrifice.

    A team of twelve runners will start the marathon in St. John’s, NFLD on April 12th. Each participant will attempt to run 3,339 miles in 143 days – matching Terry’s daily mileage – arriving in Thunder Bay, ON on Labour Day weekend. Our camera crews will document the journey from the first day of training through to the end of the run, providing viewers with updates on the participants and their fundraising efforts.

    Our first episode, to air in April on CBC, will see the introduction of the participants and the stakes set for the run. Terry’s enduring and building legacy will be highlighted. We are working in conjunction with the Terry Fox Foundation, who in the past have declined proposals where the intent is to symbolically or literally finish the Marathon of Hope. This concept does not infringe on that wish.
    If you are interested in participating in, or supporting, this initiative — we want to hear from you. We welcome any questions at any
    time along the way.

    An ideal candidate would possess the following:

    1) They have been inspired by Terry’s story and have a history of supporting Terry’s vision and principles
    2) They have the ability and willingness to fundraise
    3) They believe and offer evidence that they are capable of physically attempting the run
    4) They are willing and able to put aside work/other commitments for 4 and a half months to document their personal journey.

    Do you have what it takes to go the distance?

    If you would like to participate as a runner in this historic event, please reply to marathonofhope2009@gmail.com , sending us your contact information and telling us why you are the ideal candidate for the show.

    In addition, we ask that you please create a 3-5 minute video so we can see you in action. Your video should include: Your name, age, hometown and why you want to be a participant in the Marathon of Hope 2009. Please upload your video to YouTube.

    Need extra help uploading your video?

    Deadline for applications:
    January 8, 2009

    Please notify us immediately by sending the URL when you’ve uploaded your video.

    We look forward to hearing from you!

    Michelle & Lara,
    Marathon of Hope 2009
