    Thanks for stopping by!


    Welcome to my blog!  I love running.  I also love reading about running, hearing stories from others, and of course, talking about running – so I am very excited to have this opportunity!  As a Running Blog Idol finalist, I can see that I have been included in fantastic company, so I am also very honoured.  I’m still in a state of shock, like when you leave for a run on a very cold morning, in the moment before you think “I wonder if I have enough layers?” – you know the one, where you haven’t really thought of anything at all because your nose hairs just froze together but you haven’t had a chance to realize it.  If I had to vocalize the moment, it would probably sound something like “Ghnah!”

    Anyway, I don’t like awkward introductions, so I am glad the editors wrote mine for me!  Next time I will post the story of Sydney that they’re referring to, and if my nose hairs have thawed after that, I can get on with blogging in earnest 🙂

    Thanks for stopping by, I look forward to sharing this journey with you!

    A runner for just over four years, Karen has already completed a marathon, two half marathons and a variety of 5k and 10k races. She describes her first marathon - the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon last September - as "a nightmare." However, she met a very interesting person in the process - a man named Sydney who was running his 152nd marathon! Although the race didn't go as well as planned for Karen or Sydney, he showed her that no matter how experienced a runner you are, you can still have a bad day. "Does that mean we shouldn't bother to prepare, or maybe just shouldn't bother at all? Of course not!" says Karen. "In the end, it is what we make it." We like her optimism!
