Your Karmic Mission, Should You Choose To Accept…

Happy International Day of Peace! I’m very excited to say that I’ll be celebrating the day with a karmic yoga class in the afternoon benefiting another one of my favourite charitable organisations, Amnesty International! But you don’t need to donate to a charity or do anything particularly bendy to celebrate peace today! Just complete these […]

My goal for today is to find a Four Leaf Clover

My goal for today is to find a Four-Leaf Clover. Actually my goal for today is to run between 10-15 miles, run through all of my songs for Sunday night, and clean that God-forsaken national disaster area I call a room (its getting so bad, my dust bunnies have started setting up FEMA camps).

Tips For Avoiding Sexually Harassing or Assaulting Runners (Or Just About Anyone)

Just Keep Running, Just Keep Running, Just Keep Running Running Running…

I kinda went with the flow this morning and just did what felt right and what felt right was to just keep running, running, running, until I’d done a little over a half marathon. Like. A. Boss. I think it’s because I had my new Make-A-Wish running vest on – I was super-powered by wishes! […]
