Here We Go Again…

Turns out one race for charity wasn’t enough, so I’m back for Magical Miles Part Deux: Two Hoots, Three Races! Yup, I’ve signed up for the Disney Princess Half Weekend Glass Slipper Challenge AND Princess 5K, and I’ve roped Mama Hootman, who has never run a race in her life, into doing BOTH the Princess […]

My Achey Breaky Shins…

Maybe it’s not the tune that would make Billy Ray Cyrus any money, but it’s what I’m feeling right now. On Sunday a did a commercial dance routine on a very-much-not-sprung village hall floor. Then that same afternoon I did a dance call on a floor that was sprung, but where this happened: It was […]

Disney Quote of the Day is back!

I’m gonna start regularly doing Disney quotes posts again, except now they’ll be a Monday feature! What better to motivate you through your week than some Disney inspiration? I honestly do not know! “Trials and tribulations, I’ve had my share. There ain’t nothin’ gonna stop me now ’cause I’m almost there!” – Tiana, The Princess […]

Ballet Class, aka A Big Ol’ Slice of Humble Pie, aka Why You Should Cross Train With Ballet

If my earlier post wasn’t already hint enough, tonight I took a ballet class. It was the first ballet class I’d had in about a year (and that was the first one since leaving college) and it involved the first bit of pointe work I’ve done since I was about 17. And despite all of […]

Energy Gels/Beans/Chews Review: HIGH5 EnergyGels Part Deux!

So today I took my second set of HIGH5 gels, OrangePlus with Caffeine and CitrusBurst for a spin. Given my last HIGH5 experience, I chose to dilute them both in water, rather than eat them. So let’s get to it! Flavour: 3/10 Meh again. Honestly once diluted in water it’s impossible to tell any of […]

Energy Gels/Beans/Chews Review Episode 3: HIGH5 EnergyGel in Apple and SummerFruits

For the third instalment of my energy products review series, I tried out my first gels: HIGH5 EnergyGel in Apple and in SummerFruits. Both gels were caffeine free, and I decided to consume them through two different popular methods: eating from the packet and dissolving in my water bottle. So, lets see how they measured […]

Energy Gels/Beans/Chews Review Episode 2: Clif Shot Bloks in Tropical Punch Flavor + Caffeine

For the second episode of my energy supplement reviews series, I took a 15 mile run with Clif Shot Bloks in Tropical Punch Flavor + Caffeine! I didn’t get very much sleep last night and I left my run a little too late in the morning after my meagre bagel and cream cheese breakfast, so […]

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). But […]
