Just Another Sunny Day In Paradise

Good afternoon! How is everyone doing on this bright and sunny day in February? This has been the best winter I’ve ever experienced. It’s my first winter in Toronto, and there has hardly been ANY snow! It’s been great for driving and it’s been great for my outdoor training! I absolutely hate being cold, so when it’s snowy and slushy and icy outside, it’s very hard for me to get up the motivation to hit the pavement. I’m sure I’m not the only one… The training for my half marathon has been going well! I have a countdown going on of how many runs I have before the race, and it’s down to 50! I started with 68, so I’ve had 18 training runs. That’s pretty good! According to my running app, I’ve run a total of 81.24 km, and have ran a total of 15 hours, 13 minutes and 4 seconds. I’m curious to know how many km’s and hours I’ll have put in by race day! That’s kind of exciting to find out. My knees are much better, I’ve been icing them for 30 minutes after every run and I’ve been doing exercises specific to my weaker muscles. So far it’s really been helping, and I’m so glad! No pain is AWESOME. So since my last blog post I’ve starting “Pinning”. Pinterest has become a semi-obsession of mine; I have the “Pin It” button on my computer and everything. Do you have Pinterest? If you do, definitely follow me – I’ll follow you back! There are so many different boards I want to start, but I’m refraining and only pinning to 9 different boards. I REALLY want to have a “wedding ideas” board, but I’m going to stop before I even start, that board would have more pins than any of my others. I love weddings and everything wedding…. I won’t feed the fire. You can check out my Pinterest site here.
Also, I have an awesome idea for any lady who loves trying new products. I’ve subscribed to what is called GlossyBox. I saw it on television this morning (thank you Breakfast Television!) and knew I had to try it as soon as possible. Basically it’s something you pay $15/month for (delivery is included in the price) and each month you get 5 new product samples shipped to your home based on a beauty profile you fill out (ie. Organic products, colour of products, colour of your skin, etc.). It comes in this cute, little box all done up with a ribbon on it, and has instructions and tips on how to use each product. How cool is that idea? I’m so excited to receive my first GlossyBox, I can hardly contain myself!
That’s all for me today folks. I have a ton of work to do, but thought I’d give you a little update on my training, and the exciting Pinterest and GlossyBox! Stay Sweet. xoxo
