Timing is everything they say. While it’s a cliche, it can be so brutally true that you get smacked across the face with reality.Continue reading
Picked up my Tely 10 Mile Road Race kit yesterday and felt like a bit of a fraud. Was legit embarrassed when the volunteer handing me my bib commented on the fact that I must have registered as soon as the site went live… which is true. I was literally the 10th person to complete their registration.
I have not trained to the level I would have liked. In fact, despite this being my eighth year doing the Tely, it is likely my worst year in regards to pre-race prep. Life got in the way and I just wasn’t able to make it a priority.
You’d think my level of enthusiasm to register would have helped push me to train and as a result feel more prepared… but here we are. 🤷🏻♀️🤷🏻♀️
Tomorrow’s goal: don’t pass out. 🙄 The greatest challenge right now is that my mind and legs want to run faster than my lungs and heart can handle. My heart monitor will be in charge during the race and I’ll adjust my pace as required. Most importantly, I’ll aim to have fun.
Good luck to the other 4,000+ participants who will hit the pavement in the morning. 👍
My Poppy Sturge is 92 years old today. I’m very fortunate because both of my maternal grandparents are still alive (shout out to Nanny Sturge!).
So many people know Art Sturge – from pretty much every corner of Newfoundland and Labrador. He’s had some interesting jobs over the years and I’ve always enjoyed hearing his stories.
Me: You know what? The baby had a bit of a rough night, so I think for once, I’ll take a nap when she naps this morning.
The Universe: Yeah you see, we have other plans for you today. Buckle up!
This is a post I started writing almost 5 years ago. Haven’t been able to simply delete it, so I’ve updated and added some details.
Before giving birth to our first daughter, I had to deal with some rather horrifying birth stories. Surprisingly, it wasn’t necessarily family or friends who wanted to share their story, but sometimes strangers or people I hardly knew.
