I am a tea fanatic, it is my English roots. I was raised enjoying tea time every afternoon which was often accompanied from homemade scones by my grandmother. Tea – traditional English Breakfast and herbal – is a daily part of my daily diet. Before bed I typically drink an herbal tea to warm my tummy and help me […]

What is Team Sparkle? A fun company that makes sparkle skirts for your athletic endeavours. Why are they better than other running skirts from companies I won’t name? Because you wear them over your regular running clothes. It is no big secret that I love Saucony and only wear Saucony to run in, so when I […]

One of the many reasons I train for and run long distances races is because I get a crazy high from the whole experience. I am an adrenaline junkie. I live for the brief but passing moments when your body is moving through the air faster and farther than you ever dreamed. I live for […]
