Running Tips for Beginners

I would like to begin this post by saying that I am by no means a running coach, a personal trainer or a kin major. But I am what my mother would call “a serious runner”.

Things I liked and did in October

100% Pure lip caramel in truffle – ah baby. This is beautiful. Its 100% organic, as the name would suggest, and is a beautiful hydrating lip colour. It’s a dark rose shade, my favourite kind of shade. It also smells like cake AND tastes like cake. Isn’t that ridiculous? More like awesome. It’s the perfect fall shade. Bonus, its hydrating and looks fabulous blotted. … Read More Things I liked and did in October

My First 10K race

Well folks. I did it. My first 10K race done. Let’s go back to the beginning starting with my arrival at the park.

By golly at this point I knew I made a terrible mistake: not by … Read More My First 10K race

Well today is generally a … Read More 6
