The Blog


Oh. Hi, there. You know, a few years back, I was blogging pretty regularly - running a lot, working on cruise ships (thus the name, "I Run on Water") and generally being a woman-about-town. That last part's not true - I'm a homebody. A lot has changed. My blogging got more sporadic, my blog account... Continue Reading →


Gearing up for Goofy

Well, here we go! I'm heading into the final two races in my racing "season", and they're doozies. I'm running the back-to-back Goofy Challenge at Walt Disney World, which means for the next 2 mornings I'll get up at 3:00AM and head to the EPCOT parking lots to start running a half marathon (Saturday) and...

It’s Tax Time

Don’t check your calendars, I haven’t turned back the clock to April. As an independent contractor-type person, I have until June 15 to file my taxes (Both Canadian and US, aren’t I lucky? I get to file in TWO countries!). I have a love/hate relationship with tax season. I don’t mind paying my taxes (and... Continue Reading →

As a subscriber to the McMillan Training Plans, and a fan of their website, I receive their regular email newsletters. They’re usually a goldmine of information from coaches and athletes, little sparks of inspiration to spur you along in your training. Sometimes I skim, sometimes I read more in depth, but I always pay attention.... Continue Reading →
