May Challenge

Week One ✅

While Mino enjoys just laying in the sun I think she's loving the extra runs and having fun ☺️ Just a little under half my goal! Thanks for the support so far ♥️😊

If you'd like to donate and help me to reach my goal, click here 😊

Week Two ✅

The fundraising site doesn't have the option to upload photos but I have been using a fun little app that has within in it group challenges and races that you can sign up for every week. Living on an island I am a little removed from the social aspect of those types of group challenges so it is nice to have an online network supporting you and cheering you on. 

I was really sick from Thursday until today (the first day without a fever), so I focussed more on strength training and yoga in the latter part of this past week. I am hoping to start up the running again tomorrow! Here are a few of the screenshots from my runs with Mino 😊.

Week Three ✅ 

The trouble with working with kids is that I'm constantly catching the new, cold of the week! I'm almost fully recovered and ended the week strong with an aerobic step interval class. I like to think I can dance but these group style classes remind me of my trouble following the leader. Maybe it's actually more reflective of my free soul. Nonetheless, a community mom was offering a free class and so here I am about to step to the beat for the end of this workout week!

Now to put my phone down and get ready to sweat.
Wish me luck!
Or, better yet, CLICK HERE and donate and support the cause 😊

“Pain or love or danger makes you real again....”

In a couple of days, I start a month-long fundraising challenge to raise money for the BC cancer foundation. I was inspired to sign up by the recent passing of a friend. The last time I was in Vancouver exploring street art was the day I saw him before he died. I have a real thirst for urban art and he and I would chat about different murals in the city. 

I was lucky to have a partner in crime while in Florida since these art hunts are often coupled with wandering down streets and alleys that are in some cases iffy, to say the least. Today I was alone making the journey between two murals that have been on my list for a while. I finally got to see them and found a whole bunch more in between as I jogged with purpose on each sketchy detour. 

While the distance covered was not really that far it was a nice way to kick off my challenge and it certainly got my heart racing in more ways than one...

“It all ends in tears anyway.” ― Jack Kerouac, The Dharma Bums

I spent my spring break in Florida this year and so there was no better beautiful beast to represent March's Love Wins species, in my mind, than the iconic Florida Panther (Felis concolor coryi).
