Race Report: The North Face Endurance Challenge 50k

The North Face ECS 50k Championships

This last weekend, caked in mud, sweat and tears, I completed my very first ultra marathon – something I NEVER thought I’d be able do if you asked me a few years ago. This wasn’t just any ultra, this was the insanity that was The North Face Endurance Challenge Championship 50k race in the Marin Headlands of San Francisco. By now, some of you may have heard the stories, the gossip, and the legends of […]

Floating On Cloud 9

Out & Back 10 Miler

I don’t know how I did it, but somehow I managed an average pace of 9:29 min/mile today on my 10 mile run, taking off an average of 35 seconds/mile from last weeks 10 mile run! I know those numbers don’t seem like a lot, but to me they are HUGE!  Am I elated about this? HELL YES I am! Am I shocked? Yup. Am I hoping this is the beginning of something good? Absolutely! […]

Review: Organic Honey Stinger Waffles & Energy Chews

honey_stinger_logo_9gp9

So I’ve been on a quest to find the best balance of nourishment during my training runs. As I increase my weekly mileage, I’ve needed to find the perfect recipe of calories, proteins, and liquids to offset what I lose during those hours of exertion. Now while I feel finding the perfect blend of products will be an on-going process for me during the course of this year, I am finding certain ingredients I can tolerate and I […]

Review: Lululemon Run:Swiftly Tech LS

hi!

Here’s my review on my recently purchased Luluemon Run:Swiftly Tech LS shirt, to be more precise, the exact one on my “Gimmie” list. Price: $68 CAD Size: 4 Color: Sprinkler I’ve had the chance to run in this performance top over the past few weeks numerous times, in the rain, in below zero temps, wind, sleet, sun, you name it and so far it’s been great. It’s made of lightweight wicking material to help keep […]

Review: 2010 Harrison To Haney 100km Relay and Ultra Marathon (H2H)

Team Sweet Feet

Without a doubt, I can honestly say that this race day was one of the best days of my life! About a month prior to the event I received an email from my sis-in-law asking if I’d be interested in being the 8th member of their relay team for the H2H, without hesitation or really any knowledge of the event I eagerly said “sign me up”, because let’s face it, I’m kind of a fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants […]

Training Speed Bump aka Tonsillectomy

KimMD

Today marks day 11 with no solid food, lots of ice cream, no exercise, lots of bed rest, no hitting the pavement, lots of pain medication and most importantly NO TONSILS! Over the course of the past few years I’ve been plagued by chronic throat infections so I knew the day would come when I’d have to part with my two little pals at the back of my throat. February 15th was the day, I […]

Green Monster… Does A Body Good

IMG_2838

The GREEN MONSTER!!! Sounds scary right (and looks a little scary too)? As you know I’m always on the hunt for tasty, nutritious, healthy nom noms that fit into my very active, vegetarian lifestyle, this smoothie is one of my favorite finds. Now I know this little monster doesn’t look THAT appealing, trust me, I was super skeptical too, I mean who really wants to drink something that resembles a blended up combination of Shrek […]
