Liebster Award for meeeeeee!

liebster awardThe lovely, talented and fast (yes, I said fast) Kris from Canadian Girl Runs nominated my blog for a Liebster Award.


The Liebster highlights new bloggers or bloggers with a smaller following so that they can get a little traffic!


It’s always nice to get a little shot in the arm and know someone has read – and possibly enjoyed – my ramblings.

Questions from my nominator, Kris @ Canadian Girl Runs!

  1. What is your favourite distance to run? For training purposes I feel nicely worked over after a 5-miler.  Right now, I’d say a 10K is my racing favourite.  Mind you, I still have a 25K to meet at the end of the month so my answers could change!
  2. If you could run a race anywhere in the world where would it be? Short term goals – I’m looking with runner’s envy upon the Vancouver SeaWheeze!  I’m going to be on the ball for the 2015 registration.
  3. Who is your biggest fitness inspiration?  I’m inspired by everyday people who make fitness a priority in their lives, whether they are friends, colleagues, or virtual peeps. Surrounding myself with all that positive peer pressure helps me achieve my goals, and push for even greater challenges.
  4. Ten years ago today, what would be the “most played song” on your iPod (or walkman, or mp3, or discman…)? Ten years ago I was living in Dubai, raising two young boys and working insane hours in the hotel/PR industry.  I used to play a mix tape of Brit hits my former boss made for me.
  5. What is your favourite restaurant? I go where there’s goat cheese.
  6. What is the best advice you could give someone who is just starting to get into fitness? Take it easy, set bite-sized goals and you will set yourself up for a solid lifestyle change.
  7. Favourite dessert? Can I say goat cheese?
  8. What is one piece of technology you just CANNOT live without?  I’m pretty addicted – much like a teenager at the dinner table – to my iPod for music, podcasts and the good old Internet.
  9. What is your favourite TV show? Netflix – does that count?  I love Netflix because I can have one night stands with Lost, Breaking Bad, Sons of Anarchy, Gossip Girl, Downton Abbey, Dexter, etc and then move on to the next binge.
  10. Finally, what made you decide to start blogging? I started blogging about my fitness journey so that I could keep track and hold myself accountable. As well, having a platform to share ideas and motivation. Maybe I could inspire someone else one day.
