Hi! I’m Jamie
33, northern British Columbian who LOVES running (duh), food, hiking, not drinking, softball, swimming, books, Game of Thrones, self-development and exploring new places, near or far. I’m a cat-mom, wife, daughter, sister and friend, pharmacist and yoga instructor. Come September, I’ll also be a student of registered massage therapy!
I’m no running veteran, just obsessed. Growing up I was a soccer and volleyball player, a tap dancer and a downhill skier. Aside from a few years of elementary school track & field, I don’t have a running background. It was only in 2013 when I was a 28 year old party animal that I participated in a clinic with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Team in Training and completed my first half marathon, the Nike Women’s 1/2 in San Francisco. Looking back, signing up for that running clinic may have been the first domino in a series of big changes I’d start making!
Now it’s 2018 and I have eight half marathons, seven full marathons, a triathlon and over two years of sober living under my belt. I have a whole lot of goals and races on my to-do list! Running is my number one passion and what I’m always working on, and no longer being a piss-tank is really helping with this. Running goes along well with my favourite well-being topics that I weave into my writing, which are the alcohol-free living stuff, and self-development with a main focus on confidence.
This blog is often going to be a place for reflection, learning and inspiration, plus a training log, collection of race reviews and recaps, and anything else I feel like writing about, like growth and LIFE.
Hope you can relate in one way or another, and enjoy! xo
