It’s been 4 days since TBR Sun Life Dream Marathon 2017 and I’m still reeling from all the emotions and excitement. While we’re on our 8th year, each event is never the same simply because of the runners we meet during the 22-week marathon journey.  Each of the 900 runners who signed up for this dream in August had their own reasons for joining, their own highs and lows during training, their setbacks and achievements, and their own stories to tell when it came to the 42.195 kilometers they ran last Sunday.

I wake up each morning (except Monday rest days!) to workout after dropping the kids at school and before heading to work. I try to eat clean, drink lots of water, and keep stress at a minimum. I pretty much think that I live a healthy and clean life.

But then I read about the health risks that our gadgets and electronics can bring us and I suddenly question how safe I am. According to experts, our mobile phones, televisions, ipads, laptops and other electronics deregulate the bioelectric flow in our bodies and can leave us feeling dull and tired.

What can we do to protect us? That’s where Artificer, a line of innovative accessories with patented AERO technology, comes in. They say it aids in rebalancing and regulating the body back to its most effective and natural state. (more…)

– Cyndi Laurin

It’s been a tradition for me to start each year with goals instead of resolutions. I find that setting goals gives me something specific and attainable to work for, while resolutions…well, we know most of those are forgotten before the end of January.

So, here we go go go for my 2017 goals: (more…)

– Cinque Terre, Nov 2016 –

2016, you were a breath of fresh air.  After the past few years of tears, troubles, and trying my best to remain strong, I finally felt that, this year, I didn’t have to try as hard.  As my wise 12-year-old daughter put it: “This year, there was less drama.”  That’s her referring to the oh-so tumultuous life of a 5 Seconds of Summer fan, but it was just the same with me.

This year, there was more time to focus on work (I went back to full time corporate life after over a decade), nurture old and new friendships (I’m antisocial but, hey, I expanded my world and that’s an achievement lol), care for my kids (they’re both mini adults now that I can engage in smart and witty conversations with), and, last but not the least, there was more time to nourish my soul.

I’ve been running for exactly a decade now.

When I look back at how it all began, alone on my old treadmill in our den, it really all started with just one single step. One seemingly insignificant step that changed me and my world entirely… and all for the better.

Since then, I’ve gone farther and longer and I don’t think I’m ever going to stop. Why do I do it? Here are 21 reasons why I run: (more…)
