slowly but surely

I've recently taken up running and I wasn't sure I wanted to blog about it. But we've been at it long enough now that I'm totally confident in our goal.

Lovely friend T has been a runner for years and has completed many competitive races, including marathons. She recently became a neighbour so now she and I, and lovely friend A are running together 5 days a week (minus days with torrential down pours).

Since our running regimen started on September 23, we've run almost 50 km. We started out on a run 3-walk 1 (minutes) schedule, followed by a run 4-walk 1, and now we're just running the whole time. Our goal is to run the Hypothermic Half (a half marathon = 21 km) in February.

So to all you runners out there — have any advice for us?


  1. That's awesome! Good for you. My best friend is also working on running, she's been doing run 2-walk-2 for the moment, and I'm so proud of her. Stopping by from SITS this morning to say hello! I love your blog template, it's so pretty!

  2. Great blog today Lindsey! We are definately going to reach our goal. And we'll have to go on a turkey trot on Tuesday to run off the turkey....or in your case other Thanksgiving treats :)

    Have a great weekend :)
    Hope you have a nice 1st Anniversary. See you Monday :) xo

  3. I don't know if it's just me or if perhaps everyone else experiencing problems with
    your website. It seems like some of the written text within your posts are running off the screen.
    Can somebody else please provide feedback and let me know
    if this is happening to them too? This might be a issue with my
    web browser because I've had this happen before. Cheers
