Last week was a low point.
By comparison, this week was a high point.
This was a great week for me as a runner. As someone who is continually pushing through barriers (mostly the one’s in my own mind) I needed this week like it was no one’s business. [...]
Of that there is absolutely no doubt.
It’s what we do in those times of changes that shape us as people, and as weight loss success stories (and sometimes not so much success stories). It’s no secret that over the course of the last 12 months my life has taken some [...]
A few days ago Meegan and I were having one of our regularly scheduled Skype dates and she mentioned an article in the Huffington Post (Canada) about predictors that your partnership will succeed. As a newly married couple still living 4000 miles apart we have lots of opportunities to talk about things that might [...]

Doesn’t that feel good?
This morning was such a jumble of emotions I’m not even sure how to put them down on this blog. I was nervous leaving the house. My husband gave [...]
My own domain:
It’s official. I decided to go ahead and purchase the domain name “263andcounting”. At only $14 you can’t beat it and it looks all official and stuff. I thought about coming up with some catchy kind of name like others I’ve seen around but I’d rather just keep it honest. I started [...]
