I swear I’ve sat down with the laptop on the couch multiple times and struggled to put words together, something that didn’t sound like a scattered mess… but I’m biting the bullet and letting it be what it is because it’s been a whirlwind since I last wrote.
We officially launched the #SCMForeRunners on January 1st, which has since provided a few opportunities to meet the rest of the members of the team. We handled out run gear at the Marathon Route Reveal and landed on BT Calgary promoting all things Calgary Marathon. (Tina and I even provided an entertaining snowshoe crash… Ha). We’ve ran together and planning to attempt a Yeti race next month (racing in snowshoes – life is an adventure). Here’s to new friends that love to run…

But here’s the thing… I eat well, run regularly, never smoked, rarely drink and sleep enough. Stress levels probably could be a little better but I’m doing my best to follow what they say to do. As I’m writing this blog post, I’m attached to a 24-hour holter heart monitor.
Please go to your doctor and get your annual exam. Get blood work done. See what you are lacking or need to cut back on. Be honest with yourself. Learn and understand your body.
Give your body every chance to be as healthy as it can be!
