  • Catching the Sunrise

    King Mountain Sunrise Hike  I have no idea why it took me so long to hike up to the area’s tallest “peak” to catch the sunrise. I’ve been so accustomed to hiking in the evenings to catch as many sunsets as I can that I decided to switch things up today. And man, am I glad…

  • Day 2 – Lake Minnewanka and Johnston Canyon

    Lake Minnewanka Day two of the trip was quite simply fantastic. I had a welcomed break from protein bars courtesy of our hostel’s complimentary breakfast – copious amounts of orange slices, toast, oatmeal, pancakes and muffins! As if the breakfast wasn’t enough, we were fortunate to have met some really awesome people from all over…

  • On Half Marathon #1

    “We have run through the sleet and snow. We have weathered frozen toes and too-short days. We have conquered another Canadian winter. What is our reward? To run down the Rideau Canal in spring sunshine. To have a whole city cheering us to the finish line. To experience one of the world’s very best running…

  • Day 1 – Tunnel Mountain

    Hey everyone! I was recently in the Canadian Rockies, and I don’t even know where to start. I feel as if I have so much to say about my trip and so many photos to share, but it’s the sort of thing that you’d just have to experience for yourself. My whole life I’d have…

  • Elation

    Have you ever had one of those runs where you just feel like you could go on forever? You just know, in the heat of the moment, that you’re onto something spectacular? It’s an amazing feeling. Call it runner’s high, or whatever you want, but when it hits you, oh man, is it something. It’s…

  • Group Runs

    For years I’ve been running solo. Once my days competing in cross country and track were over, I found myself without a team/running group. Now, I didn’t mind it entirely, and I still don’t, but it’s amazing what training in a group can do for you. I got so accustomed to training solo that I forgot…

  • Get Outside

    Just because it’s winter doesn’t mean we have to hibernate! In fact, there’s tons of fun stuff to do outdoors during the winter months. A few weekends ago I went snowshoeing for the first time and it was actually the best thing ever. It was a last minute toss up between that or cross country skiing,…

  • Happy New Year!

    I’ll be honest, I’m not huge on new year’s resolutions, I never really have been. I’d say I’m more of a proponent of consistently setting goals, and re-adjusting them. However, I recently read an article that really resonated with me. It was written by Adam Kreek, a champion Olympic rower and motivational speaker, among many…

  • Best Tips for a Successful Magazine

    Good ideas don’t require proper planning or schedule; nor do they benefit from exhaustingly long meetings and conversations with management. They emerge from experiments, from playing around with things that you care about, things to which you have an emotional attachment. And quite often they need a creative chaotic environment to flourish and grow. However,…
