I’m thinking about starting this blog up again.

I don’t know what it will look like but I feel it will mirror my social media accounts: Running and Family.

I’m about to embark on a 10K training plan that will, if all goes according to plan, find me crossing the finish line at Rock n Roll Vancouver in under an hour on October 24, 2015


I have a lot of work ahead of me but this time I will have a local friend (or two) along for the run!

And the kids? (yes plural, we have a daughter now too!)

Lincoln is 6 and heading into grade 1.

Teagan is already 3 and will start pre-school in the Fall.

Glenn is 11 next month and still as active as ever.

Andrew and I are older and possibly wiser but that’s up for debate.

I’ll be changing the look of this blog in due time but for now it’s kind of nice to type away on the keyboard again.

Yikes! My apologies for neglecting the blog for what seems like an eternity. I have no real excuse except that the winter/ski season schedule has forced me to put the blog on the back burner for the past few weeks. Rest assured, everyone is doing well. Especially this little doozer:

My goal this week is to get some pictures edited and uploaded for blogging purposes. If you don’t hear from me feel free to bug me until I post!

Tobogganing at Baldy

We took Lincoln tobogganing for the first time Christmas day and he had a blast. We borrowed a great little sled from our friends and Lincoln fits perfectly into it.

It was a beautiful day at Baldy and Lincoln enjoyed being pulled around by Dad.

He also loves to drag his hand in the snow as we are moving. Believe it or not, this actually creates a bit of resistance and I can always tell if he is doing it or not.

After hiking a bit too far to the left of the tobogganing area we had to cut through some deeper snow.

Tobogganing for us parents isn’t as we remember. We have to do the work both uphill (pulling Lincoln back to the top) and downhill (running beside him so he doesn’t crash).

Glenn grew-up on this mountain, of course he was with us 🙂


Lincoln and I spent a lot of time out on the hill over the holidays while Dad worked. He loves being outside. I always know when he wants to go out too because he brings me either his boots or mittens and says “Ou-side”.

Lincoln ended the day with a short slide all by himself. I love the look of pure joy on his face at the end of this video.
