“hey mom how about the half in Lisbon”

20 weeks, 100s of winter km, dogs in tow = kahlua & coffee

20 weeks, 100s of winter km, dogs in tow = kahlua & coffee celebration

…. and that’s how it started. Half marathon training while not as arduous as a full, still involves 4 days a week of running and in a perfect world a yoga thrown into the mix, while working a full time job. 

Thanks to my friend and running partner Carolynne (check out her cbc  interrupt this program series, where she just happens to be executive producer too!) our training began. My goal the Lisbon half marathon ! Carolynne’s goal to keep in shape, enjoy the winter outdoors and to be continued….
