Getting Better Every Day

While I've never been afraid of change, this mid-fifties change is an interesting one!

I do love being fit, but am not an athlete, so staying strong has become more challenging over the years.

I completed the Danskin (sprint level) Triathlon in 2007 (an amazing experience!), racewalked a 5k that same summer (came in almost dead last), and since then have sporadically ridden my bike, walked, and practiced yoga (all of which I love and would like to do more).

To scoot myself off the couch and out of my fabulously comfy rocker, I signed up for another 5k. I followed SP's 5k Your Way Rookie Running training, and crossed the finish line surrounded by happy runners on June 2, 3013.

I'm into healthy, organic cooking and eating, and am a bit of a foodie (though I try not to be a snob about it!)

My life is blessed with fabulous, kind people and critters, and I love participating fully!

Personal Information:
Moved from my native Washington State to Ottawa, Ontario in 2009 to live with the love of my life. :)

In my prior life I practiced and taught massage therapy for 20+ years, and then helped people buy and sell homes for a few years.

Now I'm a tutor in English as a Second Language (ESL). I write, volunteer backstage at the theatre, hang out with my sweetheart, friends, cat and golden retriever, read, garden, and cheer on my partner at the racetracks.

I also love supporting my friends, so if you have an event, a business, a show/exhibit/performance, or just need a reminder that You Can Do It, let me know!

Hi Patrice! I just wanted to let you know that visiting your page this week has been fun since you were the featured team member last week. You are very creative and I think it would be so fun to work backstage in a theater.

I'm anxious to visit your blog! I hope you have a great day!

Update...I visited your blog and had a lovely time! What a writing talent you have. I really enjoyed it and I will be back!

Hi there, I'm stopping by to say I hope your week is going great! We are getting close to the weekend, a time that is hard for some of us to stick to our good eating and exercise plans. Now is the time to jot down your weekend strategy and review it each day to help you stay on track.

Keep sparking and emoticon
