Long time, no write.

Obviously I'm the one waving at the camera.

Wow!  It’s been an entire year since my last post.  I certainly didn’t intend for that much time to go between writings.  The truth is, I’ve been busy.  Busy doing school, running, yoga, and raising 4 sons.  I actually haven’t had much time for picture taking, which makes me somewhat sad.  For this reason, I decided to change the name of this blog to Life…as I see it.  It doesn’t mean I won’t share pictures on here anymore, it just means I’ll be sharing so much more.  Be it recipes, running, yoga, or funny randomness.  If I feel like sharing it, I will.

So first things first.  I’ve finally finished high school.  I’m 35 years old, and FINALLY a high school graduate.  It’s embarrassing and empowering all at the same time.  However, I’ll let the latter of the two carry me through to my next adventure; perhaps college.  Secondly, I’ve been spent months training for the longest run of my life; Around the Bay 30 kilometre Road Race.  I did that last week (March 25), and it was the most amazing race I’ve done to date.  Now, just so we’re clear, I enter the races to complete, not compete.  I successfully completed 30 kilometres in three hours, twenty-six minutes, and fifty-four seconds.  I was truly elated as I didn’t believe I could actually do it, but I did.  I can’t wait to do it again next year.  The above picture is of me at the 18 kilometre mark.  I’m the one waving at the camera, obviously.

The most recent adventure my family and I have embarked on is juicing.  Juicing fresh organic fruits and vegetables.  We watched a documentary called Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead, and it completely changed our lives.  Then we watched another documentary called Hungry for Change, and it was changed again.  We are very much excited about this new way of living, even our kids like the juice-no matter how green and gross, or sweet and fruity it is, every time they hear the juicer turn on, they come running.

Okay, that’s all for now.

Hope ya’ll have a great weekend!
