Running is a metaphor for life …
I went to Lake Louise, Alberta with my husband to celebrate our 25 wedding anniversary … sounds ancient I know, and because I don’t want to appear even older, I will confess that I got married at 19 … we were just kids and kids are a little crazy - everyone needs a little crazy I think. We have had an amazing life and I would not change anything about our last 25 years!
We spent the week hiking, running, relaxing, eating amazing meals and just generally celebrating life!
We began running together after 10 years of marriage and at 15 years we ran the Vancouver Marathon together … the only marathon that that we have run entirely together - it was my best, not easiest. We have enjoyed countless runs together and it is often during our runs that we discuss life.
Running is a metaphor for life - it takes dedication, commitment, endurance … passion. Running not only takes heart but it makes your heart grow stronger!

Happy Anniversary to my wonderful, amazing and loving husband!
