Ready, set, go!!!

Dear friends,

I've been treatening to do this for some time now, and the day has finally arrived: the launch of my all-running blog, Halifax Runner Girl!

I've been blogging about my marathon training program on my regular blog for the last month or so, and gradually realized that this needed its own space where I could expand on the theme of running.

So here it is folks. In addition to continuing to blog about my own marathon training process, I plan to include monthly HRG Runner Profile posts, product reviews (a whole post on shoe shopping!!! :) ), cross-training tips (including things like yoga for runners, Zumba and strength training), interviews, recipes, inspirational quotes and more. And who knows -- maybe some guest posts from fellow runners too!

Whether you've been running for years, debating starting to run but just don't know how to get started or simply looking for inspiration to get active in any sport, I hope this blog will be of interest. I'm by no means an expert, and sometimes running is more agonizing than enjoyable, so I also hope it'll be a place for us to share and learn together.

Ready, set, go!!!

And if you are new to me, here are some my links to my previous posts on my first marathon and the first six weeks of my marathon training program.

My first marathon story: Pain is temporary, pride is forever

Getting back into it: Those first steps on my journey of 952.2 kilometres

Week one of my marathon training program: Great tempo, speed bumps, and keeping on...

Week three: Snow, rain, ice, snain, it's all good...

Week four: Whatever it is, find something to kick your butt out that door

Week six: I *heart* two-degree weather, and the importance of cross-training
