Run or Dye

A week ago today, I did something that some may say was six months in the making, while I would say it was a lifetime in the making.

I ran my first 5K and I did it with one of my best friends at my side (also her first 5K.) Who, I might add, drove 6 hours from Cape Breton to run with me. #friendship #dedication

But I’ve already waxed on about that experience on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook. I cried, I laughed, I admitted it was all inspired by a book.

What I’m SUPER excited to share with all of you today are some of my favourite snapshots from the day. They say pictures are worth a thousand words – hopefully these convey just how much fun Amanda and I had and why we would do it again in a heartbeat.

Huge thank you to Amanda for joining me on this crazy ride. We did it. Now let’s do the 10K in Cape Breton in October.

Wishing all of you an awesome weekend.

I’m off to the lake!

  1. You’re my hero. In so many way. But I love that you did this. You know you’ve inspired me to do the same but I know I won’t do it as beautifully as you have. You should be ridiculously proud of yourself!!
