The Rad Run


2014-07-05_12.17.47[1]

I don’t run!

It is something my gym teachers have heard me say, my parents have heard me say it, and my friends always hear me say it.

I just don’t run!

I have nothing against people who run. I think it is pretty cool that they get out there and just go for it, and look all graceful doing it too.

But I don’t run!

I rather just walk!

Until for my friend’s birthday, I had to go for a run.

it wasn’t just any run however, it was the Color Me Rad Run….

All I could think was okay, but there is no way I am running any of this…. I can walk….

WRONG!!!

Between her and her mom, they got me running! And to make sure I didn’t say I don’t run, they got proof of me running.

They didn’t just get me running though, they got me having a good time while running. Shocking, I know!!

Color me Rad was probably the most fun that I have ever had before, with just the colors and the scenery around us.

The best part about the run however, I made it to the finish line without dying!

As well I did it with an amazing group of people, where we all just had a complete blast. There were literally blasts of color thrown between us!

But at the end of the day we all had something to jump about, it was just much fun!

I also ended off the entire race with beautifully colored shoes that will stay colored till next year!! Then they can just get even more colored, as well for all the years to come. I look forward to the footprints that I will make, running in these…

My Home


This year marks 10 years in one province, in one city, in one home for myself. I spent a lot of my life moving around with my parents being proud military members, which allowed me to see a lot of Canada growing up. After 10 years, I now feel like I can call Edmonton, Alberta my home. The sight of the city and around the city, makes me call this place home! Some of them include….

The Edmonton Skyline:

2014-06-02_16.57.40[1]There are so many different trails and parks to go and see either the Edmonton Skyline, or attend one of the many festivals that happen throughout the summer. You can go to Fort Edmonton, Hawrelak Park, the River Valley, the Legislative Grounds, or smaller many other parks and walking trails.

Mill Creek Ravine:

Walking through trails such as the Mill Creek Ravine is like a mountain escape. A woodsy trail consisting of a dirt path that winds around a beautiful creek is the perfect escape.

The Legislative Grounds:

Hanging out around the Legislative building, you are sure to see come wild life. The Canadian Geese stand tall, walking around the grounds. The sight of them will give you goosebumps.

The River Valley:
