That’s Me

That’s me. I took up running for the first time at age 32 in the fall of 2006, but was pretty out of shape and it didn’t stick. Could have had something to do with an Ontario winter looming around the corner too. Started taking it seriously again in the spring of 2007, and bargained with my wife for my first decent pair of running shoes by racking up ten final runs with my tired, old, heavy tennis shoes. Since then I’ve been pushing myself to improve and occasionally testing myself with competitive racing. This blog is surely a further symptom of the illness, but with any luck it will also become a means of interacting with other like-minded individuals and sharing our tales from the road.

HI so yes you are a male and we don’t apply to you but i’m sure you have plenty of lady followers that you could pass along to…..
I just wanted to introduce ourselves to you, our company name is Runalicious and our website is Runalicious.ca, here is a little bit from our website as to what and who we are:

Runalicious was born from two women who decided to start running together.

Mile after mile, minute after minute, hour after hour, you learn a lot about another person. Where we were once just friends, we quickly became great friends, best friends, and each others support systems.

Our goal at Runalicious is to help women and young girls show the world around them that they are as passionate and proud about running as we are. Runalicious apparel is casual, stylish, and yes, a bit flaunting.

So I just wanted to introduce ourselves we are from Halifax Nova Scotia and we would love it if you could spread the word about us. The response so far has been great and we would like to continue to as we like to say flaunt the fact that we put so much time and effort into training to do any type of a run no matter how fast, or far, that we deserve to brag a little about it after with a shirt that you can wear since you can’t always go around with your medal on all the time haha.

Thanks for your time

Nicole and Marcia….EAT.SLEEP.RUN.
