2017: A Year in Review (because that's what bloggers do)

Oh hey there.

It's the end of the year, the week between Christmas and New Year's. The one with a thousand memes about how disorienting this time is. Something like this:

To be fair, I have turned into one of those people. I have melted into my couch.

I have officially turned into a sloth.

This is also the time when bloggers do the ol' year in review, so I decided to do one too.

Well, first, I moved into a new place.

Technically that was last December but it was "a year ago."

I was an ambassador for Coeur Sports!

I love the company and all they stand for. Unfortunately I was not much of an ambassador, and the reason has to do with the next point.

Let's talk about all the races I did this year.

Aaaaalllll the MANY races I ran this year.

Ok yeah. It was just one. But it was a big one!

And even though it really kinda sucked for the last 20 miles, I got to run it with my favourite runner!

After that I was done with most exercise for awhile and am just now starting to get in some very slow, very short runs as well as build up my core (this time I'm really going to stick with it).

I've also been a bit busy once again with this:


While I am actually very excited, we managed to choose a crazy time to go:

I've had to make some wardrobe adjustments.

I have no plans yet for 2018, but I'm looking forward to new adventures "in the six"!

What are you planning for next year?

Do you live in/have favourite things to do in Toronto?

Do you have a year end review? If so, please share it in the comments; I'd love to read it!



  1. I just love your illustrations! I'm glad you had a good year! Chicago is the best marathon, just saying. Good luck on your move!

    1. Thank you so much, Wendy! Yeah, it was definitely not *my* best marathon...but there were lots of things that made it excellent!

  2. Oh, how exciting! Toronto is a great city. I've been a couple times, many years ago. I don't have any recommendations, though, cuz it was forever ago. :) Best of luck with your move. And staying warm.

    1. Thanks Clarinda! I'm really looking forward to it, cold and all :)

  3. I've been thinking of dusting off my blog and have a few half written drafts. Maybe for you, I will actually click publish with a year in review.

    Plans for next year include getting fit and rebuilding strength and probably some long distance running races. I'm still on a cycling team, but meh - running has my heart right now.

    Congratulations on another new adventure!

    1. Oh Lindsay, I know that feeling! Do I blog or not bother? I would love to read your review if you choose to do it.
      I'm with ya on the strength building. I hope the next year is great for you!

    2. Ha, well, I was looking for an excuse to procrastinate today anyways. Here it is:

  4. Dang! You lived just a couple hours away for a whole year and I never got to meet you! I hope life is good in Toronto ( because we already know that it will be cold). I hope the running goes well!

    1. It's true! Of course "a couple of hours away" depends on traffic, doesn't it? I hope you're enjoying your warm weather!

  5. Good luck on the move! That's an adorable sloth.

    Boyfriend and I fantasize about moving to Canada (the US is so depressing right now...). But becoming a citizen is way harder than you'd think!

    1. Why thank you! Citizenship processes are so long and convoluted; bleh.
