My name is Dianne and I’ve lived in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada all my life. I work in management in professional sports by day, and I’m a full time Mommy to my sons Kendrick and Easton by night.
Why I Run
I started running in 2009 when my husband told me one of his new years resolutions was to run a half marathon. As a kid, I did gymnastics and softball, and was not a fan of running specifically because I was sure it would affect my asthma. But I thought it might be fun, so I signed us up for the Las Vegas Rock N Roll Half Marathon. We went, we mostly ran (I walked some of it and hubby hurt himself so hobbled some of it), and I was hooked! Since then I’ve gone on to continue to do half marathons at least once a year, every time striving to beat my personal best (currently 2:28). Although I love my hometown race in Edmonton, I really enjoy travelling and running races in other cities! My running goal is to complete a full marathon in by the time I’m 40, and I plan to run it in 2021 in Disneyworld!
Why I Blog
As a kid I used to love to write novels. I wrote and wrote, but most of my stories never had an ending because I was always coming up with new ideas! This is part of the reason why I decided to start my blogging journey. I miss writing on a regular basis and I love talking – so blogging felt just right to me. I also love writing about the fun adventure called parenting! My life has changed for the better since having my first son in 2015, but I parenting can be a tough journey sometimes – so I’d love to find people who relate!
