Nike's Run With Hart - Toronto


Sunday, August 2, 2015 was a major milestone for me. I ran the "Nike Run With Hart", just one of the many events hosted by the Nike Running Club that has people running all over Toronto.
The run was along Lakeshore, beginning and ending at the Liberty Grand building. It was an absolutely beautiful day, perfect weather for a run.


I'm pretty sure there were over a thousand people, a larger crowd than usual, probably drawn out by the wanna-meet-Kevin factor. Up until I arrived, I was feeling a bit nervous. God, please don't let me be the slowest runner and please don't let me collapse. I love to run but I have a long way to go before I can call myself a runner. Then I get there and see that the crowd is a mix of the fit and not-so-fit, and I immediately relaxed.



The run lasted about an hour. I'm very relieved to say I ran most of it, with the exception of switching to a walk a couple of times for about 10 seconds. I finished the race with a smile and am proud to say, I wasn't out of breath.

Will I do it again? Hell ya! But the next one is gonna be a 10k...watch.

Here's my twitter post with some video of Kevin Hart getting us hype for the race.

My Secret? Olay Regenerist Multi-Sculpting Cream

I've always looked pretty young for my age but soon after my 40th birthday, I noticed that my skin was changing. I was losing my glow. I was dealing with little random dry patches, a very oily T-zone and mini acne breakouts that I hadn't seen since my teens. I couldn't seem to link these new symptoms to a change in my diet or a new product I was using. Then it hit me, the change my skin was going through was very normal for women over 40.

A lot of women in their 40's experience dryness, an oilier T-zone, and a return of acne. These symptoms are usually the effect of hormonal changes related to premenopause and menopause. Stress and having a sweet tooth can help to bring on adult acne too. I've been using Olay's Regenerist Multi-Sculpting Cream for a while and it works for me. It gives my skin just the right amount of hydration and has reduced the acne breakouts to a minimum. It's exactly what my skin needs and has become a regular item in my stash of skin …

2015's fall/winter in Toronto has been pretty mild but the cold, snowy days of winter have started. If you don't have a good winter coat yet, I suggest you get out there and find one ASAP. Finding the right coat at a good price is not easy but I think I can help.
