My 4 Year Old is Scared to Sleep Alone

My 4 Year Old is Scared to Sleep Alone

My son turned four years old in September and almost immediately started waking up at night afraid. He started calling out and crying for me.  I would go into his room and he said he was scared. He said there were ghosts in his room and they come out and scare him. He has a night light in his room and a music box that lights up on his bed so it is quite bright in his room. At first I would lay down in bed beside him, rub his back and sing his special song. Then carefully get up… » Continue Reading

Fit Family Feature #25 (Megan)

GetAttachment (2)

This weekly post series for Country Fit Family is called Fit Family Feature. In this series I will be interviewing fellow fit parents about what they do for exercise and how they make time for fitness in their busy lives.  I know as parents we are always pressed for time and are often exhausted at the end of the day. Working out is usually the last thing on our to-do lists. I am hoping the Fit Family Features will showcase how other parents are managing and perhaps inspire others to get active.          In this week’s Fit Family Feature, I… » Continue Reading

Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon 2014 Recap

Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon 2014

My friend and running partner Monica just ran her second full marathon this past weekend. She agreed to share all the details of it with us. I love reading race recaps and I hope you do too!     Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon took place on October 19th 2014. It has only been 3 weeks since the Montreal Rock n Roll Marathon, where I finished in 5:15:21. This was my first ever marathon and I was so proud to have finished it, but I felt that I could have pushed myself more. Right after that marathon I decided to search… » Continue Reading

20141018_094606

I have created this weekly run report to keep track of all of my workouts. I love listing my stats and seeing how I am improving each week. I ran my first full marathon on Sept. 28th 2014. My plan for the winter is to maintain half-marathon capabilities and to build muscles especially in my core. I really believe that recording your workouts, especially your runs and paces helps to see your progress more clearly.         Monday, October 13th 2014 RUN 16 km (10 miles) TIME: 1:45:00 PACE: 6:33 min/km – Burnt 1152 calories Monday was Thanksgiving here… » Continue Reading

Climbing Mount Tecumseh, New Hampshire

View from the summit of Mount Tecumseh

I love hiking. I always have, even when I wasn’t interested in fitness or exercising at all. I love being in nature and am at my happiest when I am in the middle of the woods. Now, that I am more active and physically fit than I have ever been, I have started challenging myself to climbing mountains. My very first mountain was Mount Washington, the highest peak in the North East! I was training for a marathon and figured that I was finally in good enough shape to do it. I loved it. It felt amazing. I also discovered… » Continue Reading
