Hi guys. My name is Margaret, and even though that sounds like your Grandma’s name, I am a young adult living in Canada. I’m a student paying through the nose for a quality education in Commerce (pats on back appreciated) and I couldn’t love it more. I keep sane by running. Often this requires very early mornings, so don’t try to contact me past 8 p.m. I’ll either ignore you or passive-aggresively imply to you that you’re the worst kind of person. I try and eat right and obviously I exercise a bit. I like Harry Potter. That sort of sums it up.

    Hi Margaret,

    I found your blog through the tag posts on WP (For some reason I’m gravitated towards blogs of fellow runners).

    Happy running! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Running sure does help keep you sane after paying bills for school (I can sympathize as I’m in grad school right now…).

    Look forward to reading and hearing some good advice on running!

    I like your blog! I switched to road cycling when I kept hurting myself running. Recently I have started working on core muscles where legs meet torso. I would love to get back to running soon and compete in a triathlon next year. Keep up the good blog work. I look forward to all your posts!

      Best of luck in both your running and cycling! And thank you for your inspirational posts on your blog. Doing a triathlon is on my bucket list too! Marathon first, and once I can afford a bike, I’d love to try the tri. Happy training!

    Oh wow, you’re just like me! I’m slow as all get out but I can last pretty much as long as necessary! Yes! It’s awesome to meet a fellow slow runner! Count me subscribed!

      Finally! A slow runner to commiserate with! Happy to hear from you I look forward to your future posts!

    Your beautiful photo of deer jumping through the dark came up when I was looking for pictures of deer the other day. It’s on my fb profile, and I posted a link to your blog to credit you for the picture. How great to see deer every morning!

      Thanks for the credit but I must admit I didn’t take the photo! I do see deer every morning though. If I was entirely sure they wouldn’t murder me if I took a photo, I would have snapped one. As it stands… I’m not 100% certain. ๐Ÿ™‚
