I’ve been thinking a lot about this blog lately. It’s not that I’m not inspired to write…well, maybe a little bit. I think it might be that my work in marketing and communications is so busy, that I’m not inspired to write about what I originally set this blog up to write about. I think about those topics day in and day out, and while I love it, I don’t want to sit in front of a computer and write about it in my free time away from work. So I’m going to try a different direction, and write about my other passion – running. And hopefully it will inspire me to post more, thus reviving this blog. So here we go, with what inspired the shift in the first place.
This week, I became a member of the Oiselle Volee team – a group of global women runners inspiring each other through the sport we all love. It’s not a group of elites (because if you know me, I am certainly NOT an elite runner), just women who are pursuing the sport and being the best they can be at it. Sure, it may be the fact that we get a Oiselle singlet to wear at races, which you don’t see very often up here in Canada that inspired me to join; being able to put it on when I toe the line, knowing we are a (sort of) select group. Or maybe it’s the philosophy behind the group, inspired by its founder Lauren Fleshman. Whatever it is, and despite the fact that I prefer running alone than with a group (even on race day), knowing that this group of women runners are here to support me, commiserate with me, laugh with me, and go through the highs and lows of running with me…it’s inspiring. And hopefully, it will inspire me to write more.
So my apologies to all those who started following this blog to read about my thoughts on the wonderful and crazy world of marketing and communications. Hopefully you’ll stick around to hear about my thoughts on the wonderful and crazy world of running. And who knows, maybe it will become a combination of both topics!
And if I get really inspired, you might see some design changes to this blog as well.
Thanks to all my current readers, and welcome to all the new ones. I’m glad you’re joining me on this journey.
