Félicitations à Karine et Éric, les heureux parents de ce petit trésor. Il a été longuement attendu!
Bienvenue Maxime dans notre grande famille élargie. Je te souhaite une belle vie, remplie d'amour et de bonheur. Tu verras que ce monde n'est pas toujours beau, mais que si tu t'entoures bien, tu y seras très heureux. J'ai hâte de te voir grandir et j'espère courir avec toi un bon jour!

The appointment itself was very inspiring. The person who treated me is an Ironman and he had many runners, cyclists, Ironman pictures in his office. He made me comfortable right away when he encouraged me to keep training and who knows? Maybe I would be doing an Ironman someday.
I came out of my appointment feeling pumped up and ready to attack my 10K training... The running part of the training will wait a little bit, but in the meantime, I will work at the gym and increase my strenght. I will also spend more time on my bike. This morning, I went with JF during his LSD and biked for about 1:15, a good 17K. My legs were dead when I came back home, but it felt very good!
I am now listenning and looking at the live feed from Ironman Lake Placid, where a few Running Mania friends are competing today. It's so exciting and inspiring!!! I don't get tired of hearing strangers being told "You are an Ironman!"
Now, I can't wait to hear about my friend Karine, who was supposed to deliver her first baby today. I hope it went well and that mom and baby are OK.

It’s been 2 weeks today since I last ran, because of shinsplints and lower back pain. I’ve been very depressed about this because I need to run to be physically and mentally healthy. I’ve been going to the gym though, trying to keep in shape and maybe even improve my cardio capacity.
I’m seeing a chiro/ART provider next Friday and I can’t wait to “get fixed”. I’m hopeful that this will help me a lot. I’ll finally get treated by someone who knows what he’s doing.
In the meantime, I’m taking it easy today. The forecast calls for 40+ temperatures here.

J'ai décidé de suivre la vague et de démarrer mon propre blog. J'y parlerai de mon entraînement de coureuse débutante et de mes points de vue sur la vie en général.
I decided to start my own blog. I will discuss my beginner runner's training and give you my point on view on life in general.
