Weekend walking!

Saturday we went to our small town's ALS walk.  One of the Doctors that used to work in my office was diagnosed with ALS a few years ago and since he's a big figure in our community, the community has embraced fundraising for this horrible disease!

The walk was 4km (or so I'm told, it didn't take us long to do it) and we ran a few times!  I'm feeling compelled to run again. :)  Lately it just seems to keep niggling in my head!

Lara wanted to wear a T-shirt too!

Sunday my sister and I headed to Oakville to walk the Weight Watchers/Running Room Walk It Challenge.  It's a 5k walk that is put on every year and proceeds to go breakfast for learning.  It was a little harder than the ALS walk the day before, hence I only "think" it was a 4k walk.  This one took the better part of an hour and we were walking at a pretty steady pace.  My ankle and legs were sore from running the day before though, so that might have added to it. :)

Here's Annie and I in the Running Room!

And this is one of the amazing views on the walk!  If you look closely, you can see the Toronto skyline in between the trees!

We were starving when we were done, so we grabbed our swag bags and headed to Cora's for breakfast!  I love this restaurant, they always pile on the fruit!  

Weigh in is tomorrow, not too optimistic, I'm still up a bit from last Tuesday, lots of water weight from the walks.  I gained 2 pounds between friday and sunday!  So I don't think I'm going to reach my goal of being out of the 200's this week, but we'll see.  Stranger things have happened.  I am guzzling a TON of water to flush things out!


  1. I love Cora's! It's a little pricey, but so much better than a typical eggs n' bacon breakfast

  2. I don't mind spending a little more if it's healthy!

  3. oh your breakfast looks yummy.
    my friend does an ALS walk every year (what a horrible thing to have -her youngest brother had it and died within 1 year of being diagnosed), anyway hers is always a 4k. which confused me cause they are normally 5Ks.
