23 and me

It’s been a minute. It’s a new year so let’s catch up with 23 things.

  1. Easing into a Gentle January and trying hard to just ride the wave this year. Hah.
  2. I checked a bucket list travel item off my life list! Over the holidays, we visited Italy and Switzerland, and I took a photo of the Matterhorn with a Toblerone Bar.
  3. Still running – training for a spring Marathon has started, but I’m keeping the pressure low and haven’t actually signed up for a Spring marathon. I am, however, heading back to the Chicago Marathon in the fall!
  4. And this is where I will be when my friends go to the New York City Marathon.
  5. I fell in love with Soup! while visiting Zermatt, and now I want to own a soup shop in Halifax and call it Soupi.
  6. And speaking of soups. Julia, you’re the best with this cheat sheet for soup-making
  7. January brings 30 Days of Yoga with Adrienne (and Benji). I love this year’s theme, Center.
  8. This People ruin everything list speaks to me. Craft fairs. Now they’re crowded with dozens of MLMs. I just want to find knitted slippers made by an old lady who clearly has a drinking problem, not more Norwex.
  9. I Give You Permission To Throw Away Your Yearbook – I just tossed mine, and I have no regret
  10. I’m currently reading and listening to anything Lauren Fleshman is saying, and I broke down and bought her new book, Good for a Girl: A Woman Running in a Man’s World
  11. My favourite reads of 2022: What Made Maddy Run: The Secret Struggles and Tragic Death of an All-American Teen, State of Terror, Running While Black: Finding Freedom in a Sport That Wasn’t Built for Us, The Midnight Library and Seven Days In June
  12. My favourite shows of 2022: Bad Sisters, Derry Girls (the last season was so good!), Formula 1: Drive to Survive S4, Only Murders In The Building S2, The Afterparty, Somebody Somewhere, The White Lotus S2, Fleishman is in Trouble and Heartstoppers
  13. My favourite movies of 2022: Turning Red, Top Gun: Maverick, The Swimmers and Nope.
  14. I can’t possibly tell you my favourite podcasts because I listen to so many, but I will say that podcasting and walking Miles or walking with friends is my new favourite activity… besides running with friends.
  15. Have you watched Everything, Everywhere All At Once? It wasn’t on my favourite list this year, but this was my favourite speech. I grew up watching Ke Huy Quan and can recite every line of his from Indian Jones and The Goonies. I am so excited for him!
  16. This may be a new TikTok trend, but I’ve been wrapping pickles in cheese slices since 1984.
  17. All of these conversations have happened with my mom and either me or one of my sisters.
  18. I need to start using my rower more, so I’m looking at this app
  19. On my shopping wish list
  20. What’s the Most Helpful Thing a Therapist Has Ever Told You? (the comments are golden)
  21. People of my age, are we excited about Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret? Barbie?
  22. Everyone online is going bananas for this
  23. And finally, on my mind lately… Should I ditch my website or this site? Or should I merge them into one, and if so, which one. Feeling the need to binge, and I barely add content here anymore.
