Running Raw: My time was 38:15 for the 5km

The Toronto Marathon was a blast!! I had such a rockin' time. The vibe was great and the atmosphere was wonderful. I ran without stopping and enjoyed the weather. I kept repeating that I was running for me and for the Lord, who has blessed my life so much. I'm able to walk--wait, RUN! There were djs along the route playing music to keep you pumping and people I didn't even know encouraged me. My hubs and children were there. It's great to see your family cheer you on. Running raw...I love it. I'm planning on the Mississauga marathon. I may do the 2km family run. My son loves to run and my hubs would like to participate. I'd like to do another 5km and then build up to a 10km. Eventually, the Boston Marathon. Fi Real!!

I'm the one in red (hahaha).

Dora the Explorer needed to get out of the way ASAP.

Keeping my eyes on the bananas and oranges for the raw vegan.

Crossed the finish line in 38:15. Next time will be under 30 minutes.

Check out my gold-ish medal.

Running raw!!

I admire you! I used to be really into running but then I got lazy and bored after about a year. Nowadays, I try to walk at a fast pace and do yoga in order to get my exercise :)

Hey Paulina,

I am obsessed with running and I love yoga. Ashtanga is my favourite. It goes well with running.
