Why I Ran My First (and Maybe My Last) Half Marathon


By Sports Nutritionist and Online Dietitian Jana Spindler


As a self-proclaimed gym rat…what was I doing??

Joyful movement to me, is moving my body in a non-judgemental way that is fun and makes me feel good. It does not feel like something that must be done or is a way to burn calories, but rather is something I look forward to and gives me all those feel good endorphins.

The ways that I enjoy moving my body continue to evolve each year and each season of my life. There was a long time, that I was happiest on the basketball court and would spend hours a day there. After retirement from basketball, my time shifted to lifting weights and lifting even heavier weights. Then when I moved to Calgary I discovered my love for hiking in the mountains. Now don’t get me wrong, I still whole heartedly love playing basketball, hiking and lifting weights when I am in the mood, but recently, I have added to my repertoire. I started running more. And I liked it. So I ran further and that felt good, so I kept going.

What was working for me?

Baked Tomatoes Provencal Recipe


Healthy Vegetable Side Dish for Breaded Baked Tomatoes

One of the most attractive, tastiest and easy to make side dishes that are always a hit! These pair well with any poultry, meat, fish, vegetarian or egg dish for brunch or supper. The key for flavour is choosing high quality seasonal tomatoes in the summer and fall or local hothouse tomatoes in the winter.
