Challenge Yourself and Come Alive!

CHALLENGE YOURSELF AND COME ALIVE! by Julia James, Certified Life Coach I recently completed a 30km cross-country skiing marathon – a real stretch for a girl who lacked confidence and skill in high school athletics. But this journey wasn’t about competing; it was about completing… and contributing. My efforts were inspired by a desire to raise funds for my favourite charities. After four skiing lessons, I was armed with techniques and [...]

YEAH! I did it! x-country ski marathon for positive change

Saturday, February 2nd was the big day. It was -16 degrees Celsius (3 degrees Fahrenheit), with sunny, blue skies and almost no wind. Perfect conditions for my first marathon! While I was getting into a rhythm, all of the tips from my trainer, Georgia, came to mind. I felt like she was skiing right there with me, telling me the cues: “Pop!”, “Fly!”, “Up!” Amazing what you can learn in only [...]

Tomorrow is race-day! Ski marathon for positive change

Just a little reminder: The x-country marathon is this Saturday, February 2nd. Thank you so much for your support! I am excited about the marathon!

Getting Ready – Ski Marathon for Positive Change

I have been training hard for the upcoming x-country ski marathon. In mid-January, I went away on a mini retreat in the snow for my birthday with my good friends. While they were still warmly tucked in bed, I was up before dawn every day skiing. The feeling of being at peace with the snow, the stars, and the world at 5:30am as I was skiing through the magical quiet winter [...]

X-Country Ski Marathon for Positive Change

This year has been amazing for me in so many different ways, including my growing and flourishing business. I am making a tangible contribution to people’s lives every day. One way that I am expressing my gratitude is by participating in a 30 km cross-country ski race in February of 2008 to raise funds for my favourite charities. Please help me give back to the community and [...]
