I absolutely love that I get to work and live in this vibrant small town. For many many reasons, but today I was happy to have neighbours that aren't close enough to see me (and think Im crazy) in the rain, straight-pinning my quilt to one of our sheds so I could snap a pic ๐Ÿ˜‚ I finished this top approx 23 minutes ago and couldnt wait to show you all! This is the "Polar Hugs" fabric collection from @northcottfabric and we have used the shadow boxes pattern to feature these fun prints! It is in the shop! We will have kits shortly, too! #thequiltersbolt #handmade #northcottfabrics #shopsample #polarhugs #millbrookon #millbrookitscloserthanyouthink #autumninontario #fabricshop

We dropped off our first check to @luriechildrens HUGE thank you to all of our volunteers and donors who helped make this happen. Each year, approximately 2-3 per thousand births will have HIE. With these funds, Luries will be able to purchase new and improved medical equipment needed to help save their lives. . . . . We're excited to move forward with our mission and find the next facility that can benefit from our initiatives, as well as develop our family support program. . . . . . #charity #charitywork #philanthropy #foundation #fundraising #socialimpact #4charity #socialgood #donate #giveback #hie #hieawareness #salon833 #833love #chicagocharity #all4your1 #teamluriechildrens #luriechildrens #lifeafternicu #nicu #leahspolarhugs #polarhugs #nicubaby #niculife #nicustrong #nicugrad
This Polar Hugs collection makes me think wintery thoughts (even though it's 90 degrees). Added bonus! We color matched Aurifil threads for you!
Everything is still fresh in my eyes. On this day, 17 years ago 246 people went to sleep in preparation for their morning flights. 2,606 people went to sleep in preparation for work the next morning. 343 firefighters went to sleep in preparation for their morning shift. 60 police officers went to sleep in preparation for morning patrol. 8 paramedics went to sleep in preparation for the morning shift of saving lives. None of them saw past 10:00am Sept 11, 2001. In one single moment life may never be the same. As you live and enjoy the breaths you take today, tonight before you go to sleep in preparation for your life tomorrow, kiss the ones you love, snuggle a little tighter, and never take one second of your life for granted. #Love and #polarhugs

Everything was fine until mile 27 when I started to get dizzy and headache and that was 24 minutes per mile until I came to shortcut and my blood pressure was to high (I have high blood pressure for the last 20 years)rest for a few minutes but I could not recover. For about 6 weeks I taking medication and the side effects still bother me nausea, weakness, headache, insomnia, fatigue, anemia high blood pressure. But I will continue in the events giving the best of me as always. I had no problems with cramps or any type of discomfort in my muscles. I used my carbopro supplement as I usually do. 5 capsules of VO2MAX ENDURANCE 30 minutes before the race. 3 capsules of VO2MAX ENDURANCE 3 capsules of RECOVERY AMINO POWER every 1 hour.

My ONLY goal this year was to finish without needing to be hooked up to oxygen like the previous 2 years in the 50K. And I succeeded!!! How did I do it? This year of all years when the heat was record-breaking? ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ A HUGE part of the credit for my healthy finish in this grueling race goes to @polarhugusa for a simple-to-use, comfy ice bandana that kept me cool, calm and hydrated as the mountain heat climbed over 100deg F!! Many runners had issues out there because of the intense heat and I am so grateful for such a simple tool in my kit to keep me from being one of them this year. ANF25K is in the bag. And my PolarHug will also be in all my drop bags in the future, too!

This is the only Polar Hug that I want. Lol. This new group from Northcott is grey with a spark of red. Who wouldnโ€™t want this Polar Hug! #northcottfabrics #polarhugs #greyfabric #redfabric
A few weeks ago I ran my first 2018 ultra. My best friend and fiancรฉ asked me for my ABC goals before the race. My โ€˜Aโ€™ goal was to PR my 50k but knew that wasnโ€™t in the realm since I have been injured. My โ€˜B โ€˜ goal was to perform well in 100% humidity. My โ€˜Cโ€™ goal was to finish a very hot, humid race.! I got 2 out 3. Thanks to #CarboPro and #polarhugs I ran well in the SE heat! I am ready to conquer this environment and have the best running year. Thanks to my best friend for always supporting me. She is one amazing being who I admire! #reiemployee #reioutessa
