WOW! I’ve been nominated for a Sunshine Blogger Award! Natalie Harris nominated me on her blog Paramedic Nat in this post here.  On her blog Nat is currently chronicling her mental health journey to recovery.  Part of it acquired while working as a paramedic.  I highly recommend following her both on her blog and on Twitter.  Her goal is to educate and help people (not just paramedics) with mental illness to seek help and to know they are not alone.  She is very candid in her posts and is such a better writer than me!  Every chance I get I try to read her posts in the hops that I can learn something from her!

Here’s how the Sunshine Blogger award works:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you
  2. Answer the questions they gave you or the same ones they answered
  3. Nominate other bloggers
  4. Notify the bloggers

Here are my answers to Natalie’s questions

What is the most important thing to you?

The most important thing to me, you guys may already know, is my family.  I will drop anything to spend time with them.  They are the light of my world!

If you could go anywhere in the world right now where would that be?

Well that’s easy!! To a Disney park!  Maybe to one I haven’t been to before, though, like Disneyland Paris.  They now have a runDisney event out there that is on mine and my wife’s bucket list.

What’s your favourite thing about blogging?

It gives me a chance to share a piece of my life with you.  It’s been helping with my writing, which never was very good (I always hated English classes! lol).  It has made this world a whole lot smaller and connected me with so many new friends!

What’s your favorite thing about yourself?

This is not an easy question for me to answer.  I’m not sure I have a favourite thing ….. I always find it difficult to sing my own praises so I think I’ll take a by on this one 😉

What has been your biggest challenge in life so far?

Parenting! Trying to teach young impressionable minds and have then turn into well mannered, smart, morally sound, productive members of this crazy world is no easy feat!

Do you believe in love at first sight?

Yes! I believe there is that one perfect person out there for everyone!  Thankfully I am fortunate to have found that!

Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

Wow 10 years?  That means my daughter will be 18 and my son 16!  That’s kinda scary!  Funny how when you become a parent you start relating things to your children like this.  So in 10 years I will most likely be driving my daughter off to a post secondary institution somewhere and teaching my son to drive!  I will hopefully have run many miles with my amazingly courageous wife and many more upcoming!

How many languages do you speak?

Unfortunately just English.  I really wish my parents had taught me Dutch when I when I was a kid but I only know a few words and can pick out some words of it.  My kids are in French immersion at school so I am hoping to pick up a little more of that through them.

What do you think is your best post so far? Link

My best and most favourite post so far is a post I wrote reviewing my 10k run with the Justice League Runners.  It was such an amazing experience for me and I can’t wait for the next!  https://paramedicmike.ca/2015/04/22/running-with-the-jlr_toronto-for-a-special-kind-of-personal-best/

What’s your favourite quote?

Pretty much anything that came out of Walk Disney’s mouth lol, I wish I was around when he was alive!  My favourite, though, is “All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them” Walt Disney

If you could recommend one fellow blogger to me who would it be? And Why?

Carrie Burrows: From www.CarrieBurrows.com I never can sing her praises enough!  She is the one who has mentored my wife and I from the very beginning on our health and fitness journey.  Plus she is also one of our Disney peeps so there’s bonus points for that! 😉  I highly suggest you hit her up, she loves to answer your questions and ensure you are the best you you can be!

So now onto my nominations!

Carrie Burrows

Robyn Baldwin

Scott Evans

I’d love to see what guys have to say and hopefully learn a little more about you.

Happy birthday to this smart, talented, beautiful girl today. ❤️❤️❤️ @kayleigh.dancer011
Moved a couple of weights around the other day. Man it’s hard to get my workout and running desire back again! I did get the chance to try out some @underarmourca RUSH gear that was sent to me! This shirt and tights felt amazing to put on and did not impact my range of motion at all. I could def feel the energy and heat being reflected back to me while I was working out. I did feel muscle soreness for a few days after but I attribute that to my lack of consistency more than anything! The fabric in this line is infused with minerals to reflect energy back into the body and improve performance similar to an infrared sauna. The science behind this says the minerals absorb the body’s heat and converts it into infrared energy that is re-emitted back into the body. This then increases localized circulation which results in improved performance and recovery. Check out what others are saying and search up the hashtag #UARush! I love it and will now be exclusively using this for all my workouts and running! Now if I can just work on my motivation and consistency and will to get out! Lol. I’m sure I’m not alone with this? Have any of you had this problem?
Nothing beats the feeling of brand new @enertorglobal comfort insoles in my work boots! #insoles #teamenertor #foothealth

I did it for the kids, for the younger siblings and for the fans. But they still gifted me the jersey anyways! My heart goes out to this team! I haven’t felt more connected to a team than this year!! Thank you for giving me the chance to make these memories and for the opportunity to create these memories for your amazing kids! I heard from someone during the season that the days I wasn’t able to make it to a game to suit up the kids would say “awww man there’s no Forecheck today??? Now we’re gonna lose!!!” That stuck with me and I felt awful every time I couldn’t be there. Made putting in the suit worth it! Based on their record this year the def didn’t need me there to win game that’s for sure!! Already dreaming of next season! 💙💙💙 #hockeydad #hockeymascot #hockey #IDidItForTheKids #minoratomhockey #2009Falcons
