POLL: Who Do You Want to Perform at the Olympic Opening Ceremonies?

The world will be watching as the Winter Olympics kicks off Feb. 12 at Vancouver's BC Place Stadium. And while the traditionally lavish proceedings introduce the competing athletes to viewers, the host country is responsible for providing the headlining entertainment. (Remember China's awe-inspiring fleet of dancers and musicians during 2008's summer games?)

Typically, the performers herald from the host country – and Canada has produced a ton of world-renowned talent – from Bryan Adams to pop upstart Justin Bieber to Neil Young. Already, Shania Twain carried the Olympic torch in freezing temperatures through her hometown, Timmins, Ontario. Hopefully she'll get a chance behind the mic in Vancouver, too.

Alanis Morissette struggled with depression her whole life, but recently, she found an effective antidote: running.

Morissette, 35, tells Runner's World that "running has made being depressed impossible. If I'm going through something emotional and just go outside for a run, you can rest assured I'll come back with clarity."

The Grammy-winning singer, who has run two marathons, tries to live a healthy lifestyle, including eating lots of kale. But she still occasionally indulges "in red wine, and it's fun to have medical marijuana once in a while," she says. "I still party and include a little debauchery."

Alanis Morissette is on the run – for a good cause.

The singer, 35, is participating in the Bizz Johnson Trail Marathon on Oct. 11 to raise money for the National Eating Disorders Association.

Training for the 26.2 mile race through Susanville, Calif., has not only gotten Morissette in great shape; it's also "shifted how I view food altogether," the singer tells PEOPLE.

"I've learned how to enjoyably fuel myself," she continues. "Participating in this marathon has inspired me to treat my body like an instrument."

And the musician – who suffered from an eating disorder in her teens – hopes to make some noise and raise awareness for the importance of healthy living.

Alanis Morissette can be tough in her music. Just consider her megahit "You Oughta Know." Now, imagine her on skates with a big stick.

"I've been a hockey fan since I was fresh out of the womb, to be honest," Morissette, 34, tells NHL.com, revealing one of her life's first passions. "It would have been hard not to be in my family since we're all hockey fans."

"I played street hockey a lot," the singer says. "Most Canadians learn how to skate when they're 2 years old. I was one of those kids, so I skated a lot on my figure skates and my hockey skates."

The effects of old age won't be a concern for Alanis Morissette.

Don't count on seeing the singer, who says she "notices new things" about her body every month, searching for a fountain of youth. Instead Morissette plans to embrace her body’s transformation.

"I'm fascinated by aging and how a woman's body changes," Morissette, 34, tells Women's Health's September issue.

"I don't want to spend the next 50 years of my life trying to hide those changes. There's something very relaxing about watching it unfold instead of fighting it the whole way."

While she watches her body evolve, Morissette has stayed physically fit by adding triathlete to her resume.
