I kind of wanted to write a recap about this race.
It’s not that this was one of those races where I was scared to run the distance. I train for marathons now so running a 10k, while it can be exhausting depending on the weather, does not ruffle my feathers [...]
I love to race.
There are many reasons why someone will strap on some running shoes, pin a number to their body and step up to a starting line. Some race because they have their eye on a bigger prize and time is of the essence. Some race because the medal [...]
It’s three weeks until the Bluenose Marathon.
This last weekend should have been the epic 23 mile run. It didn’t happen. Neither did the 21 mile run scheduled the week before. Six weeks before the marathon I happen to catch the “bug” that had been going around. Luckily I wasn’t as [...]

I didn’t really care.
This is me.
Yes I am dressed like a taco.
A holy hell if I had balls they’d be frozen to my thighs cold taco.
This was taken yesterday (February 5th) and the weather was a chilly 9F. Factor in the wind chill and it was a [...]
Confession: I don’t like to eat.
I know it sounds abrupt and general in terms of the concept of eating but for the most part I really don’t like to do it. Some days it’s so much of a chore (read: emotionally) that it’s easier for me to just have a smoothie [...]
