Yes I’m a bit late with the summary. Work got a little kinda sorta ca-ra-zay. After the gluttony of the previous foodie weekend and an almost healed foot, it was time to get my butt back in gear. The runs were short but I wouldn’t call them easy. With my spikes imparting a newfound sense… Continue reading All About a Summary (February 13-
I read a post on a Facebook page that I follow and the poster made an interesting statement: they said that all athletes are runners but not all runners are athletes. Their reasoning was based on an obstacle course that they had recently participated in. Along with the other competitors, there was an elite-level ultra… Continue reading So am I an Athlete Yet?
Well I had a cold that knocked me on my ass for way too long. On the plus side, it left me with some time to cobble together a little post.

So the week didn’t exactly go as planned: after coming back from Ottawa (and hauling my coffee table inside the house all by myself like a… Continue reading Slowly Getting Back on Track
The hips don’t lie. And right now mine are cursing a blue streak at me. Actually, it’s just my left hip but that sumbitch has teamed up with my lower back and the two of them are tag teaming me something fierce. In fact a couple of days ago, I kept waking up with my… Continue reading Shakira was right…
OK folks, I have finally sat my backside down for my report on the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon. This was supposed to be my redemption run as last year’s was disappointing for me as I completely missed my time goal. The fact that I had received a concussion and couldn’t train for two months had been… Continue reading Race Report (a bit late)
My previous post and the comments that I received (thank you everyone who commented which makes this whole blogging thing so much more fun) got me to thinking.
