Mother Nature has foiled us again. After much discussion, plotting, and organization, she decided to throw a huge wrench into our Mount Temple conquering plans.

This year, based on the lessons […]Read more "It’s Time"

There was also talk of running the Chocolate Race in Port Dalhousie, and the Yonge Street 10km. I finished the […]Read more "What’s Another 7.8km?"
And so it begins. Today I registered for my first 2 races of the 2013 running season. Actually, I guess the Donald Duck half marathon and the Mickey Mouse full marathon are part of the 2013 race season, but I’m not counting them exactly. The first race – at least according to my current race […]Read more "Let The Race Season Begin"
