Feeling Throw-Uppy

Last year I was in the midst of training for the Niagara Ultra 50km race when I was sidelined by my ankle. Because I don’t like leaving things unfinished I’m determined to conquer this race in 2014. As part of my training program I sat down the other night to figure out exactly what I’d […]

What’s Another 7.8km?

Yesterday¬†I wrote about the upcoming racing season. In that post I indicated that I had signed up to run the Hamilton 30km Around the Bay, and the Toronto GoodLife Marathon in March and May, respectively. There was also talk of running the Chocolate Race in Port Dalhousie, and the Yonge Street 10km. I finished the […]

Let The Race Season Begin

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 […]

Those were good days, no? Apparently this weekend […]

Death To Goofy

Okay, maybe Death to Goofy is a little extreme. I don’t want Goofy dead. I just want to crush his race a little bit. Tonight I continued on my quest to do just that. How did it go? The last few miles were tough. Really tough. My neighbours were probably wondering why I was yelling […]

The Sixth Element

Remember yesterday how I rambled on and on about being a big waste of carbon? Okay, maybe I didn’t specifically write that I was a big waste of carbon, but given how lazy I felt and the less than A-Game I put forth for the Three-way Challenge of Awesomeness, I’d be hard pressed to provide […]
