I just posted a summary of my marathon (here), and almost forgot something of such importance, it would be criminal for me not to mention it. What is so important that it requires another post? you ask. Well, I’m not the only crazy person that decided to run an official race this weekend. And with […]Read more "Because 42.3 Kilometers Would Be Crazy: One More Thing"
The title of this post is courtesy of some random sign that I saw as I ran the Ottawa Marathon on Sunday (which, by now I’m sure you know is 42.2 km). To be honest, I really wish I had the time to pull out my camera while I was running to take photos. I […]Read more "Because 42.3 Kilometers Would Be Crazy"
Today was the big day. And by big, I mean epic. Today was the Ottawa Marathon – my first ever marathon. And it was AWESOME!

Anyway, today is carbo-loading day. That is, today is the day that Mark and I are supposed to be consuming lots of carbs (good carbs […]Read more "Carbo-Loading With Cinnamon Buns"
So it has been a while since the nerds got together for a night of, well, being nerds. In fact, the last time I reported on such an event (known to those in the know as Nerd Caucus) was back in the days of yore when we gathered to celebrate the awesomeness of Pi Day, […]Read more "Nerd Caucus: The Re-Nerdening."
So how did you celebrate the epicness that was yesterday? You know, the combination of all things awesome known as Towel Day, National Plank Day, National Wine Day (which I was only alerted to later in the day – thankfully not so late as to prevent me from partaking in the appropriate celebrations), and last, […]Read more "An Orgy Of Nerdiness"
